Stammtisch FEB ():

Tap room take over. Had a great time, we should do it more often.

 Stammtisch March(Roger): 4PM until his wife tells everyone to leave. Roger is making BBQ, bring your sides. Post in the Facebook group for the address.

Merch interest (Bryan)

Black t-shirts are all sold out

            What does the club want for 2023?

         More stickers? More glasses? More tshirts? More “Brewers Shirt”?

We can look at setting up a print on demand site and making/ selling shirts, but there would be a standing cost.

Plan on creating a new sticker for the participants of the barrel projects.
