Stammtisch Sept ( Festoval ) Sept 30

Bring a Jockybox and keg

I won’t be at the meeting Wed but bring up Festovall for me.

Saturday, September 30 starting at 5 pm.

Instructions for entering our gated community are included on the FB event page, but at present the gate is open/broken so likely just come on in.

I will have 6 kegs ready and 6+ commercial varieties of Ofest bier.

I’ll have the brats/dogs/sauerkraut ready.

Bring beer, food, fun.  Dress in dirndl/lederhosen.

Likely 20-30 friends/neighbors over as usual, so a BIG time with all the SBL folks as well.

We are working on the SBL trip for next year to actual Ofest in Munich, so likely won’t hold a local event next year.  That means, get your butts to our house Sept 30.

ReBrew 24

Also, we had our first GAWP Re-Brew meeting on Friday.  It appears that the Association is ready for next year.

So, I’ll start getting new info together soon.  It will be sometime mid-July.

Registrar ( Volunteer Needed) Laura Potts is going to take over for Scott

If you are interested in shadowing Scott for the registrar position please contact him.  

He is looking for help with the 2024 Domras Cup and then to take over.

Without volunteers to fill the club positions we won’t have much of a club.  It doesn’t take up much of your time.  If you are enjoying being a member of the SBL, please consider a volunteer position.
