April Club Meeting This Thursday the 19th

Join us for our monthly club meeting this Thursday, April 19th, at Culver City Home Brewing Supply.  We get things started at 7:30pm out back of the store, so bring your best homebrew or even a commercial beer and get to know some of your fellow club members!

Commercial Styles of the Month:  Scottish & Irish Ales, selected and poured by our Communications Director & valiant SCHBF Coordinator, Victor Macias.

Homebrew Kegs of the Month: Scottish, Irish, & English Ales.  Best keg of the bunch wins a $25 gift certificate to CCHBS, which happens at each meeting, so check out the upcoming style of the month on the website and start brewing!  If interested in bringing a keg of your own to an upcoming meeting, sign up with our VP Dave Mauceli, either at the club meetings or via email at: [email protected]

COC- Scottish & Irish Ales (BJCP Category #9): If you are bringing entries for the COC, you’ll need 3 bottles of your beer.  Please see Carl’s Competition Coordinator post for more info or email him at: [email protected]

SCHBF: For those of you planning to spend the weekend of May 4-6th camping with the club and enjoying what your fellow homebrewers have to offer by lovely Lake Casitas in Ojai, please make sure you have signed up and paid for the event.  We’ll also have a Keg signup sheet for all of your Fest Beer contributions.  This is 2 nights of camping with the Southern California Hombrew Festival all day Saturday and cost is only $40 (food included) or $20 (camping only).  You also need to join the California Homebrewers Association as this is your ticket to the fest.  Victor will have a short meeting after the announcements this week for those of you planning to attend; you can also shoot him an email directly with any questions at: [email protected]

OC Road Trip:  We’re heading to Orange County with our own bus stocked full of PG members, great beer, and laughter on Saturday, June 9th.  For those of you interested, you can sign up and reserve your seat on the bus for the very low fee of only $20.  See Kurt at the meeting, or you can shoot him an email at: [email protected]

By-Laws: Our dedicated By-Laws Committee has tirelessly worked to complete a draft of our club by-laws that will be going out for review by the general membership.  Committee Chair, Dan Hakes, will be presenting it at the meeting, introducing the process of ratifying them, and why it is so important for your club.  If you have any questions, comments, or other feedback, please email Dan at: [email protected]

Annual Dues: If you haven’t renewed your dues yet, please remember to pay your dues and help keep our club running.  Dues are $30, and any questions can be directed to our Treasurer, Craig Corley, at: [email protected]

Club of the Year Shirts: For those of you who are still interested in joining the cool kids and getting your very own Anchor Club of Year shirt, we will be selling them at the meeting.  Shirts are $30 each and would be great for those of you attending SCHBF, especially with the long sleeves in the evening by the campfire!  Our resident Fundraiser, Terry Molloy, will have them on display at the meeting this week, but you can always email him at: [email protected] to make alternate arrangements.

Raffle: Our ever-enthusiastic Fundraiser, Terry Molloy, will be selling raffle tickets for $1 each.

Payments:  All checks can be made out to “Pacific Gravity” and only 1 check is necessary for all your club events, dues, & purchases!

Looking forward to seeing you all on Thursday and sharing a great beer to celebrate taxes being done and the end of a long week!
