We will be holding general elections for the club at the AGM on February 1. The positions available are President, Treasurer, Secretary, and four board member positions. On average elected members spend 10-20 hours a month performing club duties, sometimes a little more during events like the VanBrewer Awards, AGM, and Summer party.
If you're interested in a position, feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we can fill you in with more details.
VanBrewers will be holding their Annual General Meeting on February 1, 2014. Parallel 49 Brewing has graciously offered a (heated!) space for us again this year in their lab.
Beginning at noon we will be renewing and signing up new members for this member-only business meeting. The meeting will begin at 1pm and should run no later than 2:30. Standard AGM stuff to be covered includes elections, club business and anything else the membership sees fit. If you would like to run for an elected position or have a topic to bring up, please email email@example.com and let us know! Advance warning will allow the executive to prepare and hopefully have the answers you're looking for!
After the AGM will be our winter reception. Much like the summer event this is a get together like no other! Those who bring a full batch (20L keg, approx 25 bombers, etc..) will be permitted free entry. If you want to attend but have nothing to offer, the entry fee is $20 for members, $25 for non-members. Food arrangements to be decided, but worst case scenario there will be a food truck at the front of the tasting room.
With the meeting being so close to the end of January, we will forego the monthly meeting. The February meeting will be held, in the usual space on Commercial, on February 27.
If you have any further questions, feel free to contact us via the email address above.
The November meeting is on for the 28th. See you at 7pm above the Legion on Commercial!
Rumors are there may be a pin cask or two...

Well unfortunately due to technical difficulty Martins presentation did not happen last month. So he's back again this month!
Presentation for the meeting this month will be:
I am excited about our first installment of electric brewing series hosted by Martin Oberg. Martin has done a lot of research in developing his electric brewery (which he has posted about) and will talk about his experience and welcome questions related to his gear.
First, a big thank you to our awesome sponsors! This event would not take place without them. A big shout out to Parallel 49 for providing us with space, and receiving and caring for all of the entries. They took good care of all of our beers, and kept them cool in their walk-in.
Our title sponsor, Russell Brewing for making the best Canadian homebrewing prize available, the Golden Stag. For those of you that don't know, the winner will get a commercial release of their recipe, a brew day at Russell, and you also receive a cash prize!
We would also like to thank all of the judges for their time, and their feedback, as well as the stewards for keeping the wheels on the bus.
And now, keep reading for the results!
