As most of you know Dan Tully was the club’s 2016 Brewer of the Year and he took OUR BEER money. We are currently planning on having a $200.00 cash award for the 2017 Brewer of the Year. If you want to win the Brewer of the Year Award you need to accumulate the most points.
I am keeping the records and it is your responsibility to notify me when you have earned points toward the Brewer of the Year. I will be updating your points as they become available. I have meeting attendance sheets, local competition results and direct reports from you to keep a running score. Just so there is no misunderstanding I plan to WIN. When I win, any cash award that I get will go into the Christmas Party 50/50 raffle and the winner of the raffle gets MY BEER money. All I need to win is to get a head start on Dan and one or two of you all to win the first place in competitions to take Dan’s Brewer of the Year Award cup away from him, knowing that I beat Dan is enough for me.
As of 3/18/17 the 6 club members with the highest points are:
Dan Tully 30 points
Fred Baker 28 points
Ed McDermott 27 points
Larry Lentz 27 points
Tim Rouse 25 points
Bob Roberts 25 points
