Competitions - Pack and Ship Clinic

Hi all,

Our local competition schedule will be light until October.  There are a lot of Midwest and National events that usually fill in this gap until we get to Oct.  If there's interest I'd be happy to do a pack and ship clinic for brewers.  I average 15-17 comptitions a year.  At least 10-12 will require shipping.  In 4 years and over 600 bottles shipped, I've only had 5 broken bottles.  Learn from my mistakes!

I'll cover:

- Packing materials, 

- How to protect bottles

- How to build a leak proof shipping box

- What to declare on your shipping manifest

- Who to ship with and how to get it there cheap.

----

Next comp I have on my radar is the Indiana State Fair in Indianapolis & German Steinfest Challenge in Milwaukee.
