CHAOS Board Retreat 2020 Notes

We had a good meeting for the annual board retreat on Saturday July 11th. 2020 has been a tough year, and our club faces a lot of challenges moving forward. The pandemic set us back on events, and issues with the website billing has resulted in uncollected dues.

It looks like I'm going to be hosting our Cerveza party at the end of April. I think we are going to have a public Facebook poll to decide what the theme for our keezer beers will be, but I need a few more suggestions if possible to round out the poll.

Gin Barrel

We have an opening for a brewer to join the Belgian Golden Strong project in the Koval gin barrel.  In December, the third beer in that barrel, a Saison, won a medal at the Happy Holidays competition in St. Louis, in a category with 29 entries.  It's a great barrel.
