Who’s ready for the first in-person meeting of 2022? And it’s a big one – Annual General Meeting time!
If you’re interested in helping to run the club, please consider nominating yourself before the meeting!
When: Thursday 3 March 2022, 7:30pm – 10pm.
Where: Polish White Eagle Club, 38 David Street, Turner 2612 – main hall.
Please Note: The on-site restaurant is presently not running due to an ownership change. The Duxton is right over the road and serves a great meal.
Who: Attendance for non-members is free for their first meeting, but after then a paid membership is required.
Please make sure you only come if you are feeling well and not displaying any symptoms (get tested if you are!). COVID-19 measures have been loosening but best to check ACT Health’s restrictions as they’re changing over time. At the time of this email we are required to check in at licensed bars and pubs using the Check In CBR app and masks are still required indoors but we’re fine for numbers and now can have a beverage while standing as well as sitting…progress!
Annual General Meeting and Committee Election
The AGM covers off a range of club business, but of particular note is the Committee election.
If you are interested in helping run the club as a member of the Committee, express your interest in advance of the AGM by contacting our President Michael Brown (MTB on the forum), get in touch with the person who currently holds a position you’re interested in (list available here) or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Nominations are welcome on the night as well.
Speaking from experience, joining the Committee is a really great way to get more involved in the Club, meet more members, take part in pretty much everything and help make the Club as great as it can be. It’s run by members just like you and me, so get involved!
The Committee is currently comprised of the following positions:
– Social Secretary
– Competition Secretary
– Education Officer
– Asset Manager
– General Members
Bring your beer/brews to share
Remember, our meetings are all about brewing – which includes sampling. Bring your best in bottles, growlers or kegs, and remember you earn NOOKIE entry points for the annual prize draw.
Monthly 6-pack swap
Bring 6 of your brews and you’ll go home with a mixed 6 of beers made by your fellow club members. The more people we get the better, there isn’t a limit on the number of people who can take part and it’s a great way to get feedback for brewers of all abilities. Label your beers and post what you’re bringing on the forum.
Raffle and NOOKIE
The raffle returns! Prizes, beer and brewing prizes!
We’ll also be drawing the winner of the annual NOOKIE prize – this year the winner is going to Whitton Malt House. It’s where Voyager Malt comes from, heck yeah.
No education this month as we’ve got AGM business to do. Stay tuned for next meeting though.
