THIS MONTH'S MEETING/XMAS PARTY
The Heart of the Valley Homebrew Club meets on the third Wednesday of each month, alternating between Corvallis and Albany. HOWEVER, our next meeting/ HOTV Christmas Party will be Saturday, December 14, at 7:00 p.m. at the home of Sam Holmes, 1875 NE Noble, Corvallis, OR 97330 (758-3563, 715-7635-W).
Please bring a dish for our potluck feast. Donations of beer (purchased or homebrew), or relevant beer-related items would be most welcome for prizes in the annual ring-toss event. If you would like to donate a stainless steel brewpot, but are worried that a ring-toss ring won't fit around it the game master will use bottles with "gift certificates inside" for all prizes that are odd sizes and shapes. In other words, all donations are welcome.
To get there:
From Albany, follow Hwy 20 toward Corvallis. Turn right on Seavy Avenue, right again on Seavy Circle, then left on Noble. Follow Noble all the way to the end (it makes a 90 degree turn half way there). 1875 Noble is the last house on the left.
From Corvallis, well, to say the least it's tricky. According to Sam, he usually takes Hwy 99 (the northern continuation of 3rd Street). Turn right on Walnut, left at Conser, an immediate right on Seavy Avenue, then left on Seavy Circle and a right on Noble. Follow Noble all the way to the end (it makes a 90 degree turn half way there). 1875 Noble is the last house on the left. This round-about route allows you to avoid the problem of "no left turn" from Hwy 20 onto Seavy Avenue when you're heading away from Corvallis.
LAST MONTH'S MEETING
by Mare Goeger
The November HOTV meeting was held at the home of Gary Terrell. The beverage and food spread on Gary's dining room table seemed to be the focal point of this meeting. Aside from a good showing of homebrews brought by club members, our host kept the hors d'oeuvres flowing. In fact, I can hardly remember seeing Gary anywhere except slaving in front of the hot stove. And a hearty round of applause for his scrumptious bacon-wrapped, shrimp-stuffed jalapenos.
Here's a quick summary of the business discussed: The treasurer's report shows that the balance in our coffers, plus dues still to be collected, should be enough for the club to consider a Pub Crawl. Festival plans are rolling along and members are encouraged to participate. Litter pick-up time again approaches (see article below).
Nominations for 2003 HOTV officers was held. Some of the nominees listed were not present at the meeting, so it is not certain if these people accepted their nominations. The election is to be held at the December meeting/Xmas party.
