The last regular meeting of 1999 was held last month at John
Sterner's house in Albany. The main items of business were planning
for the holiday party and holding elections. See Dave Wolf's
article later in the newsletter for information about the party.
And without further ado: election results!

And a big round of thanks is due also to the 1999 officers who are
stepping down. Next time you see us, buy a beer for your departing
officers: President Michael Villiardos, Vice President Mark Kowalski
(moving to Festival Chair), Newsletter Editor Herky Gottfried,
Treasurer Lee Smith (back for another year!), and Festival Chair
Lys Buck. Thanks all!

In lieu of our regular meeting, December is reserved for the annual
winter solstice party! This will be held at 6:30 PM on Wednesday,
December 15, at Sam Holmes' house at 1875 NE Noble in Corvallis.
Part of the party is a potluck dinner, so in addition to beer,
bring a dish of food for sharing. Please also bring your own glass
if possible. This is a family event, so bring your family!
Events at the party include the Name the Beer contest, Ring Toss
for Beer, and a Beer & Chocolate tasting that promises to be
delicious. The grueling "Name That Beer" contest will start at 7:00
sharp. Don't be late.
Besides you, we need beer donations of two different kinds. The
first is for general consumption. Bring lots, since the budget has
been cut back from last year. We also need donations for the "Ring
Toss" game. All beer, cool empty bottles, or anything else you can
get a ring around will be appreciated. You can put your name on the
bottles and go for the glory, or put in unmarked bottles and keep
folks guessing. WE NEED BEER FOR THESE EVENTS. Please give generously.
We will also need help along the way with these events, so give a
holler if you can spare a small amount of fun time for the cause.
If you have a musical instrument laying around, bring it along too.
It's pretty hard to keep a jam from happening. See you on the 15th!
HOME BREW DINNER - HELP WANTED!
by Dave Wolf
I have located a chef who is interested in doing a "Home Brew
Dinner" with the club. I need several people to help work on this.
At the moment, I'm looking at about four courses and a price of
about $20.00 apiece. If there is enough interest, we can work in
some vegetarian fare. We will supply the beer and servers. At the
moment, I'm seeing this as a one time deal, for about twenty
people. First come first serve. The location is up for grabs. The
date is roughly in the February time frame. If this sounds like
something you have some energy for, give me or Joel Rea a call.
