      Hey Nick,
      We are looking at the first Saturday in August for Beerstock 5060-3.

      However, it's still a bit up in the air because I need a couple more people on a committee to help organize it this year.

        Thanks for sening out so much detail on Beerstock.  I am very much looking forward to it again this year.  The prevous two have been a blast.  We should start organizing at the next meeting.

        However, there seems to be a contradiction in the information.  Could you clear it up?

        * BBQ will be available for purchase from Colin Lenfesty, as a main course - bring cash

        * The main course, glasses, printing, plates, silverware, judges gifts, breakfast, etc. are all covered by the money your club sponsors

        So is the main course covered or not?

        > WHAT IS BEERSTOCK 5060?:
        > Three years ago Beerstock 5060 was the fi rst, legal get-together of Washington homebrew clubs to taste each other�s home brew and talk brewing across home brew club lines.��Yes, it�s like a homebrew beer fest!
        > Thanks to the passing of Bill 5060, after July 26th, 2009 it is now legal to have this type of event for Washington homebrew club members. This year Alison & Mark have gathered a choice group of people from a variety of clubs to help organize this year�s event.��Brian is helping with emails and communications and his wife Lisa is helping with the Check-in at the event.��Nick is collecting swag that will be awarded at the event.
        > Each club can bring as many different brews as they�d like to share with other club�s members.��It is up to each club to organize this.��You can bring beer in bottles, kegs, or whatever.��You may bring a lot or a little.��All homebrewed beverages are welcome, such as , ale, lager, mead, bragot, sours, gueuze or big hop bombs--it�s up to you.
        > It is not required that all attendees bring beer, but taste buds are a must.
        > There will be one booth per homebrew club (just like last year).��Each club is responsible for their own jockey boxes and/or dispensing set-ups, signs, table, chairs, water, ice and shade tent.��It�s nice for attendees to know what beer you�re serving, so some tape and a sign is exceptionally helpful.��Please bring water for rinsing glasses, too.��Feel free to decorate your booth to suit your fancy.��There is a prize for best decorated booth.���Best� is decided by the �whim of a madman�.
        > SET-UP��STARTS AT 1:00PM:
        > If your club is setting up a booth, please come at 1:00 pm for set-up.��Drive in and one of the organizers will show you to the homebrew fest area and where to unload.��After you are unloade d, please move your vehicle to the parking area.��During the event (starting at) 2:00pm we want to keep a driveway open for a fire lane.��Safety first.
        > BEERSTOCK 5060-3 OFFICIALLY STARTS AT 2:00 PM, AUGUST 6TH, 2011:
        > -Sample other brew club member�s beer in a Beerstock taster glass & talk with brewers.
        > -Bring a bottle of your home brew or pour off your tap to sit down with a BJCP beer judge and discuss its merits and brewing techniques.
        > -Live Band - a band made up of brewers will perform for your entertainment
        > -Beer games, raffles and a beer quiz is available with prizes awarded

        > -BBQ will be available for purchase from Colin Lenfesty, as a main course - bring cash
        > -A new Beerstock t-shirt will be for sale
        > Please bring a side dish for the pot luck, such as, snacks, salad, vegetables or dessert. If you want to rest your haunches while you savor a brew, bring a chair.��You�ll want to bring things like sunscreen, bug spray, tent and warm cloths for the evening. This is a park setting, you you�ll need to think about battery powered lighting for your booth at night.��Bring any water or non-alcoholic beverages you�d like to drink.��Please, bring your own rinse water.��Don�t forget to bring a bottle of beer for the Great Beer Exchange and bring items for the Brewing Garage Sale.
        > This is entirely up to you and your club.��Bring as many or as few as you desire.��Last year since GEBL had so many members who wanted to bring beer, they rang a bell every few hours announcing that they are changing their taps over to new beers.����
        > Each attendee must be a Washington homebrew club member.��Each club member may bring one guest.
        > All attendees must be, at least, 21 years old.

        > SIGN-IN:
        > At the entrance will be a sign-in booth.��You�ll need to sign a short waiver stating your club affiliation and that you are at least 21 years of age (bring yer ID).��The waivers will be placed in a fermenter and used for the raffle later in the evening.��You�ll also receive a name tag and your taster glass filled with homebrew.��We�ll collect bottles for the Great Beer Exchange at the sign-in desk.
        > $$$:
        > To keep this legal, Beerstock 5060-3��is an invitation only event that is sponsored by Washington homebrew clubs.��The first year we asked for a set amount from each club but found this not entirely fair due to the variable numbers of attendees from each club.��This year we are asking each club to collect $10.00 per person.��Your club�s Beerstock representative will collect money from members.
        > Prior to the event each club�s Beerstock Representative can mail checks made out to:��Alison Sheafor-Joy, 3410 Stanwood Bryant Rd. Arlington, WA��98223.��
        > Please write �Beerstock 5060-3� in the subject and inc lude the name of your brew club with a contact address.��Even though it adds confusion, we fully understand that there are always members that are on the �maybe� list.��When they check-in, we will ask them to pay their Club Rep rather than paying us.��Please try to organize this, as much as possible, ahead of time.
        > What will your donation get you?��We are excited to announce that we will once again have glass taster glasses with the Beerstock 5060 logo provided to all who attend!��At the suggestion of last year�s attendees, we are going to rent extra porta-potties. You�ll have lots of chances to win beer related prizes and swag.��The main course, glasses, printing, plates, silverware, judges gifts, breakfast, etc. are all covered by the money your club sponsors.��Last year we were happy to announce that we just barely broke even, and that is the goal this year.��Any extra money will be donated to a local charitable organization or the following year�s Beerstock 5060 event.
        > WEATHER:
        > August is usually warm and sunny so bring sunscreen, but remember to bring warm cloths for the evening.��There will be no bonfire at this event.
        > BAND:
        > The band will entertain us between announcements and samplings.��They are kind enough to let us use their PA system for announcements.
        > Have one of your beers evaluated by two quality beer judges.��To retain an air of camaraderie this is not a competition but rather, it is a chance to learn about your beer.��We will have BJCP judges that are highly skilled in their ability to judge beer who are also happy to talk with each brewer in depth about their beer and brewing methods.��This can be both a discussion about brewing beers to-style and more importantly, about making your tasty beer even more won derful than it already is.��Another option is to bring a bottle of a �problem beer� that could use some sage advice.
        > You may either pour off your tap at Beerstock or bring a bottle of your beer for the judging.
        > This is one of the new events designed to help you meet brewers from other clubs.��It was a great success last year.��Bring a bottle of your home brew or a favorite commercial beer and we�ll pair you up with a brewer from another club.��You�ll exchange bottles and tell each other about your beer and brewing method.��Anyone showing up with Bud Light will be automatically disqualified.��ha ha
