If less than half of those currently directly subscribed to the HBD sent in a mere $5.00, the HBD would be able to easily meet its annual expenses, with room to spare for next year.

Date: Wed, 14 Jul 2010 18:29:14 -0400 From: "Jeff Sanders" <jeff.sanders at dynamicshift.com> Subject: Barley Legal homebrew competition Proving once again that our members are more twisted than a bag of pretzels... The Wootown Brewers homebrewing club proudly announces its inaugural BJCP-sanctioned brewing competition, Barley Legal. Barley Legal is a BJCP-sanctioned competition open to homebrewers worldwide. The competition is based in the Mid-Atlantic United States (MD, DC, PA, DE, VA, and WV) and, for 2010, celebrates the tradition of German Oktoberfest. For the 2010 competition, we are accepting German styles only, but our definition of German-styles is very wide open, so be sure to check our list of eligible styles. Homebrewers are encouraged to whip out their Weizens, rock their Bocks off, or go straight to Helles. And yes, you can even with the competition with a Porter. Entries for the competition will be accepted from Saturday, September 11, 2010 to Saturday, September 25, 2010. Entry requirements are posted on our web site, as are drop-off and mail-in locations. We are currently seeking judges, stewards, and volunteers. Judging is open to all ranks of judges, from Novice to Grand Master. It is not required that you be a member of the BJCP, however, BJCP members will be given judging preference over non-members. The Mid-Atlantic region contains some of the most qualified and highly-ranked judges in the BJCP. We simply ask that you adhere to the BJCP's and Wootown's core principles while judging. The competition judging will be held on Saturday, October 2, 2010 at 9 a.m. at DuClaw Brewery in Abingdon, MD. You can register as a judge, steward, or volunteer, or find more information on our web site. Competition winners will receive prizes and awards donated from notable sponsors in the home brewing, craft brewing, and food and beverage industries worldwide. Results of the competition will be posted immediately after the votes have been tallied. Information on how to become a sponsor is also available on our web site. Downloads for the competition, including our eye-catching posters, press releases, and videos may be downloaded from this site. And if we haven't covered it, a F.A.Q. is posted to answer all your competition questions. Who will take home the coveted first-ever Mug O' Sausage? Sprechen Sie Deutsch? We hope so. Stay tuned more news and updates!
