October 2018 TRASH Meeting - Oktoberfest Picnic - Daren's House

Saturday, October 20th, 2018 at 4pm - 9pm

Location: 1015 Chaulk Hill Drive, Moon Twp, PA, 15108

Our October meeting will be a mashup of a couple of annual events:  Our club picnic and our Oktoberfest party.  This will be an Octoberfest Picnic!

Daren's House.  1015 Chaulk Hill Drive, Moon Twp, PA, 15108

Saturday, October 20, from 4 pm to 9 pm.  Note that the Octoberfest Picnic is spouse-friendly, but not kid-friendly.    Please RSVP by October 13.

Potluck.  Bring your favorite German-themed dish.  (Please don't everyone bring biercheese and pretzels).  We'll figure out a "sign-up sheet" as the evernt gets closer.

Among the festivities...
*TRASHy Award.  We'll have a mini-competition (People's Choice) to award the TRASHy.  The TRASHy has long been a coveted award, formerly awarded to the best kegged beer at the picnic.  This year, we're also adding in a gift basket from Insurrection Brewing (an unclaimed prize from the competition). To compete for the TRASHy, bring enough of your best beer for 30-40 people to sample and vote on.  A keg or a couple growlers would be sufficient.  German Beer is preferred, in the spirit of the season, but bring any beer you like!  
*Tech Talk from Daren on Brewery Design.  Daren's recently been through another evolution of his brewery, and his tech talk will center around his design process and the evolution of his brewing.  If you're thinking deep thoughts about upgrading some equipment, this would be a good talk to attend.
*Raffle.  We have a number of unclaimed (and thus forfeit) competition prizes, including growler fills, gift cards, T-shirts and the like.  We're raffling them off.  $1/ticket or $5/6 tickets.   
*Officer Nominations.  October is when we take nominations for the offices opening up.  President and Treasurer are opening up, and we'll be taking nominations for the November election.

This comment is not spam...for anyone coming to the party at my place, I am setting up my jockey box in my garage for keg serving. I have 2 taps open still if someone wants to bring a keg. I can also plug in a freezer but you need to bring co2 and a picnic tap. My wife (Erica) is on wine duty for any significant others that don't like beer but I'm hoping Timur brings a keg of mead/cider :) Please RSVP so we can get a headcount and signup for potluck so we know what people are brining. I'm getting brats/buns.
