A few of us are trying to make it more than drinking 16+ beer styles in a given evening. Nothing wrong w/ that.
For us the normal monthy meetings are;
7-8pm - Sampling beer, cider & mead.
8-8:30pm - Club Business, discusion of local activities, competitions, next purchases (group buys to save shipping $$), club t-shirt orders, & etc.
8:30-11PM - Beer Drinking
Activities usually fall outside of the meeting. - Weekend Stuff...
