Sounds fun! Too bad I'll be camping that weekend, but it would have been nice to come and drink a beer and cook some grub. I've got a couple friends who want to learn how to brew, but they'll just have to deal with me teaching them on brew days
About your link though, to CHUG, how do we sign up? I assume it's a San Diego thing too? Our local QUAFF hasn't given me the time of day (even when I went to two of their meetups...was just completely ignored even when trying to talk to others, like I was an outsider), and I'm looking for a more personable and fun club where people actually talk to newcomers! Hah.
