Check this out! A church in Sandy, UTAH is hosting a sanctioned competition! Registration is available online. This is sure to be an awesome event. It's linked up to their Oktoberfest.

Nice, I'd heard through my club (ZZ Hops) that they were considering holding a comp. Looks like it's a go. It'll be cool to have another BJCP comp in the state even if it isn't open to all styles. That's probably a good thing though, because limiting styles and the $20 entry fee might help keep the entries down a bit. I've helped with the Beehive Brewoff and logistically it's a pretty big undertaking (last year they had about 600 entries). Numbers like that could be a bit overwhelming to a first time organizer.

OT

How big is that club? Biggest in Utah by a fair margin I'm guessing?

Is it closed to new members (ones who share, even)?

I don't know that if it's the biggest...I think we're probably in the 30-50 member range but not everyone shows up to every meeting. It's a great group though.

It's open to pretty much anyone. You don't have to share, but I'd recommend it. It's a great way to get objective feedback.

We used to be really focused on the AHA's Club-only Competitions, but now that the AHA has done away with them, we're going to be changing things up a bit.

If you're interested, there's some info including contact info on our website, http://www.zzhops.org/p/join-us.html?m=0
