Hey all! I haven't been around much lately and am finally back! Since the last time I posted, carbidetoolguy and myself were talkin about getting sponsorship or help from other clubs and possibly starting a satellite club in this area.
Palmetto State Brewers in Columbia said they wouldn't start a satellite club, but they suggested that if we join them they would help us somewhat and that we could have our own local meetings. That's certainly a possibility.
I've been thinking though, that if we have enough interest, and I think we do, we could start our own Homebrew club here, get some help from the AHA and start small and grow. It might take a while but I think there is a growing interest in this area not only in Homebrew but Craft brew as well. We could start meeting somewhere and just go from there and see what happens.
What do you guys think? Carbidetoolguy (AKA Jason) floated some good ideas about some things we could do. I have some myself and I'm sure as a group we could come up with some ways to kick this off.
How would you guys like to meet some time at someplace like the new Buffalo Wild Wings in Rock Hill or McHales or even Ft. Mill Tavern or anywhere and see what we can come up with.
