Hey there homebrewtalkers - the GIPC is back for another year - hope you can all be involved - particularly those of you who have crawled with us before!

For those of you who have not been a part of it before the short version of what goes on is this:
The most basic information you need to know is that the GIPC is free to participate in, open to anyone wherever they live in the world, and that through your participation you will meet [online at least] some most excellent people.

The plan goes like this – on Saturday May 30th 2009, people all around the world will go bar/pub crawling as best they can. In 2007 we had 143 venues in 66 cities in 16 countries on all 7 terrestrial continents participating! In 2008 we had 7 CONTINENTS – 12 COUNTRIES – 49 CITIES – 152 VENUES

You might want to crawl with your normal drunken mates or use this as opportunity to meet people from online brewing forums in your area etc. Some places even use the opportunity to raise funds for local charities.

So what do you do if you want to be more involved?

Well first of all tell us the name of city & country you are crawling in – then when you work out what bars/pubs/houses/gutters you will be in tell us that too!

The easiest way to tell us is by mailing us at [email protected]
Or you can check out the facebook page:

Hi everyone – there’s a new pub crawl update out today – check it out at the usual places – or mail us at [email protected] to get a copy. In short though – we have welcomed England, Germany, Scotland, South Africa to the crawl this week. T-shirt preparations are well under way. If you want your part of the crawl included on the shirt you will need to let us know by Sunday [4th May].

Preparations for the almanac [our free souvenir booklet which we distribute to crawlers] are also underway – this relies heavily on people around the world contributing photos, pictures of where they will crawling, descriptions of past crawls, pictures of haughty flagons – hell pretty much anything at all – if you’re planning to crawl please help us out with this!

cheers

Just a quick note to let people know that there has been a strong response from South Africa in the last 48 hours [making them the crawlingest country in the world] and taking us to 66 venues in 27 cities in 10 countries crawling on Saturday 30th.

Time is running out [you have till this Sunday] to let us know where you will be drinking if you want to appear on the t-shirts!

As ever feel free to ask questions!
Cheers
Dave
