No one is saying they aren't a great "forum that many homebrewers use to further their hobby"... all people are saying is its a total sham for them to win "club of the year". And really? These folks are that hard up for some sort of an award that they have to game the system so they can have a " yeaay, we won club of the year" logo on the website??

Again, bang up job guys. Congrats.
That's fine and a valid argument. I was just find it hilarious that someone thinks bylaws and what-not are required for a club. If your club is all uppity like that, then it's probably not the club for me. Everyone's different, that's all I was trying to get at.

Wow, didn't realize having bylaws made a club all uppity. I guess I'm seriously going to have to rethink my club. Maybe not, I probably will bring it up at the next meeting though. Hey guys, it has been brought to my attention that we are all uppity. Why would we be like that?!?!?

At CHUG we define uppity!

The more I think about it , with the BN winning, I just feel home brewing and the AHA is going through growing pains. when I first started brewing, I did not know very many people at all who brewed, but now half the people on my block brew. I love it! but also with a advent of social media and the what not the definitions of "culb" have changed.

Personal I don't compete much, and when I do my beers don't do so well. I get the comment "This is maybe closer to such and style but its a great beer" a mostly. But from what I see and hear the it seems that for a lot of comps are a bit overwhelmed and the quality of the judging can be questionable. I think this is a much more important thing to start looking at in the future.

Haha...I can tell my thoughts aren't being conveyed very well on these here interwebs. It was the whole laundry list of "this defines a club" that I found amusing - I'm just offering a counter-viewpoint.

I think that list is missing our 5th by-law:
Quote:
Thou shalt be uppity.

What's really classy about the CHUG bylaws is the ring at the bottom of the page where someone rested their glass/can/bottle. It shows that, when it comes to beer, they mean business!

I think that was from our Emperor's (Carnevoodoo) pint he chugged in 0.25seconds...Nautical nut brown from Ale smith I think it was.

Come to think of it there is the one by law that is not on that, if you can chug faster than the emperor you become emperor,but i guess thats just and unwritten law.

We know it'll never happen, so we didn't really need to write it down

My club allowed me to take home a silver in the second round of the Nationals in 2009.
Where can I sign up for this club? I want to be a member of your club.
