Just Registered last night! Looking forward to this competition. Any other HBTers entered? I'm surprised there hasn't been more talk on this thread

Awesome. I will be doing Stewarding for the event. Wish you all good luck. BURP has been around for 30 years, yea thats a long time and the long time members are really easy to talk to and willing to share. The club's monthly meetings are like mini brew and food fests.
