We did this a lot in the Guam Homebrew Club. I definitely recommend it and its a great reason to be a part of a club.

Also, Annapolis Home Brew Shop stated that they would like to help sponsor the club so I asked about card carrying members being able to get discounts at the store as a membership benefit. They didn't say yes but said they were interested in the idea and were currently working on some incentive discount programs to implement in the near future. One of the clubs I was in was able to get a 10% discount for members at all local home brew shops so its worth asking all the area shops if they would do something like this.

If not, it can't hurt to inquire at MD Home Brew in Columbia. But I think if you explained to the Annapolis guys that the increased amount of $ spent overall mitigates any 10% discount

I think that's why we need to ask the shops after we have a roster of members and get an idea of how many members frequent each shop.

I have 5 beers (3 homebrews, 2 commercial brews) packed up and ready to go for tomorrow. I would like to bring more, but I have to try to put them in the office fridge tomorrow, since it isn't feasible for me to go home and get them before the meeting.

Superspy, if for some reason storing beer in my office fridge is frowned upon, do you think I could drop them off at your place sometime before the meeting officially begins so that we can get them chilled?

Dolemite brings up a good point. Another question to keep in mind is what do we call ourselves once we've picked a name? For example, I was in the Knights of the Brown Bottle Home Brew Club and we called ourselves the "knights." What do we call ourselves if we're the ABCDs? Imagine seeing this in a few months:

"Hey ABCDs, it's time to start brewing up those winter warmers if you want them to be ready for the holidays."

Now replace ABCDs with "Knights." The same goes for Mashtronauts, Foam Rangers, or any other homebrew club where the members use the name to identify and distinguish themselves among other clubs. Just some food for thought. Any other name ideas?

Either my wife or I should be home around 5pm. Give me a call if you need to stop by.
