Default 21st annual Charlie Orr Memorial Chicago Cup Competition

This is the email I got:

In only a few weeks the Brewers of South Suburbia will be holding their 21st annual Charlie Orr Memorial Chicago Cup Competition.
This is an AHA/BJCP sanctioned competition that is also a qualifier for the 2012 Midwest Homebrewer of the Year.

We are expecting a record number of entries this year and we need qualified beer judges and stewards to make this a big success.

We have out-grown our former location, the Maple Tree Inn, and the competition has moved to Giovan's Restaurant and Pizzeria in Crest Hill, IL.
Breakfast goodies and lunch will be provided.
There will be an opportunity for dinner (self-paid) with an awards ceremony following the competition.
(Dinner at 6PM, Awards announced at 7PM.)

Saturday, March 24, 2012, 8:30 AM.

Giovan's Restaurant & Pizzeria
1804 North Larkin Ave. (North of the intersection of Larkin and Route 30)
Crest Hill, IL 60403

A block of rooms has been reserved at the nearby Holiday Inn Express under the name of "Brewers of South Suburbia (BOSS)" if you care to stay the night (at your own expense).
(Please make any reservations by 3/10/12.)

More information about the competition is available on the BOSS website:

If you are interested in judging or stewarding for the competition please register online:

Looking forward to seeing all of you in a few weeks.

Mark Westmeyer
Judge Director

They were announced at the awards dinner last night but they said they would be posted online on Sunday or Monday. The link to the website is go all the way to the bottom of the page to the link for results.

If I get an email with results, I'll post it here.

One of our club members took first in the fruit beer category!
