ok, TBU's 2 sacks of organic wheat finally came in today and I am waiting to hear back from him regarding pick up. There is one bag of grain that I picked up for Arcticz1 yesterday. He's up in WI so his daughter will pick it up when she comes to Chicago in a couple of weeks.

This officially closes out Group Buy in Chicago #6. Thanks everyone for participating. And special thanks to ghoti for his extremely helpful database that made this rather large buy much more manageable. I think we ordered a total of 185 sacks of grain and 33 pounds of hops. The next grain group buy that I run will be in March/April 2013. By that time most of us will be needing more glorious grain. Happy brewing!

the sources that Neopol and I have secured only sell hops. The hops group buy will be a true hops buy, i.e. no grain, chemicals, etc.

I'm assuming it's me your talking about when you speak of the mash paddles. I made one for ghoti and Bill. I would happily make a some to give away at a competition for group buy folks. It's a hobby of mine and I really like to do it, I don't charge for my paddles, more like trade, or give away. In this case I could surely donate two or three paddles!

Maybe a couple of group buyers (anyone that is willing to commit to a time that works for you) to pick up at a specific time at which the judging would occur. Or something like that. I think it would be fun. You could either come up with a winner(s) and/or just decide to add a description of the various hb's to the thread.

I would think maybe a best in show style competition would be the best from art. Yes I did get your PM I forgot about it, I'll PM you back sometime tonight about your idea.
