SUNDAY fossils meeting

Don't forget, monthly FOSSILS meeting this Sunday, not Saturday, at 6:00 p.m. There will be a raffle, so bring something interesting to add to the raffle, and bring some cash so that you can enter the raffle!

There will be a tasting, where each member gets several samples of world class barleywine beers. Dennis Barry is in charge of this and will bring the beers for sampling.

The new Albanian will be closed on Sunday night so no food will be available, but you are welcome to bring your own if you wish.

Spread the word, and invite guests. Make sure your dues are paid for the year, and let's have some fun!

Please drink responsibly, and make sure you have a designated driver if you are not safe to drive.

March meeting, Sunday March 12th at 6pm

Welllll, I talked with Jeff last evening, and discussed issues concerning our next meeting date, and told him we could remain as is, move it to Tuesday, or move to Sunday. I totally left it up to him, as we're 'using' their place to meet.  He thinks Sunday is best, for now.  When football starts up again, we'll re-visit it, if their help is still an issue...  Soooo, our next meeting will be on SUNDAY March 12, at SIX PM (since some people are still working).  And for those who like to eat at the mtg, he said that it's fine to bring your own food from wherever.  And this is time change day as well.  
 Tx, your President,

February executive committee meeting

The FOSSILS EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE met Tuesday evening at the New Albanian Public House. Officers were all present.

Discussed monthly meeting location, due to difficulties holding a meeting at the current time and location. One of the difficulties is we meet once a month on a Saturday evening and reserving the entire Pub sometimes creates conflict. NABC has begun to have concerns with reserving the entire Pub for FOSSILS, due to having to exclude other customers. Our meetings have been large enough to fill the entire Pub area, so having other customers in our meeting sometimes creates noisy and chaotic meetings. Until this is resolved, it would be nearly impossible to invite guest speakers.
We are looking into the possibility of Sunday evenings again, or possibly meeting at other, more appropriate venues. Dennis Barry and Gary Page plan on meeting with NABC owners to see if a more workable solution can be found.

Executives seem to be happy with the frequent beer tastings and education, so those will continue.

Discussed having extracurricular activities occasionally throughout the week at local breweries.

Our March meeting will be March 11th at 7:00 p.m. at the New Albanian Public House.

All members are welcome at executive meetings if you want to chime in on any of these issues. 

Always! Drink responsibly, and that means  bringing someone with you who can drive you home safely.
Spread the word! FOSSILS is back.
