FOSSILS executive committee meeting March 20th

The FOSSILS EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE met March 20th to plan the next meeting and discuss future club plans.

All fossils members are welcome to attend these meetings and provide input.

Normal meeting time is on Sunday evenings, but the second Sunday of April is Easter so we will be meeting on the Tuesday after Easter April 11th,  6:00 p.m. in the New Albanian Public House. During this time of change, please check the Facebook group, the website, and your emails for current information.
Saturdays have been somewhat problematic meeting at the New Albanian, so we are experimenting with other meeting sites, times and days to see which might work the best.

This month, we will have a beer tasting of Porter style beers. 
Next month we will have a beer tasting of either Maibock or Belgian style beers. 

Discussed options for having our annual summer party.  Suggestions for a location are welcomed from anyone! Need to get moving on this quickly to have plans in place.

Need to start planning a few Brew in's this year, for the summer picnic and December Christmas party.

Discussed possibilities for off-site special outings through the week or on Saturdays. Visits to breweries and pubs, festivals.
Your humble secretary, Ed N

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,
