We have to say a massive thanks to our own Brad, and his on-the-rise Left Barrel Brewing, for adding to the already impressive prize pool for the Winter Competition.
With just over two weeks till judging, don’t leave it too late to get your entries into the Competition Web Portal. Really, you want to win this one…
We are not far from holding this year’s AGM, at which all committee positions are declared vacant. To continue to thrive and offer good value to our members, the club relies on an active, motivated committee. If you have a bit of room in your life and think you have something to offer the club, then you are encouraged to nominate for a position. Please have a read of the linked document below to get an idea of what the various roles entail. The committee meets about six times a year on average (always involving beer and food!) with the remainder of discussion happening via email.
Whilst in the past we have run with the main officers’ roles and three or four general positions, this year we are moving to more defined roles for all committee members, with the aim to more evenly distribute the load across the committee.
If you would like to nominate for a position, please email the club to let us know. If you can’t make it to the AGM, and wish to stand for a position, that’s no problem at all.
Note that to vote at the AGM, you must be a financial member of the club. Our membership period coincides with the financial year, which means that renewals are due pretty much now. Please head over to the Join SABC page, where you can renew and pay via PayPal or bank transfer. The fees are unchanged from last year.

The Winter Competition web portal is now open for business. You can check it out here.
If you registered on the site for the last competition then all your details should still be there, but if this is your first time using the portal then you will need to sign up. As this competition is open judging, we do not need you to register as a judge, but we will need a few stewards, so if you are keen (and don’t want to judge), then please indicate this on you profile.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any difficulties with the portal.
