Owl Club: Mark Vespoli (Owl Club Owner) spoke to the Board about the rules that need to be followed for us to continue to meet at the Owl Club. Mark is very happy with the club meeting there, but we need to enforce some rules, so he clarified them for us:

1)    Only homebrewed competition beers can be brought to the meeting. 2)    Commercial labels must be removed from containers, or covered. 3)    No beer leaves the building – must be drank or dumped. 4)    All competition beers need to be checked in and left with the Cellarmaster. 5)    All containers must leave with the person who brought them. 6)    No serving alcohol to minors.
