The 2013 summer picnic will be held at Bryan Halverson's house. The Non-BJCP competition committee has put together the rules/guidelines for this years event:
"NO STYLE" Rackers Picnic Competition.
For our Summer Picnic we will be doing a friendly competition involving one entry per Rackers member and it can be for any Wine, Mead, Beer or Sake style. What ever you think will be the best. ... You will be able to fill out a simple entry form with your name and the name of the entered Beer/Wine/Mead/Sake.
It will be a "WINNER TAKES ALL" type of event. Whatever beverage has the most votes will win.
Poker chips will be used for votes. Each person that attends the picnic (21 years or older) will be given two chips to place into a box/container with the Name of the beverage that they like the best. Each attendie is requested to vote for TWO (2) of their favorites. (Please do not put both chips into one container.)
Remember, there will be quite a few sampling these so factor that into your packaging.
After the picnic the winner will be deteremined and a prize/trophy will be awarded. (A wandering trophy was suggested.)
