[color=rgb(0,0,0);][font="Calibri;"]Starting to get the word out on the 16[/color]th[/font] Annual Domras Cup Mead Competition. Hope things are well with you and yours during this holiday season. Our 16th straight meading on “the Saturday before the Superbowl” is close at hand.  Please pass this on to your fellow club members.[color=rgb(0,0,0);][font="Calibri;"]The Savannah Brewers League will once again be sponsoring the Domras Cup Mead Competition. [/color][/font][color=rgb(0,0,0);][font="Symbol;"]·[/color] [/font][color=rgb(0,0,0);][font="Calibri;"]Competition Date: Saturday, February 1, 2014. [/color][/font][color=rgb(0,0,0);][font="Symbol;"]·[/color] [/font][color=rgb(0,0,0);][font="Calibri;"]Entry window: January 1, 2014 to January 23, 2014. [/color][/font][color=rgb(0,0,0);][font="Calibri;"]Why enter?[/color][/font][color=rgb(0,0,0);][font="Calibri;"]The cost is just $6 per entry. Any size bottle is acceptable (meads will be served “blind” by our experienced stewards). We know your mead is a precious thing. You can send any number of bottles you want, but we do recommend a minimum[/color] of one 750ml, two of anything smaller, and two if carbonated to ensure a fresh bottle for the BOS round. Ribbons and lots of great prizes from the Savannah Bee Company (can you say 100 lbs of regional honey!), Redstone Meadery products, and Savannah Homebrew Shop will be provided to winners.[/font][color=rgb(0,0,0);][font="Calibri;"]Why join us?[/color][/font][color=rgb(0,0,0);][font="Calibri;"]We can use certified judges and mead aficionados for judging and stewarding. We have a dozen local certified mead judges, but always need help. Each volunteer will get an etched Domras wine tasting glass and look for some of our new SBL “crimp-less” bottle openers to be available as well. Drawings for a door prize or two will be in order. Bagels, etc. will be available before we start and snacks in between. Immediately following judging, we hold our epic post-party and oyster roast that is a time not to be missed, so if interested in helping to judge or steward, please sign up on the registration page and come join us. We generally try to finish in one round though a few folks may have to do two small rounds. BOS should start by early afternoon.[/color][/font][color=rgb(0,0,0);][font="Calibri;"]At this point we don’t have plans for drop-off locations (except locally) where club members pick up the entries. If entries are registered and paid for and at proper condition, however, we can accept the entries the morning of the competition if someone is planning to come judge from an area. We’ll leave that up to each club. Just let us know in advance about any special arrangements needed.[/color][/font][color=rgb(0,0,0);][font="Calibri;"]For more information please visit the SBL website at [/color][/font][font="Calibri;"][color=rgb(0,0,255);]https://www.savannahbrewers.com/domrascup.php[/color][/font][font="Calibri;"] . The direct link to Domras Cup on-line registration page is [/font][color=rgb(0,0,255);]https://domras.homebrewcomp.com[/color][color=rgb(0,0,0);][font="Calibri;"]Cheers![/color][/font][color=rgb(0,0,0);][font="Calibri;"]Chris Stovall[/color][/font][color=rgb(0,0,0);][font="Calibri;"]Domras Cup Judge Director[/color][/font]

FYI, the entry window is now open (I was sure I would forget if I waited til midnight on the 1st).

 

As an added announcement, Michael Fairbrother of Moonlight Meadery will be in attendance at this year's event as our Special Guest.  This should be a great time.
