President’s Report: December 2019

Hello FOAMers, and welcome to the wonderful Holiday season. We’re so glad to have shared this amazing year with all of you, and we’re looking forward to the year to come.

FOAM Christmas Party

Join us at Pippin’s Taproom for this year’s annual FOAM Christmas Party! It’s a potluck this year, so bring a side dish or confection to share, as well as any specialty holiday beers you’ve been saving for the occasion. The hootenanny kicks off at 7:30 p.m.

FOAM Officer Election Results

I am pleased to announce that the club has elected the following officers to serve in 2020:

President: Marion Gooding
VP Events: Solomon Torluemke
VP Communications: Desiree Knott
VP Membership: Valerie Grogan
VP Competitions: Gary Elliott
Treasurer: Travis Kirby

We will be scheduling our first officers’ meeting for January 18th, 7:30 p.m. at Pippin’s Taproom. This is where the FOAM officers get together to discuss meeting themes, events, and agenda for the year ahead. It’s typically pretty boring, but FOAM members are welcome to attend and (bring beer) observe.

The Tulsa Craft Beer Invitational executive committee met recently to discuss preliminary oversight and planning for our second festival in 2020. The committee reached a consensus agreement that 2020’s festival will take place June 13, and an effort will be made to coordinate with Tulsa Craft Beer Week organizers so that our event hopefully either kicks off or completes the larger TCBW schedule.

That’s all the news I have for now. Let’s raise a glass together to the holidays, and to another great year homebrewing.
