Greetings Beer Judge!
I am writing to let you know that the Houston Foam Rangers would like to ask for your help with judging homebrew for the 2011 Dixie Cup.
The Dixie Cup is one of the nation’s oldest homebrewing competitions and is noted for its great mix of irreverent fun as well as its seriousness about beer. Although we have as much fun as possible at the Dixie Cup, the competition remains the most important aspect of the event and we take the judging very seriously. We would like to ask for your help in completing this serious task.
The Dixie Cup is one of the final Qualifying Events for The Masters Championship of Amateur Brewing and is the final competition in the series that determines the Lone Star Circuit Homebrewer of the Year, the Lone Star Circuit Homebrew Team of the Year, and the Lone Star Circuit Homebrew Club of the Year.
Our judging schedule is listed below. We have several great opportunities for you to judge and earn BJCP experience points. Depending on the number of entries we receive, not all of the sessions may be needed, so please keep an eye out for any update emails From October 9th to the 18th.
Please feel free to pass this email along to anyone who feel might interested in judging or stewarding during the Dixie Cup. All interest and skill levels are welcome!
For more information on the 2011 Dixie Cup, visit our web site - http://dixiecup.crunchyfrog.net/
If you have any questions please contact the Head Judge, Sean Lamb (that’s me!) via email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Foam Rangers look forward to seeing you at this year’s Dixie Cup!
I will be re-sending this message in a few weeks as a reminder.
