Treasurer’s Report:  There is $758.42.  With Kim and Ralph joining, this will bring the total to $778.42.

Wine Competition:  Shari’s friend Janet Lafond from Billings, MT, drafted 4 posters for the club to review for a poster for the wine competition. 

  • We decided to merge the font/text from one poster to the background on another poster.
  • We will remove “national wine competition” and refer to it as “2011 Amateur Wine Competition”.
  • We will not list the number of judges.
  • We will keep the current categories for the wines.
  • Shari will send Gary the final version of the poster prior to the next meeting.
  • Susan will update the rules.  We would like the top of the rules page to be in bold letters in a different color. Other changes for the rules:
    • We want to make sure that entrants include a stamp, self-addressed envelope to get the results.
    • We want to note in the rules that the drop off at Eola Hills is 7/9/11 and 7/16/11. 
    • We want a hyperlink in the rules to the American Wine Society (AWS) 20-point scale.
    • We will only accept 750 ml. bottles.  We will not accept 375 ml. bottles.
    • There will be a first, second and third ribbons, and comments/evaluations from the judges.
    • Those that don’t get a ribbon one will get comments/evaluations from the judges. 
    • The grand prize, Best of Show, will have a ribbon and a rosette.
    • We will not provide certificates, prizes or awards.
