December Meeting/Party

FBV December Meeting Minutes
The FBV December meeting was held at Pete and Judy Flan's home.  They provided an excellent meal while members brought hors d'oeuvres and wine.  The meeting was shortened dramatically in the interest of food, wine and fellowship. 
Old Business:
    We had a report on our home wine making panel discussion that will be held at AB tech.  We have our "course" listed in the spring catalog.  Our organization will pay all the expenses, including coffee/beverages and supplies and we will get all the proceeds from student tuition.  Ten winemakers are needed to for the panel.  The class will meet from 9 am to 3 pm, on April 6th.
New Business:
    Tom Mincarelli reiterated his belief that the business meeting should be held first, followed by wine judging, and that followed by dinner.  Dinner should be last and optional.  We decided to table the meeting agenda until the January meeting.
Following the meeting we had a drawing for a subscription to Wine Maker Magazine. 

The Pete and Judy house was real festive
after supper we devoured the house
