Happy summer to all!  I trust that you are finding time to enjoy the beautiful weather we are finally having, after a rather cool wet Spring.  In spite of that, I was just looking on the WSU extension page at the Growing Degree Days for this year in Eastern Washington, and it looks like 2017 is slightly ahead of an average year so far.  So, with the beginning of grape harvest not far off, I’d like to remind everyone that our club can only exist through the efforts of our members and volunteers.  Harvest and Crush time always requires help for activities from driving to Eastern Washington to pick up the grapes, to assistance at the crush (crush masters, weigh masters, site preparation and clean up).  Before all that though, we are requesting help to get our club equipment cleaned and in good working order (Aug 20 at 9:30AM at Snoqualmie Ridge Storage facility).  Please consider volunteering for this important event, especially if you are purchasing grapes.  It’s a great way to learn more about this fantastic hobby/vocation.

Also, I’d like to remind you that we have a Facebook page (Boeing Employees Wine and Beermakers Club) and, of course, this web page.  These are two good resources to help you stay abreast of upcoming activities, meetings and educational opportunities for both Beer and Wine makers.  For example, Steve Foisie’s Introduction to Winemaking class, which is tentatively planned to start in late August.  Stay tuned.

Cheers,
