Please reply to this email at your soonest possible convenience. A reply by Saturday Feb 25th will be much appreciated.



I think we are ok on basic staff volunteers, but we can accept any help and find a job for anyone who volunteers. I think as many of us as can should plan to be involved in the Beer delivery and sorting, Set up, and Tear down. I can pick up beers from any of the RTP locations and have a RAV-4 so I can fit a decent amount.

James- Tom Fransen volunteered to be the Assistant Cellar Master.
