Finally, a big thank you to everyone for your support for the 2018 executive of CAMRA Victoria. As your Communications Director, it’s my responsibility to construct your monthly newsletters and email updates. As such, I’m always on the lookout for good content to include in the mailers.
I invite any and all members the opportunity to submit content they’d like to see in a future newsletter. If you’ve got a craft beer story to tell, have visited a brewery or breweries on a trip, and(or) got some pictures you’d like share amongst the members, shoot me an email here (mailto:communications@camra.ca) and I’d be more than happy to publish it in an upcoming newsletter. Of course, you’d get full credit for the article, and it gives us the opportunity to open up the newsletter to everyone and make it more inclusive.
That’s all for now. Cheers everyone! www.facebook.com/CAMRA.Victoria?fref=ts Facebook (www.facebook.com/CAMRA.Victoria?fref=ts) http://www.twitter.com/camravictoria Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/camravictoria) CAMRA.ca Website (CAMRA.ca)

** Reminder….. ———————————————————— Hey CAMRA Members and Craft Beer Enthusiasts,
Just want to pass along a few important updates regarding events and news for the coming days and weeks.
Firstly, a reminder that next Tuesday, January 23rd is the Annual AGM for the Victoria Branch of the Campaign For Real Ale British Columbia, inside the Buckerfield Room at Swan’s. The meeting will commence promptly at 7:30pm, so please arrange to be there well in advance of that time if at all possible.
As this is our most important meeting of the year, we are hoping for a great turnout from members in good standing, (those who’s membership to the Victoria Branch has been paid and has not yet expired prior to January 23rd 2018.) Please remember that membership is now on a ‘rolling 12-month’ cycle – expiry date of your membership should be clearly indicated on your membership card. If it says for ‘Calendar year 2017,’ that membership has now expired. You must renew anytime between now or before the AGM – please go to CAMRA Victoria website (www.camra.ca) and follow the online link to join or renew. You can also join or renew shortly before the AGM as the Buckerfield room will be open starting at 7pm. We will have a renewals and sign-up process on site, as well as a sign in sheet for current members, so please bring your membership cards with you.
Elections for the 2018 CAMRA Victoria Branch executive will take place at the AGM, Nominations are being accepted for all positions, (President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, Membership Director, Communications Director, Marketing/Merchandise Director and Events/Programs Director.) These are the only positions nominations are being sought for, as they are the key roles that need to be filled to ensure a smooth and efficient management for CAMRA Victoria. If you know of a member in good standing, (as mentioned above,) or feel you would be a good fit for any of the above roles, please submit you nominations to carol.and.john.rowling@gmail.com before 5pm on January 21st 2018.
For more in depth information, please visit the website.

Secondly, as many of you know, we pay on average 47% of the cost of beer in government tax. This escalating tax will continue to grow and grow, unless we speak up and tell the government to stop this continued escalation.
If you want your voice heard, if you want a say on this all important matter, please visit axethebeertax.ca (axethebeertax.ca/) and sign the petition. Let’s tell the Finance Minister and our local MPs to axe this tax right now!
———————————————————————–
Finally, we’re gearing up towards our big February event out in Sooke.
With the recent opening of Sooke Brewing Company and Bad Dog Brewing Company, plus the continued success of Sooke Oceanside Brewery, we’ve decided to create the ‘CAMRA Sooke Beer Run.’ The big event will happen Sunday, February 18th, and will stop at all three breweries, with transportation once again being provided by the excellent folks at West Coast Brewery Tours. Victoria Beer Week will be doing pretty much the same tour during the event in March, so this is in essence a test run of sorts.
Departure Time and Location are still to be determined, but if you wish to secure a spot on the bus, please visit this link (www.camra.ca/feb1818_camrasookebeerrun/) to sign the reservation form. There will be a maximum of 21 attendees.
Cost is also still to be determined, (probably $25-$30,) but it will include return transportation on the bus, plus tastings at each stop. Any additional purchases are the responsibility of the member. Please bring a bag plus a growler or two to get your fill of beers and any merchandise which are harder to find in town.
Stay tuned to the Facebook page plus email for further info once it becomes available.
Hope to See You All There. www.facebook.com/CAMRA.Victoria?fref=ts Facebook (www.facebook.com/CAMRA.Victoria?fref=ts) http://www.twitter.com/camravictoria Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/camravictoria) CAMRA.ca Website (CAMRA.ca)
