Sunshine Challenge 2019 Update
Filed under: General, Events
Posted by: admin @ 1:34 pm
Well folks, we are on a roll with the Sunshine Challenge for 2019!
Already we have booked a location, signed a contract, obtained a room block and started working on speakers and sponsors.
The theme this year is Homecoming! The sentiment being we are coming home, its the clubs 30th anniversary; its a time of reunion, celebration and looking back at all we have accomplished over the years. It’s an opportunity to reignite the passion of years past with our long time members and foster the club goals with newer members.  
Think back to your high school homecoming dances, proms and parties; your high school or college reunions.
The event agenda isn’t much different than past years - there will be Belgian (stinky cheese night), pub crawl and the awards banquet itself.
Re-theming these events to tie into the overall theme has been fun; The Pub Crawl is “Senior Skip Day” and the awards banquet will send you back to your homecoming dance or prom! Big hair do’s and powder blue tuxedos and all!
Alumni, Booster Club, Science Club, the Faculty - they’ll all be there!
As always, this event cannot be accomplished without support from our club members. Currently the committee includes the board of directors and a Sunshine Committee of 6 others. We invite any and all club members to get involved as there is still much to do in order to make this years event a success. 
Thank you all for your support!

Stouts and Stogies 2019
Filed under: General
Posted by: admin @ 5:53 pm

Come out to the Stout and Stogie event and enjoy great food, good times, your favorite stout, and if you smoke cigars, your favorite stogie or two.

Jim and Kathleen Gilson are hosting this event at their house in Altamonte Springs, Fl. The event is open to all CFHB members + one guest of a CFHB member.

What you should bring; a chair, the Gilson’s have some chairs but if you want to be sure you’ll have a place to sit bring one. Bring your favorite stout and a bottle or two to share if you like. We are also asking that attendees bring some type of a side dish to share, hot, cold, dessert dish or whatever. The club will be providing some type of grilled or baked or even possibly fried meat course.

What you should expect; wear sensible clothes and shoes and bring a coat. This is a backyard party so dress accordingly.
Bring a cooler with you if you like, no, we will not have ice on hand for you. Expect to have a good time with good food and good beer with like minded better beer drinkers. Typically, this event has a nice mix of long time and newer members. Be ready to be able to talk about the fine art of Zymurgy to your hearts content.

Parking: Park in the front yard. Be smart and don’t park in such a way that block others. If you park in a good spot and someone does block you from leaving when it is time to go, we will get that car moved. No parking on the sidewalk or roped off areas (the sidewalk or the ditch beside the sidewalk.

No dogs please unless you plan to have them beside you and on a leash the entire time you are at the event. A complimentary pooper scooper will be provided for you use, bring your own bags. 😊

Kathleen will be making her New England style clam chowder by popular request.

Thank you to all who came out last night for our Craft Christmas Party!
We had a great turn out of both old and new members and those who
couldn’t make it, know that you were missed.
Special thanks to JR Silva
for hosting another great year! We had some great food, fun and
camaraderie. Our Crazy Santa bottle exchange was again a howling
I’d also like to thank our sponsors Castle Church Brewing for their generous donation and Ocean Sun Brewing for their contribution as well.
