Greetings, Members, Malters and soon-to-be-members!
The Willow Park Whisky Club (not an official title) had its first official meeting on the 5th of September, 2010. Though the Labor Day long weekend prevented several individuals from attending, a large handful came out to break a bottle on the proverbial maiden voyage. Thanks to all of those (like myself) who lacked the foresight to book an extended vacation at this time and were able to attend. 😉
What happens in Whisky Club stays in Whisky Club. Well…not really, but…suffice it to say…details will not be shared here for the masses. The long and short of it was this…
We met, laughed and lingered. A few glasses were shared from a selection of bottles while we discussed the direction that we would like to go from here. The decision was made to have one more session as a ‘meet-n’-greet’ as so many were away this time. Next meeting is Sunday, October 3rd at 7:00pm. This is when we will sort out a few more details.
A few who came out were surprised that this was an open membership deal. I think the assumption was that it was an invite only club. Apologies if anything said here has led to that belief. In clarifying…
Next meeting is Sunday, October 3rd at 7:00pm.
Anyone reading here…feel free to join us, and if you have others interested…bring ’em along!
We will cap membership at a specified number, but until that number is reached, it is open to all. The only criteria…you have to enjoy whisky and want to meet people.
Finally…October 3rd will be something of an Islay night, based on early vote. I (Curt) will have returned from this land of peat and smoke only days prior. I’ve been asked to spill a little bit about the trip upon return. Should have some pics and maybe video to share. (Anyone care to do the powerpoint work?)
So…spread the word and round up your colleagues. What is whisky without friends?
Until next update…Slainte!
