Thanks So Much for All the Toys Falcons

I just wanted to send a note out to thank you again for ALL the wonderful gifts you brought to the meeting today for our 9th Annual Toy Drive. I am overwhelmed each time by your generosity in bringing so much for the kids. Such a great selection of gifts for youth of all ages. I am humbled and so proud of our club. What wonderful hearts you all have. The Fire Department sends a big thank you to everyone. If you want to give more, you can drop off more gifts at any Fire Department. We will post pics on the Falcon Facebook page of the toy drop off!

2019 Doug King Memorial Homebrew Competition

DKM2019-sm.jpg



It's that time of year again when we fondly remember our compadre Doug King. Doug was a brewer's brewer - always there to lend a hand to the club or another brewer. He was also fond of experimentation and was well known for his crazy experiments (loafs of rye bread, potatoes, tortillas - all in the mash) and his love of lagers. He won the 1996 California State Fair for his Dougweiser.
