Next are the people that attend the festival, without you coming the event would not be worth doing so thank you to each and every one of you…………

I want to thank all of the lecturers for taking time out of their busy Schedules, they were excellent and I heard brilliant comments on your presentations, Tony Barnsley for his Water Treatment lecture, Mark from Grainfather for doing a brew off against the Braumeister, it will be interesting to get the results from Tony to share with you all. Ivor Johnstone for your two slots on building a brewery it gave the fesitval a great buzz…. Ron Pattinson for coming all the way from Holland to give a speech on Vintage brewing and also for signing Books, it was great to have you stay behind after to have a chat with all of the homebrewers and a one to one level as well….. staying to have a beer……..

We decided this year to look for help in catering and Andy Hooke found RJS Caterers, let me tell you now these are two of the nicest people, and their food is out of this world we have aready booked them for next year to do all of the catering. Big thanks Richard and Jody…………….

Not forgetting the band we Hired TOP SECRET, what can I say? Superb, and all that listened to them have asked me to get them back next year check them out on you tube and give them a call, you wont get a better bunch of lads that can play that good…

Lastly please have a beer for the whole committee for their hard work in organising everything and then coming a day early to set it all up, I believe they did a brilliant job….

Not forgetting the volunteers that also came and really chipped in to help set up and clear it all away, this shows you have passion for the festival and want it to work… which is great for all home brewers……

We did have a couple of hiccups but it is only our second annual event and we can learn from that and make it better for our future events….

I am sure this will need editing (usually done either by Andy or Ryan because of my bad spelling and grammer or they add things that i have forgotten)…
