2017 SODZ Christmas Party

by Administrator

When

Monday, December 11th 2017
7:00 pm

Where

Lineage Brewing Company
2971 N High St
Columbus, OH 43202

What

There is no formal agenda. This meeting is a potluck where the club provides the main course and members provide a side or desert. Because the club is providing the main course this meeting is limited to those members in good standing and their +1.

Lineage, is closed to the public on Mondays, they’ll be open just for the club event.

Please remember:

  1. Everyone must be 21, no exceptions.
  2. Drinking and driving is a serious and deadly felony. Make appropriate travel arrangements.

Dirty Santa

Dirty Santa is a gift exchange where you bring a large format (750ml or 22oz bomber) bottle of commercial beer and put it inside a gift bag. One person starts by taking a bag off the table that’s not theirs and this continues until everyone has a gift. Basically it’s a white elephant gift exchange but instead of gifting junk you are giving delicious craft beer. The only requirements for this are that you buy a quality beer and bring it concealed in a gift bag.

Club Competition

Christmas/Winter Speciality (21B), Belgian Specialty (16E), Wood Aged (22C), Speciality (23, convince us it’s Christmas).

They are not normally open on Mondays, so we’ll have the place to ourselves, but that does mean the full kitchen will not be available.

Summer Picnic 2017

by Administrator

Summer Picnic time!

Who is Invited?

Anyone who is a paid member and their immediate family (Significant other Spouse and children).

When

Saturday, July 22nd 12:00 PM – 2:30 PM – Gun Range open for SODZ members
Saturday, July 22nd 2:30 PM Sunday July 23rd 1:00 PM – Picnic, etc.

If you plan to stay over night be sure you bring a tent or are ok with sleeping in your car.

Where

Central Ohio Anglers and Hunters Club
9593 Roberts Rd
West Jefferson, OH 43162

Make sure you approach from Olmstead Road, to the Southwest of the club, not from Plain City-Georgesville Road. If you come the wrong way, you WILL NOT be able to get across the Little Darby Creek.

What to Bring

If you want to shoot, it’s BYOGun, there are no rentals. The club has a 30- yard pistol range, and a 100-yard rifle range. The ranges will be open for a few hours starting at noon, but that will only be for non-drinking members, until 2:30 when they will close and we can start the party. THERE WILL BE NO DRINKING AND SHOOTING AT THE SAME TIME.

Bring your beer, of course, we will have Jockey Boxes, so you can bring kegs, or bottles in coolers, or whatever you want.

As for food, the picnic is a pot luck. The club will provide a main course (and plates, cutlery, napkins, etc.), you will provide a side/desert and any beer you want to share. The location has a copious amounts of space to camp and hang out, a large building to escape the elements, and fire pits for the evening. It’s suggested that you bring any folding chairs, pop up shelters, bug spray, sun tan lotion, plenty of homebrew to share and anything else you require if you are a person who enjoys to sit outside, not on the ground and not in direct sun. If you choose to stay the night there will be a bonfire and much more socializing. In the morning we will do some cleanup and head home.

If you have lawn games, or outdoor activities, bring those too. There’s always demand for cornhole, but the club doesn’t own a set of boards, so it’s appreciated when members bring them to the picnic.

Iron Kettle Beers

Those who brewed beer at Iron Kettle will be bringing their beer to share and be judged. If you were at Iron Kettle an can’t make it then you will need to make arrangements to have someone else bring your beer.

Other

I can’t stress this enough but if you even think you might be staying the night bring a tent or have the expectation that you will be sleeping in your car.
