Greg Noonan Memorial Competition Entry Window closes 4/15

Hi MontreAler friends,

Sorry for the late notice but it took a little bit to work out logistics for making sure entries from MontreAlers could be picked up at the Dunham joint meeting but we now have confirmed that folks from the Mashers can do this.

So we hope that you will consider entering the 2023 Greg Noonan Memorial Homebrew Competition but if you wish to please make sure to go online ASAP to and add your entries into the system NOW (you can pay later) as the entry deadline closes at the end of the day on 4/15 and we already have 155 entries towards our 200 entry limit.

If you do enter please coordinate with Norm Cyr and email so we can make sure your entries are collected at Dunham on 4/29 and processed at our entry intake event on 4/30.

Further details about the competition and prizes are below.

Also we are still in need of judges & stewardsso head to and register today!

This is awesome Jay! Thanks for helping us participating in your competition. I’ve signed up for a few bottles.

Hello, I plan on bringing bottles to the AGM tomorrow. Do I just pack them up as if I were to ship?

I’ll bring mine probably in a box with some bubble wrap. As long as it is simple for them to carry the bottles back, I think it’ll be ok.

My entries are marked received. Thanks for organizing the pick-up at Dunham. Good luck to everyone

Same as you! Marked as received so I suppose it went smoothly through the border.
