BOC Meets to discuss 2014 Games

posted May 7, 2014, 1:52 PM by Doug Dury

The Beer Olympics Committee was summoned to gather to begin preparations for the 2014 Beer Olympics. 

There was an attempted coup d'etat of the committee chairmanship, the situation was resolved swiftly and with out incident. 

The committee then entered into a discussion of The Games events.  The only passed resolution was to return quarters to a shotgun start rather than a relay.  Other discussion may be had on events but it is likely the events will remain the same as last year.  As every other year the relay needs some tweaking, a special council has been formed and a study has been commissioned to determine exactly what changes are needed. The  council will review the findings and present them to the Committee for further determination.  

Lastly an in depth analysis of potential dates was undertaken.  The comittee reviewed most every weekend from Memorial Day to Labor day and only a couple were found feasible.  The early date (in late june)  has been decided upon, with the only major concern being time for the host nation to prepare given the hose nation has major commitments in the weeks previous to the Games.  Member Nations will provide aid to ensure the preparations can be completed.

BOC Meets to plan 2010 event

posted Jun 1, 2010, 7:46 PM by Doug Dury

The BOC meet, with a reduced staff this year, to finally get preparation underway for the 2010 Beer Olympics.  With the event only 3 weeks away we figured it was time to do something.  There were no major changes this year so need for preparation has been light.
The beer has already been purchased through many of our very helpful friend and family so this year there will not be the need to purchase kegs the day of. As you can see in the website design our defacto "sponsor" is Old Milwaukee.  This is not because they gave us anything but, as a true sponsor would, but because all the beer served this year will be Old Milwaukee due to a sale price on their 12 packs and a mail in rebate.  This enabled us to purchase cans at a price cheaper than kegs, and we feel cans are much better for this event than kegs.                                                                                                               
Anyway the only thing the BOC really discussed was how to best utilize the donated "Drinko" board in this years games. No decision was officially made or documented.

This is a fun informational blog posting that was done last year but mostly holds true this year.  As all past participants know the more events you compete in and the more time goes by the more fun Beer Olympics gets.  However for those concerned about drinking too much this is a run down on how little beer you can drink if you want to and still compete.  Of course this method has never been put into practice but here is the break down in case you were interested.  Click here to read.
