Today I want to acknowledge a wonderful gift the Austin Scotch Lovers received. Dan Crowell, a brand ambassador for Glenmorangie and Ardbeg, arranged for Glenmorangie and Ardbeg to pay our Meet Up fees for one year! I am so grateful to him and them, and I am writing today in celebration of that! Though I now consider them a sponsor of our group, in no way are we required to skew our opinions toward love of them, though I must admit they are two great distilleries in my opinion! I am looking forward to expanding our group in so many ways in 2015 and this is a great help toward that goal! Anyone may contribute to the Austin Scotch Lovers through a button on our meet up page. Meet up does take a percentage of this to cover costs of administering it, but the convenience is nice. Since I pay for the dues and fees myself, you are also free to just donate money to the group directly to me. Often I have a Glenfiddich tin with me for this purpose. I don’t want to mention this subject too much as I want the Austin Scotch Lovers be a free group, but I do want people to know that there are some fees involved in being able to have these websites, so if you feel moved to help, I welcome it! If you want to become a sponsor of the group, let me know about that as well! Soon I will be writing about the upcoming activities the group has planned. I am waiting to hear back from some places and people to get a few more events confirmed! I look forward to meeting up with you and sharing a dram!
