We also lost long-time Boreal member Jim Rack in September of 2021.  Jim also had a long fight with cancer.  He did not want a public gathering.  Jim did a lot of beer kegging though, and he donated his equipment to the club so that we could raffle/auction all the components of his kegging equipment.  We will be setting up a February 2023 meeting and will have Jim’s equipment there.

We will miss the friendship, creativity and humor of both of these brewers.
