Volunteers are needed to assist with all aspects of the competition, and can enjoy some cider benefits. It's Cider time!
We need volunteers to pour at the Cider Sensory Training Day, Cider Judging Day, and Grand Tastings coming up at the Mendicono County Fair & Apple Show in Boonville. Our goal is to introduce high quality ciders of different styles to the world, and if you'd like to be a part of that we would love to have you.
Cider Sensory Training Day
Monday, August 28th, 2017 - 9am to 5pm
Space is limited, so this event is RSVP only. However, because volunteers will be needed to pour cider for the judges in training, you'll be able to take in and take part in most of this informative seminar.
Cider Judging Day
Tuesday, August 29th, 2017 - 9am to 5pm
Following the cider sensory training, the entries will be evaluated by panels of judges. Volunteers will be needed to pour cider for the blind tastings.
