Changes to Competition Calendar

Please check out the changes to the 2015 Competition Calendar. We’re tweaking things a bit so that the styles in our competition include all the styles that people like to brew. Trevor did some data analysis on the non-theme beers brought to meetings to determine if any styles were frequently brewed but not part of our competition. Turns out, there were!
