Volunteers for Cheese of the Month Coordinator (Oct '13 to March '14) Needed

Here's the new sign up list for Cheese of the Month Coordinator. Duties include selecting the particular cheese or cheeses for the month, and starting the thread. No experience (or expertise) required. We're all here to help!

As of now...

fldhkybnva has October

Ridge has November

We still need to fill:





Any volunteers?

  1. I don't know if we want to repeat volunteers since they get to make the ultimate decision for COTM. But, if there is an open month after others have had a chance to volunteer, I'm happy to take it. Excited to see COTM continue - even though I only comment sporadically, I usually do purchase the cheese and follow along with others' comments/experiences.

      Wasn't meaning to step on any toes here. I'll step aside.

      1. re: Phoebe

        I meant me!! I volunteered already for cheese of the month coordinator so I didn't want to jump in and call another month before others who might want have a cheese they are itching to discuss had a chance to volunteer! If we are having a problem filling one of the months I am happy to do it.

        Sorry for the confusion - thank you for getting this kicked off.

        1. re: EmBrooks

          I was holding off as well, I'm willing to do more than one month.

    2. I wish the CHOW Team would help promote COTM; place this info on the Blog so more people would see it.

        Yea I feel like wicked step child. Who doesn't like cheese?

      2. Looking forward to the kick off of October and bumping this thread in the hopes more CH's will volunteer to cover a month still open.

          Is that a nudge, HIllJ? October is in the works, to be posted verrryy shortly :)

          1. re: fldhkybnva

            Glad to hear it. The nudge rec'd in Sept when it was my turn to cover was much appreciated...consider this, sharing the cheese-love.

        2. Hi Phoebe, could you please drop me an email to the address in my profile? I have an idea to bounce off you privately.

          1. In anticipation of Ridge kicking off what sounds to be an interesting Nov Cheese of the Month experience, I'm giving this thread a boost in the hopes more CH's will volunteer Dec-March,

            Calling all cheese lovers!

              I'm not sure if I'm allowed again, but if there is a month and someone is needed I'm willing. It doesn't matter when. I had a great time with October.

                It's been a fun read, fldh! Thanks for contributing.

                1. re: fldhkybnva

                  You did an awesome job! You stayed on top of the topic and sewed it all together. I don't think I will be as good. Too unorganized.

                  1. re: Ridge

                    Let me know if you need me. I can do January if no one has volunteered or doesn't want to do it when it rolls around.

                    1. re: Ridge

                      Gosh, I hope you don't feel that way, Ridge. The Cheese of the Month is all about having a good time. No test follows :)

                        1. re: fldhkybnva

                          Okay, you can take my tests for me! You're hired!

                        2. re: HillJ

                          We certainly are having fun this month. Lots of good participation and discussion.

                          1. re: Ridge

                            It's been a great cheese-ride since the launch of Cheese of the Month. Every volunteer has been generous of time and I've learned a great deal in the process. I hope more CH's step up and volunteer.
