As we get closer to the big day at the Ranch, here are several more opportunities to join your fellow cooks for some fun fellowship. There are MANY little things that help to make this week and the cook off a success and the members are at the heart of all this. If you can find some time, jump in with both feet.......the water is fine.
Marking the Old 320
Every year the weather takes its toll on the Old 320 cooking arena. All the markers have to be located, the cooking and show sites marked and get the arena roped off. This takes place on Wednesday morning around 9am. Bob Steinle, Pam Clark and Mike Park could sure use help taking care this. Wear your comfortable shoes and clothes and pop over to the 320. Refreshing beverages are served to the helpers.
Main Concession Shirt Folding
Getting the main concession up and running is task in itself. On Wednesday morning at 9am, ALL the shirts that are to sold have to folded and sorted by size. With lots of help, it takes about and hour and half. Shirt folding takes place in the Anicra Pavilion. Susan Armand and crew would love to see your bright, smiling, happy face that morning.
It takes a lot of cheese and celery and go through five rounds of judging. On Thursday, November 3 in the Mexene judging pavilion, bring a cutting board and your favorite knife and join in the veggie cutting. This task takes about an hour and half with lots of help. So grab your utensils of destruction and join Cindy Noe and friends for a couple of hours.
Highway clean up is scheduled for Thursday, November 3. Meet at the Ranch entrance at 8am. The effort is not difficult at all and there will be chase vehicles to shuttle folks back and forth. Slow paced, nice leisurely stroll and no one will walk very far. There are roadside markers that you want to collect as you are picking up the rubbish. These markers are for prizes that are redeemed at the end of the walk. If you want to know more get in touch with Bud Barrick at firstname.lastname@example.org
Porta Can Decorating
This is an unusual one. Many Pods donated funds to help defray the costs of the porta cans again this year. Pick a porta can, decorate it however you would like. However, there are several rules furnished to us by the owners of the porta cans. Please do not use any kind of paint, duct tape or drill holes in the porta cans. This could be a lot of fun, There are endless possibilities here to have some fun and make these unique and different. C'mon folks, use your imagination.
