THE 2018 SCENARIO - Get back to basics

You have been on the road for several days and on the last leg of the trip, you need to use up the tins of food rolling around the bottom of your panniers.

YOUR MISSION: To cook a main meal to impress the judges, from canned, dehydrated, preserved or longlife ingredients, packed in your gear and transported on your bike to Kalgan.  

Your main meal must:  be nutritious, look good enough to eat and taste great.


1.      To enter the 2018 BMW MCC WA Camp Cook-Off you must be a current financial member of the club.  Non-members are welcome to enter, however-not eligible to win prizes in this competition.

2.      Entrants to the 2018 Camp Cook-Off must carry all their camping gear, cooking ingredients, cooking utensils and cooking equipment to the campsite on their motorcycle.

3.      Meal preparation may commence from 5:30pm and cooking must be completed and presented to judges by no later than 7pm.

4.      Entrants must display their cooking ingredients, utensils and cooking equipment for the judges to view, prior to commencing preparation of the main meal.

5.      Your main meal must be created from ‘scratch’ i.e. no prior preparation is to occur outside of, or prior to reaching the campsite.

6.      As a minimum, you need to cook enough to feed yourself and a small tasting plate for the judges. 

7.      Your main meal must be presented to the judges for tasting between 6pm and 7pm.

8.      The judges will not tolerate much bribery.  The judges’ decisions are final and will not be negotiated.

9.      You must use your own stove or camp fire to prepare your meal – use of Campsite facilities is not permitted.


Contestants will be awarded points for the main meal they prepare based on the following:

Suitability of ingredients to cook a main meal, after being packed on your motorcycle without refrigeration, for several days.

Nutritional value of your main meal.

Planning and presentation of your meal.

Originality and creativity.


Choose your own route to the event, or join in the dirt or bitumen group rides.  

It is a good idea to clock your mileage – there might be a prize to be won. (Record mileage because greatest or lowest mileage wins a prize, or??)

There’s ample camping space, good supply of wood for fire pit, access to flushing toilets and running water. 

Even some man-made shelter if required.


Each year our sponsors donate a range of great prizes that members entering the Camp Cook-Off are eligible to win. Be in it to win it and when you can, please support the Club’s very generous sponsors.
