The 2012 Camp Cook Off

25 Sep 2012 19:58 | Anonymous member (Administrator)
This is the 4th year of the Annual Camp Cook-off but it was the first I have attended. 24 members, partners, family and friends attended the camp at Kokerbin Hill between Quairading and Bruce Rock. What a great event it was! I know it's an old cliche "you had to be there", but I reckon its true. There was great camaraderie, outrageous sledging (Ken), amazing cooking skills and some outright theatrics (JP!)

The night was chilly so a big camp fire was in order with Travis ferrying vast quantities of wood in to keep the fire going all night.

There were the usual posers!

Arriving early to scope out the competition.

It was great to see so many entries and such a variety of dishes.

The judges certainly didn't go wanting for dinner on the night.

In fact a few of the spectators didn't go wanting either as they followed the judges around with their own cutlery sampling the left overs!

This year most came by road, but JP reminded us that the he came by dirt, how the heck he brought the TV and Caramel popcorn is another story!
but it was enough to win him a jacket. Though I think the judges might have awarded it just to shut him up!!

Many more pictures and details to come, the pictures are still coming in.

A big thanks to Toni and Anthony for their great work in making the event possible. Thanks to the Judges, ladies you did a great job. Thanks to all our sponsors who will be listed in a subsequent post, and thank you to all who attended and helped to make it a great evening.
