Ultimate Food Championship @ 5PM
This year's potluck challenge is the Ultimate Food Championship, Meat vs Vegetable!
Meat is the current, undisputed heavyweight champion. The challenger is the Vegetable. 10lbs of lean green fighting machine. Vegetarian lovers, this is your chance to break out your best vegetable recipes and put them in the platagon against the mighty Meat. Meat lovers, don't take this challenger lightly. Stay off your rump roasts and meet the challenge with the juiciest, marinates you can create. In this competition, there is no testing for flavour enhancing stimulants. Feel free to inject those juices into your chosen champion and make the best dishlete possible!
The rules of the platagon:
The judging will occur for favourite meat dish and favourite vegetable dish separately. From this round of judging, one challenger from each camp will be identified. A final round of judging will occur to select either the meat dish or the vegetable dish.
*** There will be a Celebrity Chef Judge this year! Bring your best! ***
When posting your "Will Attend" to this event, please list what you are bringing and how many people are in your party.
Our venue has an oven for heating/re-heating of food and is equipped with all the amenities including a kids area. Please post a Will Attend if you are able to join us, as well as be sure to add it to your watchlist for changes and updates. A donation plate will be set out to help pay for the cost of the venue.
Potluck tips -
"A good potluck rule of thumb is to bring enough in the dish to feed your family if that is all they ate. Many people attempt to feed the whole group and you end up with way too much food."
Conversley, bringing a small plate of desserts, or 'just drinks' and then filling up on main dishes means that the potluck runs out of food before the end of the line.
The fun thing about potlucks is you never really know what is going to be there, but usually works out to be quite a variety.
Be prepared to list ingredients as required for those who suffer food allergies
We will be celebrating the MBGA's 10th anniversary by serving birthday cake at this event. (Hey, it's also the 15th anniversary of Geocaching. Even more reason to have cake!)
MBGA Annual General Meeting at 7PM
After dinner, we will have a short meeting to review the MBGA's efforts over the past year and discuss plans for the upcoming year. (Depending on attendance, we may need to reconfigure the room before the meeting begins.)
There will also be elections for the new Board Members. We have a busy year coming up and we could really use some help. If you are interested in running for election to join the Board, please contact the MBGA at email@example.com.
We are hoping to have a couple of older geo-kids in attendance to watch over the smaller geo-kids in the activity room. They will keep the younger ones occupied (and quieter during the meeting portion of this event) with activites. They will be paid for their services. Please consider adding a donation to our donation jar to offset the cost of both the hall and the babysitting payments.
The donation bin will also be present to help offset the general costs associated with renting the facility and the miscellaneous costs incurred with hosting the event. Please consider donating to the general expenses of the MBGA
We will be holding the raffle for the Pi coins from March 14. Last tickets for this will be available before we draw.
15 Years of Geocaching Coin
This coin was slated to be released at this event. There was a delay at the mint, so we will host a later pub night to make these available.
MBGA 10th Anniversary Coin Design Reveal
Yes, that's right. You get to see our 10th year coin design!
"So do they sometimes hide caches in dog poo like this?" "No, that's real poo. You might want to put that down."
