2007 Carson City Rendezvous Dutch oven Cook-off
I have the dates for the Carson City Rendezvous DOG and Cook-off for 2007! So mark your calendars, get those recipes together and register for an awesome Nevada style event!
June 8-10, 2007 is the date for the Carson City Rendezvous and Dutch oven Gathering and Competition.
Friday, June 8 will be full of demonstrations, classes, and fellowship among the public, D.o. cooks and others. Saturday, June 9 there will be more classes, including using your Maca deep Dutch ovens, making ice cream, sourdough, using pine cones for a heat source and many more classes. The DOG will begin at 3 p.m. and serving at 6 p.m. The high light of the DOG is 12 oz. of prime rib for each person at a donation of $10.00 per person. The DOG is free to everyone but, if you want a piece of prime rib you must purchase a pre-sale ticket by 1 p.m. on Saturday. On Sunday, June 10 is the cook-off. At 7:00 a.m. the free breakfast cook-off begins with judging at 8:45 a.m. A biscuit and gravy breakfast will be served with the breakfast cook-off at $2.00 per person. Come early because there are hungry mountain men and women that wait all weekend for this one!
The Cook-off begins after a 9:30 a.m. cooks meeting, and judging begins at 1:00 p.m. Peoples choice judging begins at 1:15 p.m. with tickets available to the public at $2.00 per person. The winners of the 3 pot cook-off then move on to the world championships! Prizes and money for winners of both cook-offs are being gathered and are increasing as WE continue the organizing process. Smith's grocery has donated $500.00 so far! Many other donations and sponsorships for the cook-off are being gathered and sorted. More on prizes as information becomes available. To enter the cook-off the registration fee is $10.00 per entry of bread, main dish, and dessert. Or $25.00 to enter all three to qualify for the IDOS world championships.
Don Alt will be returning with his chuck wagon and we are trying to get a few more to join us! We also have several groups who are bringing canvas wall tents and other goodies just for the Dutch oven part of the rendezvous. If you would like to join us for this grand weekend in down town Carson City, please contact me a.s.a.p. so I can reserve a free campsite for you and your group to join us!
