Where: Fort Garry United Church, 800 Point Rd
When: Saturday, December 29, 2012
Time: 5 - 9 PM
What: Annual holiday gathering
Why: To swap gifts, eat some grub and talk cache, of course

Come one come all to our 7th annual potluck holiday gathering where we will have a gift exchange and chat about our favourite topic: caching! Everyone is welcome to attend and as an added bonus, you can log it as a find!

To quote Dragonfreys circa 2007, "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. 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. Also be prepared to list ingredients as required for those who suffer food allergies"

Once again, we will be having an optional gift exchange. Gifts should not be more than $20 (CDN). Please mark if it is a child's gift (age 10 and under). We'll do a separate exchange for the kids.

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 two ovens 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.

Hope to see you all there!

Ultimate Food Championship

Twice per year, we have a major event which features a potluck. The Holiday event and the AGM. Each of these potlucks features a food challenge of some sort. 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!

On the undercard... the dessert smackdown. This is a pure smackdown with multiple entrants in the platagon at the same time. May the best sugary treat taste sweet sweet victory.

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 can be only one!
