Hopefully the RT 45 bridge will be fixed soon. Mark your calendars for the August Potluck – August 17th.

Cook-off Preliminary Info:
How it works:
If participating as a cook — Sign up with the Club for a small entry fee. Prepare your favorite recipe for about 40-50 people and bring them to the Clubhouse for the cook-off. The Club will provide the sides.
If participating to eat — Your entry fee will buy you a ticket to sample ribs from each of our participants and you vote on your favorite. Additional tastings can be purchased.

We will try another fundraising event some other time. The bridge closure may have affected participation.
