A Little Help from Friends
Fun = food, Got a great chili recipe? Enter it in GPAN's chili cook-off at the Winter Gathering and be a winner. They'll be prizes. There'll be chili . They'll be recipes. There'll even be antacids. GPAN will supply the extras - cheese, onions, chips, jalapenos, cornbread, crackers. Winners will be selected by folks at the Winter Gathering who vote on the chili they like best. Due to space, we're limiting the cook off to the first 12 entrants. For details, email Mardy Fones.
GPAN is an all-volunteer organization, so we're always looking for folks like you to help with set up, tear down and other short-term tasks at the Winter Gathering. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to lend a hand.
This is a sight-hound only event. Please leave other-breed dogs at home. By order of the livestock center, dogs are no longer allowed in the bleachers. An area is reserved inside the arena for lawn chairs, xpens and blankets. But who has time to sit down? There's too much fun going on.
