The Annual Seneca Rocks Chili Cookoff 

Saturday, October 21

Seneca Rocks, WV

 


 

OPEN TO ALL - BRING YOUR OWN CLIMBING PARTNER!



This fun annual gathering serves as the last big event to closeout another amazing rock climbing season and to commemorate the fall of the Gendarme pinnacle at Seneca on October 22nd 1987. This is not a PATC-MS-only event; however, you will need to sign up if you would like to stay at our campsites for free.


The club has reserved campsites at Seneca Shadows.  We have the sites from Friday through check-out at 1pm on Sunday. Check your confirmation email for the sites. Please work together to utilize the space on each tent pad to it's maximum; all tents must be on the pads. Please also try to refrain from using a larger tent for just one person.  We are really getting pushed for space.

If you want to compete in the chili contest:

  • Make at least 1 gallon or more of your favorite chili recipe and submit your entry by 5:30pm on the front porch of the Gendarme. 
  • There is a $5.00 entry fee.
  • Judging will begin at 6:00pm.
  • Only one category will be judged, which is best overall.  Winner takes the total entry fees plus $50 kicked in by The Gendarme. 
  • Judging will be by an impartial (and hopefully sober) panel. 
  • Bowls for judging will be provided when the entry fee is paid. The rest is up to you. The Gendarme does not have facilities for heating chili up.

If you want to eat chili:


***Please bring your own bowl, cup and spoon to reduce waste***


***IF YOU WANT TO EAT CHILI, BE THERE BY 5:30PM***


Kegs will be tapped when the time comes, but normally around 5:30pm. Bring donations!


Throughout the night we will have an on-going raffle to benefit Friends of Seneca. Tickets are 2 for $5 or 5 for $10.  Arthur will be randomly drawing out tickets and we'll have a wide variety of prizes.


At dark we will have our main guest presentation...TBA.


This is a rain or shine event.  If it's raining, we'll probably be drinking a heckuva lot earlier than usual!  See y'all out there!
