Hello Geocachers! Welcome to the February 2014 Georgia Geocachers Association meeting, in the lovely and cache-friendly High Falls State Park!
We will meet at Group Shelter #1 in High Falls State Park
The GGA February 2013 Meeting will be held on Saturday, February 8th from 2:00 PM until 4:00 PM.
You can start setting up and heating your Chili at 1:00. The Group shelter is an enclosed indoor shelter.
Break out your recipes and/or appetites and come hungry for the Chili Cook Off!
You do not need to bring chili to attend, but, the more the merrier! If you choose to compete please bring your best chili effort to the meeting and share your culinary talents. The judges have been primed and bribed, err, we mean prepared and the chili will be tasty! Of course your entry will be judged for the opportunity to take the ‘GOLD’.
If you are competing please bring your chili ready to eat, or close to it. Contestants will need to bring a chili serving utensil. Bowls, eating utensils, cheese and saltine crackers will be provided. Electrical outlets will be provided for chili pots. Entrants are asked to check in early so that they can be given an entry code to protect their identity. Chili check in will start at 1:45 pm and end at 2:15 pm. The judges will NOT know who brought what entry, they will be isolated during the check in process.
Entrants will be provided with a small card to list any unique ingredients. Ingredients such as, but not limited to: peanuts, chocolate, shellfish, seafood, honey, MSG, etc. This is for the safety of those with specific food allergies.
We will again be having a Non-Traditional Chili Catagory. This will be chili's that are not traditional red. Traditional red chili is defined as any combination of meats,cooked with red chili peppers, various spices and other ingredients. Some ideas for alternative chili are white, vegetarian, verde or anything you can think of. If a contestant bringing an alternative chili would prefer to compete in the traditional category that is allowed. A traditional chili as described above many not compete in the alternative category.
There will be a category voted on by all attendees:- - BEST PRESENTATION - -
Please arrive early enough to have your presentation area ready no later 2:15 pm. The attendees will be allowed to start voting at that time. If your presentation needs electricity please bring an extension cord or power bar.
If your New Years Resolutions include Travel Bugs (launching some, moving along ones that have been in your geo-bag too long, or just finding out more about trackable items), be sure to check out the Travel Bug Corral, which is a place to swap TBs and other trackables. We will also have a display of some different kinds of trackables, and will be glad to answer questions./strong>
