What a great year for the Southeast Camper Dutch Oven Group. We had really great weather for the gatherings this year and we hope it keeps going into 2015.
Our group has grown over the last few years from 3 to as many as 30 to 40 folks joining us to cook. I’d like to thank everyone that helped make the Southeast Camper Dutch Oven Group a good time.
The Southeast Camper Dutch Oven Group was represented all over the country this year. We had representatives at the National Dutch Oven Gathering in Iowa, East Coast Dutch Oven Gathering in Pennsylvania as well as the Mile High Dutch Oven Gathering in North Carolina.
We already have several Dutch Oven Gatherings scheduled for the new year starting with our Chili DOG, February 7th and the NC VA 2 State DOG at the end of March 29th.
We had a large turnout for the Southeast Camper Spring DOG and plenty of food to satisfy any appetite.
We will be back at Kings Mountain State Park on the last Saturday in April.
Stay tuned for more.

Southeast Camper would like to have a group luncheon on January 25, 2014, 1:00 pm at Bucca di Beppo in Pineville, NC. Bucca di Beppo is a nice Italian place with pasta and pizza, etc. For more info about our meeting place can be found here: http://www.bucadibeppo.com/
This luncheon will be our annual International Dutch Oven Society meeting so we can remain in good standing with IDOS rules. You will need to be a current IDOS member to vote on any issues pertaining to the group, but all are welcome to join us and participate.
The purpose of this meeting will be to set dates for future Dutch Oven Gatherings. Also we should look into donations and / or fund raisers to help cover some of the groups cost ie: pavilions and shelters. We’ve been rained on enough, so we know how important it is to plan ahead and have pavilions secured in advance.
This should be a fun and productive meeting. We are looking forward to seeing everyone again in the new year.
