Dutch Oven Gathering
It’s been a while since our last update. We are alive and well.
As many of you know Facebook has become the “Go to Place” for information about our Dutch Oven Group and our Dutch Oven Gatherings schedule.
We met on February 6th for our Cabin Fever Dutch Oven Gathering to kick the year off. The weather cooperated with us for a nice partly sunny day that hit the mid 60’s. The week before had us worried as it poured pretty dang hard.
The Southeast Camper Cabin Fever Dutch Oven Gathering attracted over 50 cooks and guest with 38 recipes made in our cast iron black pots. The menu was abounding with everything you could want; nobody goes away hungry.
Our next event is the first weekend in April. The Southeast Camper Dutch Oven Group (Charlotte, NC) will hook up with The Old Dominion Iron Chefs (Richmond, VA) for the NC-VA 2 state DOG. We will be camping at Jordan Lake in the Parkers Creek Camping Area, Loop 2. We will have a Pot Luck Dinner Friday Night with the Big DOG Saturday at Shelter #1 in the Seaforth Area. We like to meet about 8 am for a Meet’n’Greet along with breakfast. A few with make snacks and test recipes during the day. The main buffet will be at 4 pm right at the shelter. Afterwards we will have a drawing for some door prizes.
Get your gear ready along with your favorite recipe for an afternoon of outdoor cooking fun and fellowship.
We hope to see you at a Dutch Oven Gathering around the Carolina’s.
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.
