Gene,

I'll make the armadillo eggs for the Friday night pot luck, and I'll be bringing chili for Saturday. Now mixing the armadillo eggs into the chili...that might be a novel idea.

Steve

We'll bring trout for smoking if you are bringing your smoker. Otherwise we will bring our grill, and do grilled trout for the potluck. And cinnamon rolls.
The chili is a secret family recipe (read ingredients are by guess and by golly and we can't remember what we put in it from time to time and it is always different!, a dash of this and that....)

Sandy,

The smoker I will be bringing is the little smoker made out of flower pots that I had at Meremac SP. It won't fit those lovely fish you caught. I wouldn't be able to make separate trips for the big smoker!

I was thinking of picking up an Armadillo on the way up Friday for the chili...I'm sure I will see one or two along the way!

As long as we cook the leprosy out of it we should be okay.

Steve have they sent you a map of the camp ground, so we can pick our spots?

Went to my family reunion last weekend. Rained all night Thur, all day Friday, 3/4 day Saturday and Sunday morning. COLD COLD in Kansas. Got home and about had a heat stroke unloading the trailer (94 degrees). A good mopping and she will be ready for Branson.

Nope, guess I need to call them again.

Branson Chili Competition questions and other details

maccamper crew of 2 has confirmed reservations at Oak Grove! We'll just trust that jury duty doesn't conflict with our plans.

Now, down to some serious cooking business .... with some questions about the Saturday Chili Competition:

How many entries can each contestant have?
How much of the chili prep can be done ahead of time at home?
How much of the chili prep can be done before Saturday at the campground?
How big a batch of chili should each contestant prepare?
-- just enough for the judges?
-- enough for the judges and just samples for the rest of the folks?
-- enough for the judges and plenty to share at Saturday night dinner?

For the Friday night potluck, we plan to bring Red Beans and Rice. For the Saturday night chili dinner, we plan to bring "Pepper/Corn Spoonbread." The spoonbread will be a nice accompaniment to chili.

We plan to arrive late afternoon to early evening on Thursday 10/16 and stay till Tuesday, Oct 21. We're going to do a day trip down to Eureka Springs, AR on Monday 10/20.

Whoo hooo! C'mon Branson! Oh yes, we'll also bring the bubble machine!

maccamper (Nancy Mac)

Another contestant!...well that makes two The rules are simple.

1. One entry per person for the contest, make as many different chilis you want, but only one for judging.

2.-3. You can prep as much as you need at home or the campground.

4. Last year people made a batch in a crock pot or large stove pot. I give a very small amount to the judges, and the rest is left for the rally to enjoy. Look at it like a chili potluck. People not making chili Saturday are welcome to come and eat chili and Friday night leftovers.

Monday is the day that we lose a hold on our spots. They go to 1st Come 1st Served after that. If you are considering Branson, make a reservation and cancel if you cannot make it. The RV Park has informed me he has a great deal of people calling him about spots.

Just over a month to go!

Steve

Hey Kani,

I have not heard from 2Asprins or Nohillgrish in a few weeks. I put out a message to find out. I also contacted the Horton clan to see if they could make it. They sold their Airstream and are looking for another. Since they live in Branson, they may make it down for some events.

Steve

We are reserved for the 17th & 18th. Spoke with 2aspirins today, and I think they are going but have not made reservations yet. Lady at the campground said they would not assign spots until arrival. This would allow them to pick and choose who to put where based on size of unit. She also said that we as a group might not be together. Said it was a small park, however, and we shouldn't be too far from each other wherever we were. I'm not sure, Steve, that this is what you were led to believe.
