13th Annual Airbiscuit Anniversary Rally & Chili Cookoff

Sept 21-24, 2023

This is the 13th year (HOLY COW) it will be taking place!!!! Come join us for some fun, food, laughter, and some friendly competition! Thursday we plan to check out some local food (cough cough wine) establishments! Then Friday as folks roll in, dinner we will provide hot dogs and beans along with some other yummy dishes with a roaring campfire. The most fun is always Saturday when we have the Chili Cook off where the winner gets to take home the traveling airstream trophy and we hold our rally raffle right after!

When you arrive you will receive a goodie bag/folder with local attractions, a wondering wino/distillery tour to check out at your leisure (if you are doing this, you are welcome to see me upon arrival for a DD number just in case) and some other goodies! We will also throw in the updated final schedule that we loosely stick to! We also will have a driving map/directions for a covered bridge tour and some other local things to partake in!

Main events and gatherings will happen around site 88. Bring a chair and your table service to all food and social gatherings!

Please keep in mind this is a small park so sites will fill up fast, if you find you are unable to secure a site, please reach out to me and I will see if we can get you a site. If you have to cancel last minute, please contact me before you cancel! Thanks!

Hope to see you all there!!!

I will post details on this thread below or on the calendar!

CHILI COOKOFF RULES – Iron Chef Style
Rules?! DO we realllllly need rules? Some lets say just need boundaries.


TURN IN: Saturday Sept 23, 5:30pm. We need time to label and organize in order to start sending out samples. PLEASE be prompt. The first round of samples leaves at 5:45pm sharp so if yours is not on the designated table by that time, it will not be included!
Look for the flag as to which site to turn in your pot of goodness! We will provide serving utensils for each slow cooker/crock pot/serving dish.

Please bring your best chili in a slow cooker, dutch oven or some other device that will keep your chili hot and ready to serve. We encourage a variety - meatless, spicy, white, or surprise ingredient! If it spicy, please let us know when you turn it in, so we can mark it as such when folks are taste testing!

Some ideas of years past that have been turned in:
Meat (Beef, Chicken, Pork, Wild Game)
Meatless
White
Spicy
With Beans/No Beans


Winner Winner Chili Dinner!!
We vote by secret ballot. Everyone who shows up to the general area gets one ballot to vote with. The chili with the most votes is the trophy winner! That means they get the privilege and bragging rights to take trophy traveling, add their name to it, and then return next year to pass it on or defend their title!


Rally hosts and organizers are on sites: 88, 86, 89
Please ask questions or stop over if we can assist with anything!

This is the 13th year for this rally. Come join us for some fun, food, laughter, and friendly competition! One of the highlights of this rally is on Saturday when we have the Chili Cook off where the winner gets to take home the traveling airstream trophy! See the Tentative Itinerary for more highlights.

*Main event area will be sites 88, 86, 89! But look for signs!*
Once you have found your site and are settled in, make your way over to pick up your rally info! If no one is present, there will be a tote by the door with the rally info inside including the final itinerary and site information for events!

If you are coming, please be sure to let Loren know so she can have an accurate headcount for goody bags!

Geneva State Park (campground)
4499 Padanarum Rd
Geneva, OH 44041

Link to reservation page

Each rig will need to make their own reservations.
Please let argosybiscuit know so we can have a good headcount and we can set up a map!

Payment for your site fee will be made directly to the campground.

No rally fee however a raffle and a 50/50 raffle will be held to help cover some of the costs for the rally. Optional sightseeing attractions may have a charge.

The Sooner the better since this is a small campground. Reservations opened March 20, 2023!
