9th Annual Airbiscuit Ann Rally & Chili Cookoff (Sept 25-29, 2019)
This is the 9th year this will be taking place. Come join us for some fun, food, laughter, and some friendly competition! Thursday we plan to dine at a local establishment! Then Friday as more folks roll in, we will have pontoon boat rides, and for 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!
*Main event area will be near the playground area*
Once you have found your site and gotten settled in, make your way over to Wherever the Argosy is to pick up your rally info! If no one is present, there will be a tote by the door with the rally info inside!
We will be at Guilford Lake SP (Campground) again this year. Check out the calendar page here on Airforums for updated info as things get planned out, all the reservation details, and plan to join us Sept 25-29, 2019!
