The Public will purchase a card in exchange for 8 samples. Each card purchased will allow them to cast one vote for their favorite. The number of cards sold will be determined by the number of participants. Participating teams will receive the raw meat and plastic cups to serve samples. While serving the sample, teams should write their team name in the box on the card indicating a sample has been served. Teams will collect their own vote tickets, and will be picked up at 4pm. The 3 teams with the most number of tickets will be declared the winners at the award ceremony, and will be awarded prize money and trophies. There is no cost to teams to participate, and service to the public will be limited to 1 hour. This contest is being run as a fundraiser for the Patchin Fire Company. Your participation is encouraged and very much appreciated.
Back by popular demand - the VIP Wristband. Throughout the weekend, we invite you to responsibly enjoy the various adult beverages on tap at either Porky’s Pen or Petunia’s Pub. Teams with children will also receive a few complimentary ride tickets courtesy of the event.
