Top Chef - potluck and cooking competition!

As the Top Chef event date approaches, we'll ask attendees to sign up for the cooking competition (optional) and to sign up for one of the pot luck food categories (salad, main or dessert) for Saturday night's pot luck dinner.   RSVP as early as you can lock down the date on your busy calendars so we know how many teams we'll have and how many mouths to feed!

As usual - please add your boat details (including name, beam and lenth and type of tie preferred) if that information is not already showing on your membership page.  If coming by car instead of boat, please indicate "by land" so we know you don't need a boat slip assignment.  You can still compete in the Top Chef cooking competition if coming by land.

Bring a few bucks cash with you -- we'll be bringing ingredients you can buy from the "ship store" and each team will pay a nominal fee to cover the expense of getting their initial bag of incredients, including the secret ingredient.

Contact Commodore Laura Kogen if you have any questions.
