Chili CookOff and Cornbread Competition Feb. 22

Everyone who has attended this in the past knows how much fun this event is and the fact that there is more food and flavors than our group can handle. That’s why we’re doing it again. Back to Fred Wright and Kathy Lombardo's home for plenty of wonderful chili and a variety of cornbread... all part of the annual NWARC Chili CookOff and Cornbread Contest. After years of perfecting your reci- pes, this is time to cook up your best version of chili, cornbread, or both! We’ll be judging a champion for each category. Bowls, spoons, real butter and soft drinks will be provided. Feel free to bring your favorite beer, wine or spirits as well.

When: February 22rd at 12 noon, Chili and Corn Bread judg- ing begins at 1PM. The Daytona 500 will be on the big screen and the garage will be open for bench racing so hang around for the afternoon. Consider a nice walk on the beach as an option... rain or shine!

Where: 3843 85th Avenue NW Olympia, WA 98502 (360) 628-8679

Directions: I-5 to the Olympia area, then take Exit 104 onto Hwy 101. Follow Hwy 101 toward Shelton; Once you take the final segue onto Hwy 101 toward Shelton go a few miles... take Exit 101 onto Steamboat Island Road, once you exit you’ll initially follow the road to the left. Next, turn Right (at the stop sign) onto Steamboat Island Road and follow for approx. 7 miles. Turn left on Howe (79th goes off to the extreme left but you take the ‘gentle left’). Turn left on Mason... Mason turns into 85th. Follow 85th to the end and take the last drive way on the left. If you find the wrong house, their nice neighbors and may enjoy chili as well.

AROO / NWARC Joint Club Drive May 16-17

Hopefully you took the advice given in the January Iniezione and re- served the weekend of May 16-17 for the AROO-NWARC Tour. Further discussion with the planner for the Oregon chapter has ensued and we decided that limiting this first event to two days might encourage more participation from both chapters. We anticipate beginning the tour mid- morning on Saturday (May 16), south of Chehalis, near the intersection of I-5 and US-12 (exit 68). We will head east on US-12 and, depending upon conditions, will divert to Chinook Pass or continue on US-12 to Canyon Rd. toward Ellensburg. There will be ample opportunity for potty stops, socializing, as well as lunch along the way. Later on Satur- day we’ll be finding some nice roads east of Ellensburg and then head to our lodging in time for some socializing, hap- py hour and then on to dinner and more socializing. Do you get the idea that this is an opportunity for members of two of AROC’s largest chapters to mingle and get to know each other better? Accommodation rates are yet to be finalized, but there will be an electronic announcement in the future, as well as notice given in the Iniezione.

On Sunday, AROO folks will head south on a route their planners will design. I intend to head back toward the Seattle metropolitan area via Blewett and Stevens Passes.

Additionally, I expect to take backroads on Friday and reserve a motel room in the Chehalis area to allow a more leisurely Saturday morning before getting to the meeting place. Please let me know if you are interested in knowing what route I will be taking and at which motel I will be bunking on Friday.

I would appreciate hearing from people who plan to participate so we can have a better idea of numbers for lunch, dinner, motel, etc. in advance of finalizing plans. If you have questions, and/or wish to be notified as plans are finalized, please or call 425-241-9307.
