Re: Food Stand
The first year we put on our ride we had a woman with a catering trailer
set up, she handled serving people food Friday afternoon and Saturday. It
was wonderful! Then she served our awards dinner Saturday night-steak,
potato, rolls, and desert...Sinful! Last year, we contacted our First
Responders, local EMT group, and they helped to serve our Rancher's Dinner
on Friday night before the ride, again, steaks, potato, salad, rolls and
desert...we saved quite a bit of money last year since we did all the
cooking ourselves-had pently of volunteers though. The First Responders
then cooked hamburgers, hotdogs, and cold sandwiches on Saturday of the
ride-we provided the food. Very handy for all-since the closest food is 25
miles away....Also very handy since we had a rider fall and break-up her
shoulder quite badly....had 6 or so First Responders there-two went out on
the call, while the rest stayed in camp to cook, do P&R's and make sure
that nothing else happened.....They are even going to be back this year to
help out! We did make a sizable donation to the group for their help.
Another suggestion besides the EMT's would be the PTA of the local school,
local 4-H groups, or FFA groups....they are always looking for extra
