Northern Sierra Dutch Oven Group Message Board › Invitation to participate in 2011 Freedom Fest
Happy August, everyone!
I wanted to get everyone's feedback on an upcoming community event that we've been invited to participate in, in conjunction with our sponsor Sportsman's Warehouse. A local citizen's group is organizing Reno's first Freedom Fest. These festivals have been organized around the country to basically celebrate freedom and patriotism. I don't believe they are meant to be political rallies of any sort.
Anyway, Reno's will be held on Sunday, September 11, from 3 p.m. - dusk, at the parking lot on the corner of Moana and Virginia St. A number of local companies are sponsors, including Sportsman's, Wells Fargo, some casinos, and there will be news coverage. Sportsman's has asked if our group would be interested in cooking at the event, passing out samples, and sharing our passion for a truly American style of cooking! Sportsman's has offered to cover all of our food costs and temporary health permit. We would not have to stay for the entire event, maybe cook for a few hours. The organizers expect around 1500 to 2000 people to attend the event.
If anyone is interested in participating on that day, please let me know by August 20 so I can let Sportsman's know if our group can commit or not.
Thanks...and I hope to see many of you at our upcoming "tailgate" event!
