DS vs AVF bake-off!

  • Allestree Park Nature Reserve

    Allestree , Derby (map)

    52.955250 -1.479049

  • meet on the main field of allestree park at 4pm, entrance off the A6 between duffield and allestree
  • Lets take on Amber Valley Friends in a friendly Scone bake-off competition.

    The event:

    • If you sign up you're baking - spectators are encouraged to come and cheer us on but please do not RSVP, if you are attending as a spectator please add a comment so we can plan for numbers and extra voting forms

    • Bake 10 scones to your own winning recipe to bring along for judging

    • The organisors will allocate a number to each batch and distribute them for voting so no-one knows the identity of each scone

    • scones may be presented with jam and cream but this will not effect the judging

    The Voting:

    • all participants will taste and vote

    • each participant you will get to taste half a scone from each plate, so allergy sufferers should be aware of this when considering joining the event

    • everyone gets a vote

    • one vote per person

    • no voting for your own scone

    • voting will be based on 3 categories: appearance, taste, and texture of the scone, and nothing but the scone, accompaniements should be disregarded

    • simply mark each scone out of a maximimum of 3 in each category

    • the scone with the highest total score from all votes will be declared the winner, giving an immense feeling of well-being for the baker and chalking one up for Derby Sociables, 'cause I know you can do it!

    After much discussion, AVF have decided to postpone this event until DS can rally the troops and provide us with some worthy competition. We would not wish to witness a baking-massacre, this is a family-friendly event.

    If DS are about to concede do AVF get to choose what forfeit they pay? This could be an interesting afternoon!!

    maybe we need a physical challenge instead then ladies, you have to run a mile then eat all your scones, first to scoff the lot wins

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
