Backcountry Cook-Off

Needs a location

Participate in our Backcountry Cook-off and help other outdoor enthusiasts expand their backcountry cooking repertoire! Show off your “old reliable” or try an interesting new recipe before you take it out on the trail. You don't need to be a Rovers member to participate.

Here are the guidelines: It’s Day Four of a wilderness backpacking trip. Ingredients and recipes should be appropriate for the backcountry. Recipes should take 20 minutes or fewer to prepare and require only a single-burner stove. We’ll need lots of delicious entries, so we hope you’ll consider entering! Tasters— bring your plates/bowls and utensils to sample the goodies and vote for your favorite!

We need YOU to share your backcountry recipes! If you plan to enter, send Sue Wittkop at [masked] the following information:
* Your name
* Title of what you will prepare (Easy-Peasy Nut and Fruit Couscous, Spaghetti with Dried Veggie Sauce, etc.)
* If you do not own a stove and will need a stove burner

Please bring everything you need (ingredients, pots/pans, etc.). Water is available from the sinks in the nearby restrooms.

Cooking will begin as soon as the meeting part of our night is concluded (around 7:20). Sampling and voting should start around 7:40.

Will YOU be the Minnesota Rovers 2022 Backcountry Cook of the Year? The winner will receive a $25 gift card and all other participants will get to choose from a swag bag.

After the meeting we will socialize at Gabe's by the Park.

Tents, tents and more tents!

Needs a location

Have you ever wondered about the tents in the equipment locker? What is Rover gear like? How easy are they to set up? We will be bringing tents from the equipment locker and setting them up at Como Park.

This is a great program for you if you want to know more about tents, or if you want to see what our equipment is like. You will have the opportunity to see a variety and set them up when it is not nighttime in the woods or raining. You can learn more about setting up a tent or you can help someone new learn how to set up a tent. You may have a better idea which tent you want to use on your next Rover adventure.

This will also help our equipment gurus inspect tents to be sure they are not in need of repair and that all of the pieces are there.

After the meeting we will socialize at Gabe's by the Park.
