    This summer, once again Rock Chef, sponsored by Metal Tech, will putting pots and pans in 4Lo and head up to the mountains.


    This year to celebrate Rubithon’s 30th anniversary, we’re turning the heat to 11...


    Past Rock Chefs will compete for Sierra Gold: Rock Chef Champion of Champions. Past winners will come together to see who is the better cook. Will Ross Woody be finally able to beat Pablo and Mr. Lee? Will Broc muscle his way to a win? This and other questions will be laid to rest this summer.


    The competition will take place on Friday June 23rd at 6:30 pm. Participants have 90 minutes to come up with two savory dishes, plus one dessert and a beverage/cocktail that pairs well with one of the dishes. The secret ingredient will be provided by me at the springs at the event. It will remain a secret until then. In order to make it fair for the teams, the secret ingredient is something that will work with pretty much anything. Think about your recipes, worry about the secret ingredient onsite.


    There will be a panel of 4 judges, plus Eric Agee, the Rubithon Chairman. The rules are pretty much the same as last year. Each entry will be judged in 3 categories. The categories for the food and drink are: Taste, Presentation, & Originality. Taste and creativeness will have a scale of 1 to 5 points. While presentation will max out at 3 points. The winning team will be the one who is able to score the greater amount of points.


    Like before, each team will have its own name and maximum of 3 members. There will be a maximum of 5 teams. Each team must provide all their ingredients, plus all their cooking equipment. Each team will bring their own setup (Cooking table, stove, grill, cookware, lights, ETC). Plus 7" dessert plates, used to serve their creations to the judges.


    There will be a $20 signup fee per judge and per team. All teams must sign up by May 30th and fees are due on on the morning of the event. The winning team gets to keep 100% of the signup fees. In the event of a draw, the prize will be divided evenly between the winning teams. A simple toss of a coin will define who gets the prize. Judges are responsible for their own silverware.


    So, past winners please PM me with your team's name and members. If you know someone who should be a judge, PM me and tell me why, just because she's your wife or girlfriend, mom, ex, ETC, ETC does not qualify. I want a story to tell the day of the event. Judges will be chosen from your replies and the available pool of people the day of the event.


    Metal Tech is sponsoring the event. They will be providing very nice Metal Tech Rock Chef aprons. May the best team win.

    TLCA is in (Tom, the Lady, and the Certified A-hole). I know Phil is in. Looking forward to the best (and maybe last?) Rock Chef.

    PS - I'm not sure how many times Pablo and Mr Lee cooked for Sand Chef, but I thought Pablo won once, and I know we won twice. The key ingredient has been my wife. I sure can't win on my own ;)

    We have received notice that after June 1st, the price for AirMedCare Network “AMCN”, formally CalStar, will be going up even for plan memberships. The new price will be $65 for the entire household. The price for those not a part of Rubithon’s Group will be going up to $85.


    Please feel free to offer this application to your family and friends as well.


    Another item that AMCN advised Rubithon of is that after this year’s event, they will not allow us to send in a check to cover all the participants that signed up for the event. They have advised us that AMCN is now requiring each individual pay for themselves for the household coverage. This means that we will have to change the way we offer registrations for next year, but no need to worry about that for now.


    I am attaching the PDF that has the application to it. If you have any issues, feel free to email me at chairman@rubithon.com and I can email you the PDF directly.


    Thanks for your understanding,

    Eric Agee

    Rubithon Chairman
