Holiday Savage Run – 1st Annual Event

Sunday, December 18, 2022 – 6 am – Lake Eola

I want to make this event a fun bad ass event! Please bring your favorite Tri Club shirt and enjoy the 6 laps challenge. Make sure to bring a gel, electrolytes and water!

CFL Tri Club Holiday Party – Dec 18, 2022 – 5:00 pm

e to show off your culinary streak by whipping up some family delicacy, or something holiday themed. It’s a laid back contest where everyone is the judge. 

There will be three categories of prizes – 

  1. Most Creative/Best Holiday Theme
  2. Best Tasting Food or Drink
  3. Best Tasting Dessert

We have hosted this party in the past, and had some great entries, like “Dasher’s Disaster”, meatloaf shaped like a reindeer that had been run over by a Jeep, or “Whoa, Whoa, WHOA!”, a complete gingerbread house with Santa and his reindeer piled up on the front lawn. 

You are not required to bring a homemade dish, and don’t worry, if you just want to bring something store bought; that’s fine too. 

For you competitors, here are a few hints – 

  1. Make your dish easy to eat. Finger foods works well, or something that is easy to divide up.
  2. Make enough food, but smaller portions, I’m sure there will be a lot to eat.
  3. Bring what you need to serve your food, and serving utensils. 
  4. This is one party where arriving early is preferable. Food should be presented and ready to eat at 5:30, as judging will commence at that time.
  5. Seconds and thirds are encouraged, especially when trying to decide on who to vote for but let everyone get a taste…no fair trying to eat all of the competition.

Here is a hint for the more competitive in the bunch: Making it “showy” with a cute name – it tends to influence the judges. 🙂

There will be trivia awards too!!!
