Pre-Race Grilling Contest

Portland, CT 06480

There will be a pre-race grilling contest held at the Portland Marina campgrounds the Friday night before the raft race. Raft racers that are camping overnight are welcome to submit their favorite grilled homemade food in the contest. Other participants, who are not camping overnight, may also join the fun by bringing their own delicacies to share such as a dessert item, appetizer, or refreshing beverage to share with the group.

This is a really fun pre-race activity that all will enjoy! The rules are simple: the food must be cooked on a grill over an open flame. The winner will be chosen based upon who receives the highest number of votes. Voters will consist of all who submitted food into the contest and random ten other “testers” in the campground. The winning grill-master will receive a customized Bobby Flay commemorative spatula and some well deserved bragging rights!

Contest coordinators are Captain Gretchen and first mate Shawna from the “All Day Suckers” raft.
