Texas Potjie Festival 2009

The Texas Potjie Festival 2009 is only 4 months away! Before we know it we’ll be sokkie-ing and kuier-ing together again over the Labor Day Weekend.

A few weeks ago the Texas Potjie Committee met up at the KOA campgrounds in Rusk, TX to discuss this year’s gathering.  Going up there just reaffirmed to us how nice the facilities and the surroundings actually are.  We just can’t wait for this year’s Potjie.

If you haven’t booked—do so now!!! Go to the Potjie website at www.texaspotjie.com to get the details.

We have decided that this year’s Set Category is BEEF.  So start getting your best recipes together and start practicing for this year’s Cook-off.

Besides the set category there are three other types of potjiekos one can submit for judging.  The Open Category includes all entrée dishes that are not beef—such as chicken, lamb, pork etc.  Then there is the bread category and finally the dessert category.

On the Saturday is the coveted Best in Boerewors in Texas Competition.   So start tweaking your favorite Boerewors recipes as well.

For the kids we have planned activities such as the watermelon eating contest, an outdoor movie night, and a piñata jamboree.  Of course we will also be having the cricket and touch-rugby friendly for all to participate in as well. And then of course there is the sokkie on Saturday night.

Lastly like in 2008, there will be an Afrikaans Kerkdiens led by Ds. Botha in the hall.

See you there!

Groete,

The Texas Potjie Festival Committee
