10th Annual Buckaroo Dutch Oven Cook-Off Fundraiser!

Nevada Outdoor School celebrated our 15th birthday as we hosted our 10th Annual Buckaroo Dutch Oven Cook Off fundraiser this past Saturday, August 11th where World Champions and beginners came to cook together like old friends!  This year we had 11 teams compete in four different categories including 4 youth teams with team Pickachu West winning 1st place in the youth category with his delicious and well cooked enchiladas. Teams “Bill & Jane’s Wagon Train” and “Prairie Dogs” from Newmont Mining came in strong to compete with their tasty culinary creations to walk away with 1st place in both the Bean Master and the (International Dutch Oven Society (IDOS) categories as well as the most coveted “People’s Choice” Award.
