Come join ACEL’s annual fall BBQ and potluck! We will be serving burgers and hot dogs. We will have three contests throughout the event:
Water balloon toss: Everyone is grouped into pairs and tosses water balloons at each other. Each successful throw requires a step back. Last one surviving and farthest distance wins.
Watermelon Eating Contest: You are given a 1/8th slice of watermelon and race to see who finishes their slices. There will be a kids contest and an adult contest.
Food Judging Contest: Your dish will be given a number and throughout the day, people can vote by ballot their favorite side dishes.
Prizes will be given to each contest winner (More Info)
