The Hunger Games Party!!!

Excited about the new The Hunger Games movie?  So are we!  On March 15th, we celebrated by holding a Cornucopia Chef contest.  

If you haven't read the books (and you should!) the cornucopia is the place where all of the weapons and survival gear are kept inside the arena where the participants fight to the death.  At the beginning of the game, they must hurry to the cornucopia and fight each other off to get the supplies they need to compete.  

Awaiting judgement...
Cornucopia Chef is our MUCH less violent version of the same idea.  Different ingredients were concealed under a table cloth in the middle of the room.  Once the table cloth was removed, our "tributes" (participants) had 10 minutes to choose 5 ingredients and make a delicious dish.  

 The top three placers won a pair of tickets to see The Hunger Games movie on opening night.  The first place winner also received all three books and the movie companion.  The winner was very excited about the books because he has only read the second book as it was the only one he could get his hands on!

First place winner!
