DINNER: $25 - After the event, we put on a big spread at the Paw. This is our "Awards Banquet", although admittedly, the greatest reward is in having completed the day.

The dinner itself is an additional $25 out of pocket, but we've made it great value: Sliced Roast Beef with a Chipotle Molet, Roast Potatoes, Stuffed Chicken Breast, Steamed Veggies, Cranberry Carrot Cake, Brownie, and tea or coffee....Alchohol available at your cost! Try a Dead Frog Nut Brown to rehydrate!
