Brad brought bacon. RAH won the Golden Ladle. The End.

Well, there was more to it than that. The Bikers welcomed us with open arms. Scratch got us set up with electrical for our roaster pan; Karma made sure we had plenty of soup cups; Lurch made sure none of the other chefs intimidated us; and Turtle complimented us sheepishly on our presentation. Then the people came. And came back. Our Saddlebag Potato soup was so good, there were murmurs in the room about it. But with the toppings of shredded cheddar, bacon crumbles and green onion, it was great.
.... And now, the 2022 CHAMPION SOUP!
RAH must defend our Golden Ladle in 2023. Perhaps we can divide and conquer by putting together two teams, creating two soups, and keeping the championship trophy for another year! The Jaycees already told us via facebook they are coming for it. Go RAH!
