Rigorous training exercises and secret planning meetings will pay off for the 2GF team again this year when they take on their arch enemies the Clarence Valley Independent scribes serving up a wicked menu at the annual Jacaranda Thursday breakfast on 2 November in Market Square.
The annual food fight between the DJs and the scribes has reached climatic highs and battle lines have been well and truly drawn.
2GF manager Paul Covington has prepared his team drawing on many years of experience and says his team is ready to fire.
“The 2GF Jacaranda Breakfast has been the traditional start to Jacaranda Thursday celebrations for more than 40 years,” Mr Covington said. “The challenge is out again to the Clarence Valley Independent to see which team can cook and serve sausages and eggs the quickest and the best.”
Local businesses have again thrown their support behind the breakfast donating goods and services to help feed 3000 early morning revellers.
“We are cooking up sausages from Holiday Coast Meats and eggs from Mid Coast eggs on Elgas barbecues served on Tip Top bread from Woolworths,” Mr Covington said. “Farmer Lous will once again have a range of fresh fruit to sample and Norco has promised to wash it all down with fresh local milk.”
Other helpers include Grafton Hire which has a team who arrive early to set up tables and other equipment.
Be early as we start serving at 6am sharp and latecomers may miss out,” warned Mr Covington. “Unfortunately we had to send some punters away hungry last year as everything was gobbled up well before 8.30am.”
