If you love baking biscuits then a new competition hosted by the Parkes RSL Sub Branch is just for you!
The Anzac biscuit has stood the test of time and making them has become a popular tradition Australians use to commemorate Anzac Day.
The Parkes RSL Sub Branch is running an Anzac biscuit baking competition in the lead-up to Anzac Day this year.
It is a state-wide competition, hosted by sub branches, with Parkes’ returned servicemen and women excited to see locals taking part.
Entries have opened in Parkes and residents of any age from across the shire are invited to enter, get creative and cook up a storm.
The competition will be judged in an adult and a junior section, and participants can submit more than one entry. All entries need to include nine biscuits for judging.
If the cooking itself isn’t enough to entice you, there are some pretty sweet prizes up for grabs for the best biscuits.
The winner of the adult section will receive $200 and the Keith Woodlands Memorial Trophy, and qualify them for the district final. The runner-up will receive $100. The competition is being conducted at three levels – local, district and state.
The junior winner will receive $100 and runner-up $50.
The competition will be conducted under the rules of NSW Health and conditions applicable to Covid-19.
Entry forms are available at the front reception desk at the Parkes Services Club.
The entry fee is $5 and all biscuits must be delivered to the Boulevard Room at the Services Club between 10am and 11.30am on Saturday, 17th April.
