The Elkton Community Education Center



The First  Western Oregon Solar Cookoff




On Saturday, August 7, 2010 from 10 AM-6 PM, 15850 State Hwy 38, Elkton, Oregon, 97436, the Elkton Community Education Center (ECEC) invites you and your family to the solar south facing bluff, overlooking the historic Fort Umpqua on the beautiful Umpqua River to experience a day of solar cooking demonstration.

The solar cooking demonstration is just one of the many activities scheduled at the ECEC during the SOLAR COOKOFF.  Activities include solar cooking demonstrations on various solar cookers, solar workshops (build your own solar oven), sample solar cooked food, solar speakers, solar information, hiking, swimming, live music, open microphone, or just meandering around the lovely ECEC campus. Many raffle prizes are available, including a chance to win a GLOBAL SUN OVEN, the ultimate solar appliance.

Solar cooking has been utilized for centuries.  Let it be solar dehydrators to preserve fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, or the solar evaporators used to make salt from sea water on the volcanic rocks of Kona, solar energy has provided the earth with free energy since the very first sunrise.  Solar cookers help you harness the power of the sun.  One source of power that never fails is the light of the sun.  Whether you are dealing with a power outage, or just plain conserving energy, solar cookers can cook anything that can be baked in a conventional oven.  Solar cookers can be described as a solar fired crock pot.


For additional information about the ECEC Solar Cookoff, please contact: Gregory Flick, 541 584 2757.  Email:  we welcome sponsors, vendors, speakers, and musicians to share in the fun.  Bring your solar cooker and be a part of International Solar Cookoff Day at the ECEC.  We can become energy independent, one BTU at a time.

Sincerely, Gregory Flick.  ECEC Board Member, Solar Advocate.
