NEWS & EVENTS
Join us for off-road adventures this summer as we explore the Rockies. Bring your off-road capable vehicle or ride with one of us. As soon as the snow in the high country melts enough to open the trails we will begin scheduling rides. Keep your eyes on this page as well as social media.
Pepperoni Roll Contest
Don't miss one of the best events of the year, the Rocky Mountain Chapter Pepperoni Roll Contest to be held on August 10th at the Grateful Gnome starting at 1pm.
Do you make the best pepperoni rolls, or is your family recipe Almost Heaven? Enter to get your name on the trophy and claim the prize as the Rocky Mountain Champion. Your pepperoni rolls will be served by the Grateful Gnome at our game watches during the football season with a portion of the proceeds going to our Chapter Scholarship. Just want to eat pepperoni rolls, come be a judge!
All Contestants and Judges must be paid up on their $20 2019 WVU Rocky Mountain Alumni dues
A $10 donation to the WVU Rocky Mountain Alumni Chapter at the front door the day of the event gets you a wristband, the opportunity to taste all Pepperoni Roll entries, 3 votes, and a free beer or soda. You will vote for your top three by placing your votes in voting containers
If you plan to be a judge, please RSVP to to pre-register
Entry fee is a $10 donation to our scholarship
To register please email your name and the name of your Pepperoni Rolls [Names must be approved] to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Payment Options: Pay-pal: or Venmo: @Bill-Gray-WVU
Drop off your rolls by 12:00pm on August 10th
Rolls should be cut into roughly 2x2 inch slices (about the width of slightly larger than a slice of pepperoni). You can cut them fresh at the Gnome or bring them pre-cut as long as they are ready by 12:00PM
Estimate that you will need to supply 100, 2x2 -inch slices, which depending on the size of your rolls will determine how many you need to bring. Better to bring too many than not enough. (Example: 6 inch roll cut into 2 inch pieces yields 3 samples. This means you need roughly 33 total for the contest)
Your pepperoni rolls will be made by The Grateful Gnome Sandwich Shoppe & Brewery to be available on game days until next year’s competition!
A portion of the proceeds from each roll sold at games will be donated back to the Chapter Scholarship. Last year the Gnome wrote us a check for $780 from game day sales!
Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place with the Winner’s name engraved on the Championship trophy to be kept on display at the Grateful Gnome
We will be holding a Silent Online Auction to raise money for our endowed scholarship for a student from Colorado who attends WVU. There will be great prizes ranging from sports memorabilia to weekends in the Mountains.
