Hottest/Spiciest
Most Creative/Unusual
Mildest/Wimpiest
Best Presentation/Most Attractive
Grand Prize – Best Over All
• RULES:
• All Chili entries must be at the Chapter House by 11:30 am.
• Set up begins at 11:00 and judging starts at high noon.
• Chili entries must be prepared at home and brought in a slow cooker.
• Be sure to name your chili with a sign! Points will be deducted for nameless chili entries.
• All Chili cooks will be provided with name tags the day of the event.
• Your entry and and decor/signage must fit within a 2ft x 2ft space.
Our golf cart will meet you at the gate to assist in bringing your entry to the chapter house. Please ring door bell!
Wanted: Corn Bread, Dessert and Guacamole Chefs
Take home the title of Cornbread, Salad, Dessert or Guacamole Cook-Off Champion! All entries should be an original creation or enhancement. In other words, your standard Jiffy cornbread dish straight from the box and/or cookies from Target are gonna lose you points. And YES — you can always enter various dishes in different categories.
Wanted: EAA 186 Chili Judges
We need 3-5 judges, so get in on the fun and put your taste buds to the ultimate test!
Tickets are $5 (suggested donation) for those not entered in the contest, bringing food, or judging. We’ll provide all the chili fixings’ and beverages. There’s plenty of space to park your plane or car, so fly-in, or come by car and stay for the whole event.
