Most Creative/Unusual
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.
