Texas Society of the Virgin Islands Holds Chili Cook-Off

 

The 28th annual Texas Society of the Virgin Islands Chili Cook-Off will be held from noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 19, at Brewers Beach. Come join the fun for a day of live music, a Coast Guard rescue demonstration and fly-by, games for children and adults, and lots of spicy chili on the beach. Coors Light and Captain Morgan, sodas, juices and water will be available as well as Domino’s Pizza slices and collectible event T-shirts. Large-prize raffle tickets can be purchased prior to the event (winners do not have to be present to win). Be cool; don’t bring a cooler to this fundraiser for local charities. Convenient parking in the Reichhold Center lot will be available for a nominal donation.
New for this year’s cook-off is the addition of a locals-only competition. Trophies and Chili Appreciation Society International (CASI) points will be awarded to the top 10 cooks in the CASI competition. For the local competition, the top ten chili cooks, top three vegetarian chili cooks and top three large and small showmanship teams will be awarded a trophy and prizes donated by local businesses. All donated gifts will go to local cooks. Cooks start as early as daybreak.
One Virgin Islands winner will be sent to represent the Virgin Pod at the national cook-off in Terlingua, Texas, courtesy of American Airlines. A $35 entry fee per cook includes entry in both competitions, a 10’x10’ spot on the beach, a case of Coors Light, a case of water, 10 pounds of free meat to cook at the event donated by Merchant’s Market, an event T-shirt and tasting supplies.
More than 5,000 attendees and over 50 cooks are expected. Those who want to participate can still help with this huge event. Volunteers are needed throughout the day, including bar attendants, T-shirt and ticket sales and more. All proceeds are donated to local charities.
Call Lori at 474-0019 or e-mail lori@lookingglassvi.com for event and registration information.
