We wish all of you the greatest good luck at the World’s Championship Chili Cookoff next weekend. We also want to remind you that there will be an outstanding regional cookoff in Southern California on October 13th, the Saturday after the World at Boulder Creek Ranch in Hesperia. If you don’t win in West Virginia, come on out and get qualified for 2013 reeeeeeeeeeal early! The event is held in a beautiful setting and is very well organized and very well received by the public. The chairfolks are concerned that the entries aren’t coming in as well as in the past. Unfortunately, they weren’t able to get flyers out to you before the SoCal cookoffs ended on Labor Day. But they really want and appreciate your participation. Steve Wright has always been Chief Judge of this cookoff; with Steve’s passing last January Bill Ray has taken over as Chief Judge, and I will still be Chief Scorekeeper. Please take a minute to go to the ICS website and let Cameo and Shelley know that you’re planning to support them. We hope to see you there.
Bill and Karen Ray
