Lake Havasu Boat Show and Chili Cookoff - April 12, 2014 

We are beginning the initial planning stages for this ICS sanctioned cookoff which will include traditional red, chili verde and salsa.  We already have 2 cooks signed up and expect many more before the “big sell-out” (just kidding-there’s plenty of space!).   Bob Brown, the director and promoter of the annual Boat Show, which draws over 5,000 spectators, invited us to partner with him once again.  We expect a great public turn-out since the cookoff site is basically in the midst of this huge boat show, and you’ll be able to park your vehicles very close to your booths (except RV’s of course).

Our very first priority was to establish the prize money (our goal is to obtain sponsorship to cover $1500 first place in red chili with more and better prize money for all three categories) and we’ve got that accomplished!!


1st - $1000

2nd - $500

3rd - $300

4th - $200

5th - $100


1st - $300

2nd - $200

3rd - $100


100% of entry fees

People’s Choice:

1st - $100

2nd - $5

(May be increased!)

We will have flyers available in the next couple of months with all of the details and information you’ll need to sign up, including special hotel and campground rates.  We would like this cookoff to be a total success as it was in the past and appreciate your participation and support.  If you liked Palm Springs, you’ll love Lake Havasu!  The weather will be absolutely perfect, and there are tons of fantastic things to do and see in this beautiful city over the weekend.
