Suffolk Chilli Fest

Sorry but I kind of hijacked the other thread (probably a good thing) so I figured I'd start a new thread. If any one lives around the Tidewater Virginia area our club is holding a Chili Fest/ Cook Off in Suffolk Va. on April 10th. The proceeds go to benefit local children with speech and hearing impairments. For more information or if you would like to send a donation please click on the link provided. We aslo are having a Cornhole competition which if your interested please let me know. We are also looking to sign up anyone who wants to enter the cook off.

LOL!

I have been building graphs all day and the Y access on all of them requires millions as the title. Sometimes I spelled it with two L's and sometimes one.

This letter combo after time makes you go cross eye:

Re: Suffolk Chilli Fest

Well tomorrow is the day and if anyone wants to come out I'll be happy to buy them a beer. Also I'd like to thank everyone who donated money to our club and we will use the money to help a child who has a hearing or speech problem. Looks like we have sold around 600 to 700 tickets so we could have well over a thousand people and I'm not sure if the guys know what its like to handle a crowd of that size. I have done something like this for anothe club and I have given them warning but not sure if it really sank in. I'll let you know how things go.

I will take a few pics if I remember my camera. As a club we will get plenty of pics because we have one person who is in charge of taking pics at any of our events.

Re: Suffolk Chilli Fest

Thanks. The weather will be perfect, we have sold a bunch of tickets, we have 20 chili teams (thats 10 more then last year), the beer truck is coming, the band is good, so I think we are all set. I just have 500 hot dogs and 500 brats to cook tomorrow so I'll be busy but they were donated so its all profit. I think this year we got this event over the hump. I'll let you guys know Monday.

I was going to say last weekend was probably a bit too hot, Chili is the last thing I want on a 90 degree day.

You usually don't grill chili, so I doubt it.

Re: Suffolk Chilli Fest

The paper gave us a pretty good write up but I wish they posted more picks of the crowd.
