Scout-O-Rama’s Chili Cook-off Is Next Saturday, April 28 – Still Time To Sign Up
It's almost here, Scout-O-Rama 2018 is Saturday, April 28 and that means tons of delicious chili will be on hand for your consumption during the 3rd annual ICS Chili Cook-off. There's still time to put your chili team together, how good is your recipe?
For the third year in a row, Scout-O-Rama will be hosting the International Chili Society's Chili Cook-off on Saturday, April 28 right after the Scout-O-Rama opening ceremonies. If you're interested in organizing a team and competing with your best traditional “Red Chili” recipe, log on to 4statesSOR.com to download the registration form and check out the rules. Team registration is $25.00. You must be a member of ICS to participate, it only costs $10 to become a member and compete in one event. You can join ICS on their website. Chili cooks are required to prepare 4-5 gallons of Chili at the event to serve to judges and the public. Participation in this event supports Scouting in our community.
Area Scouts are still selling tickets for the cook-off for only $5.00 each. When they sell 10 tickets they earn a Scout-O-Rama t-shirt and other memorabilia, plus a portion of the funds go to support their own troop as well as other Caddo Area Council Scouting programs. Chili Cook-off tickets will also be sold at the Ross Perot Scout Service Center at #24 Lynwood drive in Texarkana, Texas and at the Scout Show of course.
Trophies and cash will be awarded for First, Second and Third place, as well as awards for People's Choice, and Best of Show. All cooks will receive a participation award; something they would be proud to display as recognition for supporting scouting. The first place winner will be eligible to compete in the National Championship ICS Chili Cook-off. Cash awards for this SOR event are $200.00 for 1st place, $75.00 for 2nd place and $50.00 for 3rd place.
