2015 RULES & INSTRUCTIONS
Please turn in money and unsold tickets to Tami Bailey at Grand Lake Medical Park no later than 5:00 on Thursday, October 15, 2015. You are responsible for all tickets that are assigned to you. Ticket prices are $5.00 in advance and $6.00 at the gate. We encourage all team members to purchase a tasting kit so they can taste their opponent’s chili.
SET UP & PARKING:
COMPETITION: Please bring a minimum of 4 gallons of chili and do not serve anyone before 11:00 a.m. Please serve small portions as they have several booths to go to. A bite or two is all that is necessary. Please feel free to ask people for their votes.
TRASH: Please keep your area clean. Trash cans will be provided; however having your own trash bags will be helpful. We are very fortunate to have this facility, so please help to leave the park clean.
JUDGED CHILI: We will have judges totally unknown to any of the participants. A bowl with a lid will be provided for your judged chili. Someone will come around for a sample for your judged chili to take to the Judges. Points for judged chili will be allotted as follows: 25% toward aroma, 25% for looks, 25% for taste and 25% for aftertaste. The food lines should be completed by 2:00 p.m. At that time, your People’s Choice vote containers will be collected.
PEOPLE’S CHOICE CHILI: These awards will be determined by the number of pre-sold tickets, tickets (votes) received in your container, and dollars in your container your team receives during the chili cookoff. Make sure your containers are marked with your name on it. People’s Choice will be judged on which team receives the most votes from the public . 1 ticket equals 1 vote. $1 equals 2 votes. Any pre-sold tickets sold by your team count as one vote per each ticket sold. This is a fundraiser and you are most definitely encouraged to bribe people or do whatever is necessary to put money into your containers. The main thing is not get too serious and HAVE FUN!!
LIONS LAIR AWARD: The team that exhibits the most spirit and showmanship, along with their booth decorations and costumes.
BEST TAILGATE FOOD: There will be a booth to turn in your Tailgate Food. This food will be judged for 1st Place. We ask that you bring at least 50 bites and we will sell the excess for $1.00 for two bites.
AWARDS AND PRESENTATIONS: Plaques and Cash awards will be presented at 2:30 or as soon as the judging has been tabulated. Please have your team available for the awards and pictures at that time.
ENTRY FEES: Entry Fees are $25.00 per chili team and $10.00 to enter for Tailgate Food. These fees are due at sign-up and are non-refundable. If a team does not show up, the fee will be considered a donation to the South Grand Lake Lions Club.
