Team Cramp Fall Y2K' Ride and Chili Cookoff

RP Chili King Again!


Judges aren't too sure about this entry?


Thanks to all who participated in the cook-off! We had 14 entries this year in three categories (Chili, Beans, and Mystery). (And, by the way, the entries were categorized by the judges, so it's possible that while you may have thought you made chili, the judges may have thought otherwise!) Special thanks to Ed Davis, Frank Davis, Jack Huggins, and Superstar Heidi Murphy for serving as this year's judges, and to Bill Evans for his able assistance!

Congratulations to this year's winners: In the Mystery Category, Dru Phelps won hands down with a delicious crawfish etouffe. The Mystery runner-up was Randy Heideman with a truly creative pot of turtle soup dressed with teeth and cap. Fritz Wieghat was the winner in the Beans Category, returning the title to Grimes County, with Bill Newkirk (and his assistant J.R. Ott) as runners up. Randy Porter (the 1998 Chili Champion) took the Chili Championship Title again for 2000! The runner up in the Chili Category was the 1999 winner Mike Hance. The Best Dressed Title this year went to Kevin Felle, who was last seen riding into the sunset wearing his six shooter and vowing never to remove his tiara!
