Greetings unto the populace of the Barony Flaming Gryphon!
I am pleased to announce that Havenholde will be hosting a Chili Cookoff as part of the lunch tavern at our upcoming Baronial 12th Night. We will provide toppings, sides and beverages for a nominal fee. There will be several categories, depending on the entries we have, including: Traditional, Vegetarian, Miscellaneous, and, of course, best Hot Chili and best overall. Judging sheets will be provided for each of the entries, and will be conducted as a blind tasting to ensure fairness. The Entrants will be on their Honor not to judge their own chili.
We will have prizes for the winners and, of course, they will have bragging rights as properly befits certified Chili-heads of their standing!...
Please contact Eoin Drake (Robert "Drake" Schneider) at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to enter or have questions regarding the competition. Please include a brief description of your chili, so that the categories can be properly arranged.
May the best chili's win!
