    Default Need help with Chili Contest

    We're a small rural dept. in northwestern wisconsin and after attending a clam chowder contest while on vacation in florida, i figured a fire dept. chili making contest would be a good fundraiser. we're planning a sportsman's raffle and chili contest this fall. so far i'm planning on inviting the area restaurants to be the contestants, and charging the public a few bucks to sample chili and of course buy raffle tickets for prizes. i've thought about using people from the town board, sheriff's dept, the fire chief and a DNR rep as the judges, and having plaques as prizes that the restaurants could proudly display at their bar. any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Lightbulb here's an idea

    this is just an idea but maybe you could also allow the local civilias and members from other depts or even depts as a team to enter and of course charge an entry fee and there can be the judges you spoke of and then the public tasting. i just figured if the public had the chance to get involved with the cooking then you'd have a better turn out. you can even have dif age groups if enough enter you can have teens, adults and seniors and dif prizes for each....................
    there is nothing stronger than the heart of a volunteer!!
