MONDAY - November 6, 2006

Chiliblast - Florida State; November 4, 2006

On a beautiful (albeit a bit windy) day in Clearwater, on the West Coast (of Florida, for non-Floridians), the 2006 Chiliblast took place at Coachman Park. A great event and a “cooks’ cookoff” in every respect.


The first Florida “qualifier” in the 2007 chili season drew over fifty superb cooks from five states; multiple 2006 WCCC qualifiers, to include three 2006 “Hat Trick” winners and four (4) cooks from each of both the Verde and the Traditional Red 2006 WCCC Finals Tables. Those numbers, among many other facts, speak volumes for the high esteem in which Chairman Doug Roy’s (and the “real power behind the throne” – his lovely bride Carolyn) Florida State Championship is held among ICS members…a highly merited esteem, re-earned by this year’s event.


Now for the results:

In every respect, a great event at a beautiful waterside setting (Intercoastal Waterway). Maximum kudos and “attaboys” to the city of Clearwater, the volunteers and especially, Doug and Carolyn for a superb job.
