TUESDAY - Dec. 29, 2009



JAN. 16 2010

Its is still not too late to sign up for the Forsyth, IL. Regional.

Chairman "Hap" Gilbert (Mayor of Forsyth) has again put together another great venue.

We will again be cooking in the beautiful Hickory Point Mall in the rotunda area in front of Bergner's as in the past few years.

Tables and chairs will be furnished. You will need to bring all your other cooking devices and supply's.

Decorating your booth area is highly recommended.

Not only will we be doing Red, Verde, and Salsa, but there will also be a Celebrity Crock Pot Cookoff for non ICS members.

In all, we expect around 60 to 70 cooks to help raise funds for the Catholic Charities and the Salvation Army in the Forsyth Area. Last years contest netted more than $7,000 for these charities. Thank You very much Chili Cooks..........You did it!

This years 1st place Red winner will take home $1,200 to use as expense money for the 2010 ICS World's Championship.

Hap has also worked with Kassie Landry (General Manager) of the Homewood Suites and Doug Cekander (General Manager) of Buffalo Wild Wings as well as Jay Nicole of Rays Chilli to provide for an evening of free food, beverages, and hospitality for all our chili contestants in the Lobby of the Homewood Suites immediately following announcements of the winners at the Hickory Point Mall.

As well, Kassie has set up a special account for an Excellent rate at the Homewood Suites of $89 (studio suite) and $99 (1 bedroom suite) ALL rooms have full kitchens including full refer and dishwasher. This a brand new hotel directly behind the Hickory Point Mall.

Most of the out of town cooks will be staying here and then we all get up Sunday Morning and head to Springfield (30 min.) for the Winterfreeze Reg. on Jan. 17.

These are 2 of the best Back to Back cookoffs in the country.

Don't be shut out! ........Join us for a fun weekend.

Below is the info and contact for the Hotel.
