SUNDAY - Apr. 18, 2010


Sunday, May 2, 2010 the day after California State.

Hosted by the Lancaster & Rosamont Chamber of Commerce at Antelope Valley Fairgrounds. In conjunction with the cookoff there will be an Antique Car Show, Remote-Controlled Electric Airplanes: Build Your Model Plane and Flea Market. If memory serves me right last year the Flea Market was huge. So if you have been unable to find that precious heirloom that you just can't live without it will probably be there! Also lots of vendors with chow and other goodies. There is an RV park with full hookups right there on the Fairgrounds. I've once again been in contact with my buddies down at Area 86 to see if I can get them to fire up their Biogrephressurewhethercomptoller to prevent any untoward atmospheric disturbances (I do not want to use the W Word). If for some reason the boys at Area 86 can't get the darn thing to work our host is working on getting the cooks in a protected area. I know that some of you will say it's just a district why bother. But here's some good reason for you to bother. A district win will get you a free ride to last chance at the World. And our current World Champion came from last chance. Double district win means you cook in the WCCC, and believe me I have hung many double district signs at the World. Now if that doesn't get your motor running, the MONEY well!

Travelin' Chiliheads News


Although the following may seem presumptuous,

we wanted to share it with our many chili friends.


A new experience for us is that on Monday, April 19, 2010,

we will be in the audience of Dancing with the Stars

(8 p.m. Eastern/Pacific Time Zones and 7 p.m. Central/Mountain Time Zones).

Barbara's daughter Deanna, who is a real estate lawyer for Disney,

was able to get us tickets.

Deanna informed us that we are on the Disney VIP list

which we hope means good seats in camera range!


Travelin' Chiliheads,

Charlie & Barbara Ward


P.S. We will not be wearing our chili cookoff apparel!
