This year's 40th Annual Chili Super Bowl and Brisket Cook Off is needing your help. All donations and volunteers are welcomed. My next-door neighbor, friend, and Chili Board member G.T. Ward just told me that "we are needing sponsors, auction items, cook bag swag, volunteers, and this year we need bottled water. If you can help, tell them to call me please."

So here goes, my friend and neighbor GT Ward can be reached at 325-669-6200 or by calling the Ben Richey Boys Ranch at 325-692-2500. G.T. went on to say "if they want to email me, send it to eaglebbq@att.net.

That said, be aware that the 40th Annual Chili Super Bowl and Brisket Cook Off is Labor Day weekend Saturday, September 3rd, and Sunday, September 4th in beautiful Buffalo Gap. This year's event will take place at the Old Settlers Camp Grounds at 100 Vine Street in Buffalo Gap.
