Judging Info

Similar to the International Karaoke Competition and starting with the lodges, moving to the District competition, and then to the State level to get to the International Competition, we are going to have a VMA Chili Cook-Off to get a winner to send this year to the "Heart of the Community" Moosehaven Chili Cook-off to be held Saturday, November 10, 2018.

Attached are several sheets explaining the competition rules for the VMA State level of competition which emulates the International Chili Society rules used at Moosehaven. The packet includes flyers for your use if desired or you can create your own flyer to advertise your event.

We want the District Presidents to handle and run the local Lodge competitions. Please send an email to all the Lodges in your district to get them on board to participate and send their winner to a District Competition. Any unit of the Lodge is eligible to participate (e.g. LOOM, WOTM, MLC, and FELLOW) and must be a member in good standing.

If individuals hold multiple memberships, they may participate in their home lodge event and can only be the winner of one District. Lodge winners will then participate in a District competition.

If Lodges do not want to have a Lodge competition then it will be up to the Districts to have a competition to send a winner to the VMA State Chili Cook-off.

On the District level, we recommend that at least 3 gallons of chili be made. The District winners will then go to the VMA State Competition to be held at Lynchburg-South #1727 on September 8, 2018.

The winner of the VMA State Competition will then go to Moosehaven to represent the Virginia Moose Association.

It is up to the District Presidents to use any of the attached sheets and information to assist them and the lodges in their area in running their competition events. It is also up to the lodges and districts if a fee is charged. Of course, it can be an all day event with games, entertainment, etc. The Moosehaven "Heart of the Community" fund raiser for this year is the same as last year - K9sforWarriors.

The name address, email and phone # of the Team Captain winner along with the names of the other team members of each district needs to be sent to Ken Kennedy, VMA Chili Cook-off Chairman by July 30, 2018.
