Congratulations to Ken Sperry from Harker Heights for his 1st Place Chili win at the Old Soldier's Memorial Chili Cook Off out in Maxdale on December 3rd. Ken is now qualified to cook Behind the Store in Terlingua next November.
We are in the midst of a Polar blast, but temperatures this weekend are supposed to be in the 70 degree range, and free of percipitation too! So, come on out to VFW Post 3377 in Manchaca this Saturday for a little holiday cheer.

Well, that's simple. We cook and promote the Official State Dish of Texas: Chili.
We host about 30 chili events per year at a variety of locations, including the Al Hopkins Tolbert Texas State Chili Championship in Lockhart.
Aside from having a lot of fun, we support a long and varied list of charitable causes like the Hill Country Mission for Health, Cerebral Palsy, and the VFW Scholarship Fund to list just a few. Check the Where We've Been and Why We Do It page for beneficiary details for some of the cookoffs.
Most every weekend! Be sure to check the What's Coming Up page for the details on this week's cookoff!
All over Central Texas! For most events we will have a map and/or directions on how to get to the various locations on the Map Page to help you out.
