Everybody's in pink! Gotta love this kiddo's pink hair and boa!
These ladies are ready to dance & have fun!
Cooks from all across West Texas, Southeastern New Mexico (Hobbs is in the house!), and from as far away as Rapid City, South Dakota are working as hard as they can to make the best chili and barbeque!
There's all kinds of transportation to get folks around to all the camps and cookers in Midland!
It's time to judge chili, and the guy on the right needs another bite to make up his mind on this particular entry.
West Texas Oilees of Midland take the Barbeque Grand Championship! Keith Patton of Odessa wins 1st in Chili! Congratulations to all the winners and Thanks to all the cooks who came out and made this the biggest Breast Cancer Awareness Cookoff yet!
We salute Patsy Childress (left), who, along with her husband Lee Roy, started this cookoff 15 years ago. Her indomitable spirit and tireless efforts have made this cookoff the largest in West Texas, raising over $450,000.00 in 15 years to benefit charities that help those who battle cancer every day.
Boomer would like to say Thanks to Patsy and all the great folks who made this year's
cookoff the best ever!
