The Moore Community Improvement Club is clarifying this week that the entry fee for its barbecue cookoff event is $75 for its Summerfest event on July 9 and 10.
Cookoff contestants will set up for their night of barbequing with a chief cook meeting to follow on Friday, July 9. Anyone interested in participating in the BBQ Brisket cookoff can contact Booby Evans at (830) 355-7564, Jesse Carrasco at (210) 326-6320 or Shelley Delgado at (210)889-9350 to receive the official rules and regulations of the contest as well as to submit your payment. The entry fee is $75 and all contestants will need to provide their own equipment and raw brisket meat.
Briskets will be judged on Saturday, July 10, along with numerous other activities. The MCIC will be hosting a sausage plate sale. Tickets are $8 pre-sale and $10 on the day of the sale. Call Laura Dominguez at (210) 947-5629 to purchase pre-sale tickets.
There will be a cornhole tournament and small prizes for ticketed carnival games and cash prizes for the tournament and cook-off will also be awarded.
“The cook-off contest winner will receive thirty percent of the total money raised from the cook-off entries,” MCIC representative Shelley Delgado said. “So, the more people that sign up and participate, the more the winnings will be!
“Another thing to note is that there will be a few vendors on site to sell items including, but not limited to, food, services, and/or products.”
Anyone interested in being a vendor can call Shelley Delgado at (210) 889-9350 or Laura Dominguez at (210) 947-5629 for the official rules and regulations as well as to submit the $40 entry fee. Items will also be offered in a silent auction.
The MCIC is also still hosting its food distribution service, the Moore Senior Box Program. The group is still working with residents to enroll them in the food distribution program for the elderly. Call (830) 931-1740 to sign up. Additional Frio County commodities are available by calling (830) 931-1740 and to be added to the list.
The next MCIC meeting is June 2 at 7 p.m. at the Moore Community Center.
“It is not too late to join the Summer Fest committee and we highly encourage anyone with any ideas or questions to attend and/or contact one of our Club Officers with inquiries,” Delgado said.
