The Night before Chili cook off- a poem

‘Twas the night before chili cook-off

and all through the land

every  Reef Warrior was stirring

no toes in the sand.

The chili’s were cooking

all bubbly in their pots

and in each rum glass

all that was left were the rocks

(and the bottle it was poured  from was safely tucked back in its box)

Each Reef Warrior dreaming

of chili and fun

and of being the winner of the Trophy

There could only be one!

But what in front of my rum- blurred eyes did appear?

A shiny red dress

Worn by some dude with a beard?!

I squinted my eyes

To read the sash

It said “Chili Cook-off Queen”

And I threw back my head and laughed!

And in that moment

Great joy filled my heart

For I knew chili cook-off was here.

And soon we would fill our bellies with chili

And we would all……………

play music!

(what did you think I was going to say????)

A poem by Possum

Thanks to Possum for getting us into the Holiday Spirit-yes this is an official Reef Warrior Holiday!

That’s right boys and girls, chili cook-off is this Saturday 9/24  at Casey’s .

If you are planning on bringing a chili please have it at Casey’s by 5:30 pm, hot and ready to go. Remember to  get your crock pot bag from Gail on Friday. It is a great disguise and is even better for clean-up!

The chili queen will arrive about 6:30 to kick off the festivities and the eating will begin.

It should be a nice evening so we are planning on a movie nite afterward on the sailboat screen.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there.

Don’t forget to come hungry!!!!!
