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

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!!!!!
