Entries accepted for Feb. 1 Battle For the Paddle Chili Cook-Off

Entries are being accepted for the annual Battle For The Paddle Chili Cook-Off, set for Feb. 1 during Northwestern State’s Southland Conference basketball doubleheader against Central Arkansas.

There are two team packages available for interested cooks.

The $20 package includes a team entry into the cook-off and four general admission tickets to both games against Central Arkansas, beginning with the 1 p.m. women’s game.

The $100 package includes a spot in the cook-off and 25 general admission tickets to the doubleheader.

Every person who attends the doubleheader is invited to sample free chili from all entered teams and will receive a ticket to vote for their favorite cook. Additional tickets for voting will be sold with portions of the proceeds – as well as contest entry fees — going to the local chapter of the American Cancer Society.

For more information or to enter a team, contact Tori Thompson at thompsonda@nsula.edu or Mike Jacklich at 318-357-4268.
