Attention All Cooks.
Fourth of July is Sunday, which means a 3-day weekend for many folks, and there are lots of cookoffs scheduled. Therefore, I am sending out a challenge. If you attend any one of the cookoffs, please take pictures of the cooks and/or booths all decked out in patriotic paraphernalia! Your pictures can be of cooks having fun, cooking, or doing show; be creative. If you see anyone with the charities helping with the cookoff either by selling raffle tickets, helping in registration or in the judging area take pictures of them as well. Let everyone see that the charities are involved. I would like to have a lot of Red, White and Blue in the August Trails!! And don’t forget the articles too! Write a short paragraph or two about how much fun everyone had. Let’s see what you can do.

OK folks, here’s some info a new CCO in Pasadena, TX. Plenty of RV parking (dry) and a really great lodge. Stacey can use some donations for the silent auction. Let her know if you’re able to bring some goodies. Note the dinner on Friday nite. Their kitchen is top notch. I’ve had the steaks before and they are very good. See yas there.
From Elton Homesley:
The great Marathon Texas chili cookoff weekend is coming up next weekend (July 3rd and July 4th). Both days have a Lloyd Goldwire bronze trophy. Saturday (July 3rd) is the Cowboy CCO and the trophy is a bronze cowboy hat. Sunday (July 4th) is the Mustang CCO and the trophy is a running mustang. July 4th weekend this year is the Marathon homecoming weekend and there should be a great crowd in town. There is another big dance on Saturday night out at the "Post" and everyone is welcome. See the Trails or the CASI website for more details in the "Upcomings" listings. There is a cooks party planned on Friday night at the Marathon RV park. And on Saturday Boomer Kingston will be our Emcee. Hope to see a lot of you there.
