One of my Terlingua neighbors sent me this film clip. Some of our members might want to view 1939 images of the Big Bend area and its life. This was only 28 years before the cookoff was first held, to give a perspective.

Regional Referees: Please send me the name of the referee that you have assigned to each CCO as soon as you can ahead of the CCO. Jenny Windsor and I are trying to resolve some of the problems that we have had this past year with the referee assigned to a CCO. We will document that referee in CIS once that person has been assigned and then we will know who to contact if there are problems with the Results Package. It will also be away to identify more than one CCO in the same area and may be a way to alert the Regional Referee that we need to make contact with a promoter and work with them to change the date.
It's WEDNESDAY and time to post the CCOs for this weekend. Summer is here! It's time to get out and do some CASI Cooking. Here are your places from which you may choose.
