2012 New England Regional Chili Cook Off winners!

The 2012 TWO day International Chili Society sanctioned New England Regional Chili Cook Off’s are now in the International Chili Society record books.
This was the first time since the mid 90’s that there was a back to back cook off in New England.
We had cooks from all over the U.S. We also were honored to have quite a few past ICS champions and we crowned some new NERCC Champs as well. There are so many stories from a somewhat windy weekend.

I would be remiss if I didn’t thank a few people.
Steve and Audrey Falkowski for being Chief Judge and Score Keeper on Saturday. Wes Carlson for a great job on being Chief Judge on Sunday and Mary Alice Kropp for being Score Keeper on Sunday. Mary Ellen Weber, Mike and Mary Alice Kropp (on Saturday), Nick and Jo Loddo for their tireless efforts in the judging area all weekend and lastly my wonderful wife Kat for ALL of her help with everything for the past 3 days and more.
When I have the firm amounts of money raised, I will post them….early estimates are VERY good between sponsorships and the gates.
The 2012 TWO day New England Regional Chili Cook Off’s were a HUGE success.
