Good morning to all our friends and guests. We hope that you are all doing well. We have received a few contacts about the 54th Annual Terlingua International Chili Championship. At this moment, we are in full swing planning our premier event in the desert. We are looking forward to joining all of you at the Ranch. Another question we received was about advance ticket sales. On July 1, the online ticket site EVENTBRITE will once again be open to purchase discounted tickets for TICC. We look forward to seeing all our friends and family at Rancho CASI de los Chisos for the Championship Chili Cookoff. Take care, have a blessed day and see you all soon.

Good day everyone. In the last week the CASI Board of Directors have been receiving questions and inquiries about the state of affairs concerning cookoffs. Because we are an international organization, we have to take into account the different situations and recommendations across the country. At this time, the recommendation from the Board of Directors is to adhere to your local community, county, state and federal guidelines that are being handed down.
With that being said below are some suggested best practices for upcoming cook offs. While these suggestions are little more time consuming, to err on the side of safety is never a bad idea. We thank you for understanding and help while the Board continues to assess the situation daily and, like all of you, learn to deal with unprecedented challenges not seen before in the history of CASI.
Cookoff organizers/promoters are the parties who ultimately own each event and competition. They will determine if their cook offs will still continue on the dates originally planned or move to a future date. CASI will work with any promoter/organization on their decision about how they choose to proceed.
