Coupons must be used for all sampling -- teams found in violation of this policy will be disqualified.

The People's Choice category will be awarded based on samples sold (using a coupon count). The cook-off will be judged by KCBS officials on Saturday, June 21 at Noon.

The Extreme Bullriding Tour will also be a part of this event.

Entry fees begin at $150 per team. For an entry form, or more information, call Rick Hinman at (402) 441-6545 or e-mail rhinman@lancastereventcenter.com.
