I received the following e-mail today from the organizer of the Grand Rapids Turkey Cook-Off, raising funds for Toys for Tots:
ANNOUNCING A NEW CATEGORY...
The Michigan Apple Committee will be sponsoring a Michigan Apple Dessert Category with a first prize of $50! To enter, the recipe must include Michigan Apples and be created on site. We are very excited about this addition to the day's events and thank the Michigan Apple Committee for their support.
For the Junior Champion category (cooks 16 and under), our Junior Champion will go home with their very own grill! A folding charcoal grill has been donated to encourage our young cooks to keep the heat on.
EARLY ENTRY DEADLINE...
Remember that if you enter before October 15, the entry fee is just $25. We are encouraging everyone to pre-register so that we have the proper number of turkeys available on the day of the contest. Michigan Turkey Producers has promised a free turkey to the first twenty teams to register. Entries postmarked after October 15 will need to include a $35 entry fee. Remember...one entry fee enters all of the categories including Junior Champion and Michigan Apple Dessert.
If you are interested in sponsoring the GRTCO or in having either a vendor or informational booth at the Grand Rapids Turkey Cook-Off, please contact us so we can figure out how we can work together to make this a great event for everyone!
For more information, check the website. You can find information on being a judge there too!
Have a marvelous day!
