Hello Pamela,

Yeap, Try Eric Ackerson, he works at Quality Foods. He is the current president.

For those that want to know what it is:
The Cook Off is a fundraiser organized by the Texas Society, the funds raised are used to benefit various island charitable groups. The Texas Society, a group of Texas transplants to the Virgin Islands, set up a branch of the Chili Appreciation Society in St. Thomas and every year they have the Chili Cook Off. Participants in the Cook Off are numerous; often there are some 30 booths. Participants serve mild chili, hot chili, vege-chili, super hot and on and on. The booths are sponsored by hotels, individuals, restaurants and during election time even senators! Chili is the main theme but there are a few booths with beer among other drinks like soda and water of course! Games for children & adults like tug-of-war & water baloon toss. Lots of fun for the entire family!!

Location: Bolongo Bay
Start: 12noon
Island: St. Thomas
