If last weekend’s 8th annual Bubba Can Cook event wasn’t the Friends of Grimes County’s best ever, it was really close!
“We had 54 teams show up,” says Friends’ Dianna Westmoreland, “it was just a really good time.” Even through a little rain did come through, nothing disturbed the cook-off attendees.
She also says cook off officials from the IBCA were very impressed this year. And commented to her, “the most fun and organized event [the officials] ever worked with.”
We have to play well with others Westmoreland continues, noting that some teams go to the cook off for fun while others teams are set on going to the IBCA’s championship in St. Louis.
Speaking of which, this year’s top cook is repeat champ, herb batten.
And the $1000 karaoke reward went to Samantha Crow, 2nd place went to Cindy Boose and 3rd to Tracy Cannon.
But for now Westmoreland laughs, all that’s ahead for her is a well-deserved rest.
