Not only are the teams judged on their chili, they are also judged on presentation, team spirit, costumes, most creative tent and the most original theme. Teams can be made up of friends, co-workers, relatives, clubs or anyone who likes to have a good time and has a great chili recipe. The entry fee is $40 if you register by Friday, September 18th. Team registrations will be accepted, as space is available for $50 until October 2nd. Registration forms can be downloaded at www.tupelomainstreet.com or picked up at the DTMSA office- 108 S.
