Just back from the opening.

Great job Bob!!!

Much more space to move around....and it was even level. Didn't have to watch every step.

Saw dozens of friends and acquaintances.

Seems like there's more/better food vendors.

Margarita contest was well provisioned and attended. Had to jockey to get to the servers. Even got a hug from the Just Chillin' representative.

Lots to see and buy.

Good and it seems continuous entertainment..

Might even go again tomorrow for the chili.

Thanks for the kudos Sunfan. Moving our venue proved to be a success albeit fraught with challenges.

With our later closing time, today's party started at 5:00pm when the Time Machine took the stage. What a great time indeed.

Saturday we have Mike & the Suspects on the main stage from 5:00pm to 7:00pm so for those who like to dance and party, best to come a little later in the day and rock with us to the end!!!!!

Thanks to everyone who attended today. It looks like we may have broken a few records. We hope to see everyone again tomorrow.

What's Sunday"s opening time. Looking forward to it. Congrats. Have a feeling my Sunday will be almost entirely fueled by coffee. I'll have a body clock to reset after the "red eye". Any coffee at the cook off ?

We volunteered and attended Friday and it was great! I love the new venue, although it takes some getting used to if you had the old set up memorized. It's a good chance to use my few remaining brain cells. The tiangis in the back has tons of beautiful things. We are returning to party today. Oh and do some shopping.

I read that all 3 days were chilli and margarita tasting but 2 people I know who went on Friday said it was only the margarita tasting going on and no chilli.

The Events calender on the Chili Cook-off website stated the margarita tasting on Friday and chili on Sat/Sun. We're going today and I have been trying to get into the calender this morning and can't because of "exceeding bandwidth"...can anyone post today's events or perhaps fix the website?

Laura still has great chili, and the Hamburg's with fried onions reminded me of the PNE/CNE, had great fun manning the beer tent. had to wait until 6:00 for my first rum, great job to all the organizers.

Another fabulous day on Saturday. We had a record attendance. We had 400 people go through the chili competition in under 2 hours. Today's competition starts at noon and I recommend you get there early to get a taste

The website is working again. www.mexicannationalchilicookoff.com

Todays headliner is Psychostasia. They will be on the main stage at 3:15pm.

Hope to see everyone there again today.

LOVED the new location. Huge improvement. I only had time to spin through there for an hour today, but it appeared to me to be going really well. Congrats to all the people involved who put in so much work. Pat yourselves on the back. Good job.

My wife worked for Love In Action and reports that they did really well and the crowds were great this year.

I have to say, though, some of the bands weren't so hot. For example, the Mariachis.

The new layout is excellent although the Tianquis seemed somewhat out of the flow and poorly attended. The other booths were pretty busy.

All in all, a great job by the Board and volunteers!
