Cookoff to be held Saturday

The Old West will come to life this weekend at the Saints’ Roost Museum during the 23rd annual Col. Charles Goodnight Chuckwagon Cookoff this Saturday, September 23, and tickets are going fast.

Thirteen wagons are scheduled to compete for top prizes, and other activities include live entertainment, museum tours, and the Western tradeshow.

The wagon teams will arrive Friday to host area students for a day of learning about the chuckwagon and cooking the cowboy-way. Friday afternoon will also include the junior cookoff, which pairs kids, ages 8-17, with mentors on participating wagon teams to learn the ropes of cooking over an open fire.

The big day for the cookoff will be Saturday when the wagons square off to battle for top prizes. The tradeshow starts at 10 a.m., and museum tours will be available throughout the day. Local and area entertainers will also be performing.

The authentic wagons will serve at 1 p.m. with the traditional chicken fried steak dinner, and other activities will include a hay auction and the Goodnight family reunion.

Admission is free. Tickets for the Chuckwagon meal are $15 each and can be purchased in advance at Every Nook & Cranny or by calling (806)874-2746.
