Event Overview

Bring five-alarm fun to your corporate outing!

The searing flavors of this fiery festival guarantee that TeamBonding’s Team Work Chili Cook-Off program brings the five-alarm fun to your summer team building outing! Do your team members have a fire in their belly when it comes to their chili recipe? Think they can bring red-hot heat and be crowned chili champion? Then step on up, partners! Show off that chili machismo as you vie for succulent spicy success!

Teams will start out with the basic chili necessities (the meat and tomatoes, if you will). Ye Olde General Store is open for teams to purchase more ingredients. But, teams had better leave their inner-bandito at home. The sheriff keeps a watchful eye and doesn’t take too kindly to sneak-thievin’.

Teams can also negotiate with the hombres from other teams for those last minute needs. But no tusslin’. Sheriff’ll ride you right out of town for that.

If your chili recipe is definitely blue ribbon material, bring it on! Us judges have certainly polished our belt-buckles around a few pots of Texas Red in the past. Shucks, even got some stuck in our cookie dusters. We know good chuck. So make sure your chili is a true hot tamale!

TeamBonding’s Team Work Chili Cook-Off program is both hot and chili con cool!
