The International Chili Society (ICS) is pleased to announce that the GRAND SIERRA RESORT (GSR) in Reno, Nevada, is the location for the 2015 World’s Championship Chili Cookoff (WCCC), scheduled for October 16-18. The GSR is located only 2 miles from the Reno airport with a shuttle running every half hour. All activities of the WCCC will be on site at the resort!
Near Lake Tahoe, nestled in the heart of the Truckee Meadows, lies Reno-Tahoe and at its center is the Grand Sierra Resort. The GSR has nearly 2,000 hotel rooms, a 100,000 square foot casino floor – the largest, most open casino floor in northern Nevada, eleven dining options to satisfy even the most discerning taste buds, and plenty of fun for family and friends with FunQuest, Grand Adventure Land and bowling. The resort has 10 bars and lounges, and Country Nights in the William Hill Race and Sports Book.
The Grand Sierra Resort is offering extremely low room rates for participants and as incentive to stay at their property, GSR will waive the required Participation/Facility Fee to cooks booking accommodations at their property. Further information and details are posted at www.chilicookoff.com in the LATEST NEWS BOX.
See you in Reno!

Let’s get going and share some pictures (up to ten per post) from your cookoff on our blog! Taking a picture and sharing it allows other people to see the world through your eyes. It's not about who is in the picture or the background. It's about the memories and meanings it holds. What a great way for others to experience the fun at a chili cookoff! Be sure to caption the picture, be it winners of the cookoff, charity donations, or just something you enjoyed! And go ahead and send us information about your event before it takes place, like hotel info, directions, prize money, plea for more cooks, etc and when all is said and done, the final write-up/results of your cookoff! What fun it will be to see what’s happening at each other’s event! Send your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
