The final challenge

DALLAS/FORT WORTH – It was the ultimate competition: A washer tournament, chili cookout and bbq cook-off. TEXO’s Young Constructors Council (YCC) combined the association’s final Challenge Cup events this year to heighten the competition at its annual tailgate.

    Held at Lake Grapevine’s Silver Lake Marina, 23 companies battled it out in the barbecue categories and 28 competed for the chief chili prize. More than 500 TEXO members and their families (including pets!) enjoyed food and fun, with raffle prizes and a special kids area offering bounce houses, face painting and archery tag.
    The event benefitted the YCC Scholarship Fund and, in lieu of admission, TEXO requested canned food donations be brought to support the North Texas Food Bank. The cans could be designated to different companies that were battling it out for final TEXO Challenge Cup points. A total of 3,330 canned food items were donated. –mjm
