Chili Cook-Off and Camporee

  • Northcrest Club 3524 Bowling Green Way Doraville, GA, 30340 United States (map)

Come join us for a day of football, tailgating, cornhole, and chili!

 Calling all cooks! Do you have a favorite chili recipe? Do you want to impress your fellow neighbors with your chili cookin’ skills? Look no further than Northcrest Swim and Tennis Club’s first Chili Cook-Off.  

Enter the competition and vie for the GRAND PRIZE of a free 2019 Northcrest Swim and Tennis Club membership! (transferable, but not for resale or cash value) and bragging rights!  If you’re interested in throwing your name in the hat, please register below. ($20 per entry)

Only 20 slots are available!  The first eight slots can use club power for their crock-pot, the remaining contestants must use their own means to keep their chili warm for tasting/consuming.  This contest is open to current members only and no more than 1 per household.  Be sure to sign-up before they are all taken.
More details on what to expect that day and what we’ll need from you will be provided once we confirm your entry.

TASTERS: Come enjoy the chili and other yummy fixins (including chili condiments, cornbread, hot dogs) while helping us determine the best Northcrest Chili Chef! Each member (adult or child) ticket sold will come with 1 voting stub.  Use the link below to purchase your tickets in advance. Ticket prices are  $12/$15/$6 (member/non-member/child).

We'll have the TVs set up for some football viewing and the cornhole boards set up for some friendly competition.  It's a tailgate without the pricey parking or long bathroom lines!

We're also having a beer potluck.  What is a beer potluck, you might ask? It's just like a regular potluck, but with beer! If you so choose, bring some of your favorite beers to share with your neighbors.  Bringing more than one variety is preferred, variety is the spice of life!  Are you a homebrewer?  Let's taste your wares! If you're in the chili cook-off bring a beer that pairs well with your chili! 

Contestants must have their chili ready for tasting/judging by 3pm.

We count the votes and announce our winners at 5pm!

Since the old pavilion will be demolished by the date of the chili cook-off we'll need pop-up tents for shade.  If you have one to lend we would greatly appreciate it!  Please let us know if you can help.  Drop us an email at

Grab your camping gear and set-up your tent in the lower 40 for an evening under the stars! Set-up as early as 12 PM on Saturday the 13th.  General rules for the camporee include:
