2020 Rules and Regulations

OFFICIAL RULES AND REGULATIONS FOR 2020 COMPETITORS

The One Team – One Fight Organization, a 501c3 not for Profit Corporation, will be hosting our 4th ANNUAL FIRST RESPONDER’S CRAWFISH BOIL COOK-OFF. This is a charitable event, with all proceeds going to support the first responders of St. Charles Parish. Last year’s event we raised $18,000, which went towards equipment and education needed to help our first responders and hope to raise more money this year. Considering the many recent tragedies involving law enforcement officers, firefighters, & EMS, along with the severe and disastrous weather in the region lately, our first responders have truly been put to the test.

The purpose of this event is to raise funds to give back to those that give so much of themselves to us daily. Most volunteer their own time, no questions asked, to provide the safety needed throughout the parish. We will provide an entertaining event for all to enjoy and a good-natured competition for those in the community who wish to prove they have the BEST BOILED CRAWFISH!!!

TEAM ENTRY:

A fully completed entry form and fee must be submitted before April 1, 2020. This year’s fee is a flat entry fee of $200.

This entrance fee is NON-REFUNDABLE for those teams that are accepted into the competition.
