Chili Appreciation Society International,

     I don’t even know how to begin to thank you for the very generous
scholarship. The day that I received the letter saying I had won your
scholarship had been a rough day. It was coming near the end of the school
year, and I was very confused and stressed about which university was right
for me and what my future would hold. School had been busy and I had just
lost an important softball game. When I read the letter, I was speechless. My
dad had to take if from my hands to know what it said. I suddenly was calm
and knew everything would be okay now. Because of your scholarship I can
attend my first choice of university. I feel very humbled that out of all the
applications, a small-town Arizona girl was chosen. Thank you so much! I
know it is after all of your hard work that I received it. I will use it wisely.
Thank you for opening a window of opportunity for me.

Thank you,

Natalie Jones.

CASI Foundation,

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for selecting me as a
recipient of your scholarship. I can’t even begin to express how much I
appreciate your help in allowing me to pursue a higher education and to
continue to strive for academic success!

     PARSONS, TN - August 11, 2012, HOT Pod members and many friends of
CASI worked very hard to elevate “Chili, Charity, and Fun” to a new level during
this year’s annual HOT POD COOKOFF at our Ranch. Some of the highlights
     • Six states represented by CASI members, vying to cook the best bowl of red.
     • Top Ten winners from 4 different states
     • Colorful, embroidered beach towels for the winners
     • Swimming pool full of kids and adults
     • Hot tub overflowing with beautiful ladies
     • Food – Food – Food…… featuring…
          Smoked tenderloin from Indiana… Thanks Darin & Tonya!
          Pork ribs, prepared on site by a Tennessee Championship BBQ team!
          Grilled marinated chicken & veggies … thanks Rick Seadler!
          Soon-to-be-famous smoked sausage by Rick Williams!
          Roasted pork butts… thanks Cindy and members of the Wild Turkey
          A 10-POUND Tequila Rose cake!
          Remarkable quantities of every vegetable, fruit, pasta, and desserts to
             suit every desire!
     • Another special treat for everyone was when the area life-flight helicopter
       landed in the front yard for a sample of the championship chili! (This event
       did cause quite a stir in our country neighborhood, but everyone soon
       was alerted that it was a social call and no one had died eating chili!)
     Special thanks to the Wild Turkey Federation Club for judging, and to our faithful
friends and family for all the help in making this 3-day event a success. Preston and
I could not have handled it without you … especially the Knight, Jester, Sharp, and
Seadler crews!
     We enjoy promoting CASI by having our friends at our ranch, and are already
planning for 2013 to be as much fun. (However, Preston insists that the “Shaw
RV Park” may need more that 7 hook-up sites!)
     Again, THANK YOU to all of the cooks, friends, and family, AND a big
congratulations to the Champion, Carol Knight, and the other Top Ten Winners.
     Yall come see us when you can. We will leave the gate open for you! Until
