2008 IFOCE grits contest September 13

(From comment) IFOCE.com has been updated with information about the return of the Harrah’s Louisiana Downs World Grits Eating Championship to Bossier City, Louisiana on September 13. Like last year, the purse will be $10,000. Registration will open on Wednesday, August 13 at 1pm eastern.

After having no contest with a purse larger than $5,000 in the first half of 2008, five IFOCE contests in the the third quarter will award total prizes of at least $10,000 (Nathan’s, Krystal, OK BBQ, kolaches and grits)

    Are any top eaters going to be there? Joey, Hall and Tim are going to kolaches the day before the Grits eating contest and Pat is going to enter the Jalapeno eating contest witch is the next day.

    Yeah, last year was:
    1st Pat
    2nd Tim
    3rd Joey
    4th Sonya
    5th Hall
    6th Patrick VD
    7th Timm Dilling

    That weekend I am actually competing for the Triathlon of Competitive Eating. I will be going to Kolaches, Grits, and then Jalapeños. Deep Dish will be doing the same I believe, so I will be seeing a lot of him in the near future!

    Surely Bob will do grits this year, given his capacity to do 100+ krystals.

    This year if sonya goes I bet she pukes before 8 lbs and goes home crying and maybe that will be the end of that I hope so. She had a reversal last year and people lied for her and covered it up. Luther
