Judges needed to pick best of wildest
Have you ever wanted to get a taste of what the Wild Game Cookoff is all about? Now’s your chance, according to Tunica Main Street Director Lynn Ryals.
Judges are needed in three drink categories and six food categories for this year’s cookoff, set for Feb. 25 and 26. Seven judges will score entries and decide winners starting at 10 a.m.
“In the past, we’ve had 10 judges, but now we’re going to have seven in each,” Ryals said. “ The teams had asked us to do that since 10 people is a lot to prepare things for.”
