2022 Cook-Off Rules

OFFICIAL RULES AND REGULATIONS FOR COMPETITORS
The One Team – One Fight Organization, a 501c3 not for Profit Corporation, will be hosting our 6th
ANNUAL FIRST RESPONDERS CRAWFISH BOIL COOK-OFF
. This is a charitable event, with all
proceeds going to support the first responders of St. Charles Parish. Considering the many recent tragedies
involving law enforcement officers, firefighters, & EMS, along with the severe and disastrous weather in
the region lately, Hurricane Ida and COVID 19 pandemic, our first responders have TRULY been put to
the test. THANK YOU again for all that you do for this parish!

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!!!
