The TEXO YCC Tailgate is combining our final Challenge Cup events, which are the Washer Tournament, Chili Cook-Off, and BBQ Cook-Off.  Come and hang out with over 1,000 TEXO members and their families at this can't-miss event!  We will feature the KidsBuild area, and heated competition at the largest TEXO event of the year! 

The event will be open to the Public for Chili & BBQ tasting, and to watch the Washer Tournament. Entry for the public is free and we ask that you help us support the North Texas Food Bank by competing in the Company Can Food Drive Competition. Whether you come as a cook or a visitor, bring lots of canned food. When you arrive at the TEXO YCC Tailgate, you will be asked which company you'd like to designate your cans to. Each company is battling it out for TEXO Challenge Cup points, presented by Milwaukee Tools, so your food donation will help decide the winner!
