Due to a late evening on Friday, I slept very late on Saturday morning. Ok Hwa was up early, as usual, and had breakfast ready for me when I rolled out.
We stayed at the Chili Cook-Off all day, which is unusual for us. The final judging for all the chili entries takes place on Saturday. All entries must be turned in by noon. P.A. announcements from the stage were read at short intervals throughout the afternoon. They helped keep all the campers updated on what was going on in the judging area. Mark and Barbara were judges again this year, so they spent a good amount of time walking between our camp on the hill and the judging shed. Sometime during the afternoon they hiked over to the Ghost Town, about two miles away. They caught a ride back with someone a little later.
As afternoon turned into evening, we were looking forward to the evening's entertainment: Mike Blakely with Thomas Michael Riley, followed by Pinche Gringos. The Pinche Gringos are a local band from Terlingua. They are one of the best live bands we've seen, and we were really looking forward to their set. They are a crowd favorite. We listened to Mike and Thomas from our campsite on the hill, then walked down to the stage at the judging shed for the Gringos set. I made a couple of videos of them, then put the camera away to enjoy the show and dance. What fun! Here are the videos:
