There are Two Different Divisions in the Cookoff: CASI/Tolbert and ICS. One may cook in one or both divisions at once, but a separate bowl of Chili will need to be turned in per division. The judging rules of each Division are also different. You do not need a membership to cook in the CASI/Tolbert Division.
