For the past 22 years, the South Grand Lake Chamber has produced the annual Hook ‘n Cook-Off in celebration of the rich fishing history and the oncoming fall season.
Held at the South Grand Lake Regional Airport in Ketchum, OK on September 26, 2015, the event will feature Tulsa News Channel 8 Anchor Kristin Dickerson as emcee, national catfish cooking competition, live music from Grand Lake favorite Lickitty Split, shopping from regional vendors, large inflatable kid zone, vintage car show, airplane and helicopter rides plus new this year a Nautical Flea Market.
All this and some great catfish with all the trimmings at an affordable family price!
Tasting kits are only $10 at the gate, $8 in advance and $5 for Children but you can also bring your lawn chairs and come out and enjoy one of the best events in the Grand Lake area.
Community support is vital to regional events and many area businesses have stepped up in support of the 22nd Grand Lake Annual Hook-N-Cook-Off, but none bigger than Vyve Broadband, who for the second year has stepped forward as the title sponsor.
“We had such an amazing experience last year as the title sponsor that we knew we’d be back again,” said Jeff Beck, system manager for Vyve in Oklahoma. “The day is packed with local people having a great time enjoying the best that our community has to offer, and we’re so proud to be a growing part of that. Vyve will be there all day giving away gifts, raffling off prizes, and enjoying it all with everyone that makes a visit.”
Beck added, “The outdoors and fishing in particular are such important traditions for the people in Oklahoma, and Vyve Broadband loves to help celebrate that through our programming. The Outdoor Channel, Sportsman Channel, World Fishing Network, Outside Television and Pursuit are just some of the ways we bring the excitement of the outdoor lifestyle to our customers. The Hook ‘n Cook-Off is a great way to see that excitement live and have fun getting to know our neighbors even more.”
The South Grand Lake Chamber of Commerce invites you to participate in the Hook ‘n Cook-Off in several ways…enter a Cooking Team, purchase a Vendor booth and/or become a Sponsor of this fun event.
By entering a Cooking Team, your team could be crowned one of the best Fish Fry Cooks in the country.
Each team is to prepare fish, coleslaw and hushpuppies to be judged by our secret panel of judges.
Each entry will be judged on aroma, looks, taste and aftertaste.
Plus new this year – the first 10 cooking teams to sign up will get their cooking team entry fee waved – that’s a $150 savings. That’s right the first 10 cooking teams entered will get in for FREE!
