***This is one of those special events that Houston 2nd gets every year for its hard-working volunteers. So writing this on here now. If you register it does not mean you are guaranteed tickets. I will reply to everyone individually to confirm request***
Join The Mission Continues- Houston 2nd Service platoon as we get to enjoy the festivities that kickstart the largest rodeo in the state of Texas. This event is for Thursday, Feb. 22nd and was able to get 40 wristbands for this night to various cooking tents.
Also called the “World’s Championship Bar-B-Que Contest,” the Houston Rodeo Cookoff is a Texas-sized Houston BBQ Party. Several hundred BBQ cooks convene for three days of cooking competition, dancing and, of course, eating. The 2017 Rodeo Houston cook-off draws huge crowds, with a record crowd of 221,229 rodeo cookoff fans sampling the BBQ goodness in 2010. More than 350 rodeo BBQ cook-off teams will compete in the Rodeo Houston barbecue cookoff and also help to raise money for charity scholarships. BBQ Cookoff trophies are awarded to the teams with the best dish in each of the three categories (brisket, chicken and spare ribs) as well as a trophy for the overall winner. Awards will also be presented for the most unique pit, most colorful team, cleanest area, and the BBQ team with the best skit. In addition to the 2017 Houston Rodeo BBQ Cookoff serving up great Texas barbecue you can also expect lots of live music as well as The Hideout for the 21+ crowd that wishes to enjoy a few alcoholic beverages to go with their rodeo BBQ cook-off.

Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
