    I have filled out the online volunteer form to help out with the Gumbo Contest but I was never contacted by anyone

    There is a fierce interest in competitive gumbo in the Mid-South. The sudden opening of a slot last night was quickly filled again this morning. All slots for gumbo team at the TEP Gumbo Contest have been filled. If you missed the chance to compete in 2015, plan to attend and participate in the People's Choice competition (and conduct opposition research for next year's contest). Purchase general admission tickets to the event or VIP Tables for you and seven of your friends for as long as supplies last through the website at http://tepgumbocontest.blogspot.com.
