Battle Of The Badges BBQ Style

Be ready for some bodacious barbecue when The 100 Club of the Texas Panhandle holds its annual meeting at 6pm May 18th at the Tri-State Fairgrounds covered food corral.

Barbecue teams from the area fire and law enforcement agencies will prepare mouth-watering ribs, brisket, and sausage as they compete for honors in the annual “Battle of the Badges” barbecue style. 100 Club members and those interested in joining the organization are encouraged to attend.

Admission is free, but donations will be accepted.  

The 100 Club’s sole purpose is to stand behind the men and women behind the badge. Executive director, Dirk Swopes says that they provide immediate financial aid for families of the first responders killed or injured in the line of duty. And they also provide life-protecting equipment and educational opportunities for firefighting and law enforcement agencies that cannot be secured through budgeted funds.

The 100 Club supports first responders in the top 26 Panhandle counties, and is funded solely by private donations by its members and others.
