13TH ANNUAL CRAWFISH BOIL OFF & 5K POSTPONED INDEFINITELY

New Date: To Be Determined

Dear Crawfish 5K Participant,
 
It is with regret that we announce the postponement of the 13 Annual Crawfish Boil Off & 5K, originally scheduled for Saturday, May 2,2020. The decision to postpone an event is always a difficult one, but given the circumstances surrounding the spread of the COVID-19 virus and following the advice and lead of our local leaders, we feel it is the prudent move at this time. We are working to determine a suitable reschedule date this Fall and will make that announcement and reopen registration once we have selected the date. Current registrations will automatically transfer to the new date. We appreciate your understanding and we look forward to seeing you on the to-be-announced Race Day!

Description

The idea for the boil-off came up when a few men, who were sitting at Southdown Bar, were arguing over who could boil the best tasting crawfish. So began the “Boil-Off”.   Herman Courville and Amos Mosely decided to have a contest and invite people to compete for the best tasting crawfish. In the first year, $250 was raised and because Herman’s wife Cindy was a CASA volunteer, he rounded the funds up to $500 and it was donated to CASA. From here, the Annual Crawfish Boil-Off was born. In the second year, Southdown raised $325 which was rounded up to $500 and donated to CASA. In years three through eight, the following funds were raised: $1707, $14,239, $34,000, $52,000, $42,000, $50,000 and $41,600.  As the years have passed, the Crawfish Boil-off has become more popular.
