2019 Competition Winners
The Kora Shriner’s would like to thank all that came to the Kora Kare for Kids Ride-In and BBQ Competition. We appreciate the Widows Sons leading a very scenic motorcycle ride through the valley and the local and Kora ATV clubs for leading a ride to Devils Den. The Hillbilly Corn hole tournament was busy with everyone having fun. Our Shriner’s Hospital patients had a blast in the Kids BBQ contest and were happy to meet their supporters. Our guest “Kechi” was a pleasure to have at the event. Her amazing story of recovery and her beautiful voice was truly a very special treat. The weather was perfect at the Ossipee Valley Fairgrounds with plenty of excitement in the air, along with the smell of great BBQ. Our main attraction drew 36 Professional competition BBQ teams to Hiram, Maine to compete for prize money and KCBS points. Thank you to Chad and Nicole Humphrey for coordinating a great competition.
