Crews working on tornado recovery get a protein-filled break

Updated:
Crews working on tornado recovery in Baxter Springs and Quapaw get a tasty break.
The second annual brisket cook off and softball tournament at the Baxter Springs softball fields drew in 8 area casinos, including Downstream and Cherokee Hard Rock of Tulsa.
Each casino brought everything from chicken and pork, to lobster and shrimp for the public to enjoy.
Chefs had just 8 hours to prepare their original brisket recipe in hopes of winning the top prize, a charcoal grill from PM Fabrication and Welding in Joplin.
Residents and visiting volunteers say it's a great chance to relax after a hard week.
"I would say Baxter and Quapaw need a pick me up, get a day a way from everything, to come out and enjoy the food," said organizer Jerad Swimmer.
"You can't beat coming together and donating for a great cause, great food and being around the community and learning more about Baxter Springs," said volunteer Lynn Rolf.
All proceeds from today's cook-off and tournament benefit the Quapaw Tribe's Seneca Black Elk Mathews scholarship fund, which will help pay for 3 tribal members to attend Oklahoma State University.
