The 1st 6th Annual National Grilled Cheese Invitational have opened their electronic floodgates and are now accepting registration for competition in this year's Grilled Cheese Invitational.

"The 1st 6th Annual Grilled Cheese Invitational will be mankind's greatest achievement since the invention of fire!" says Tim Walker, the event's founder and organizer. "This year we will have more cheese than ever before. More competitors, more sammiches, more everything!"

At The Grilled Cheese Invitational, amateur and professional chefs compete side by side in four categories to determine just who is a grilled cheese champion. Each competitor must prepare at least 20 samples of their sammich for the judges.

Who are these judges? YOU! Yes, anyone with a passion for the cheese is welcome to attend this event and judge sammiches. Judging is easy and is done using standardized ballots and a patented, computerized database that scientifically tabulates the results to determine the winners. So put a sammich in your face and tell the world what you think with a bread-muffled cry! MPFF!

Due to the absolutely overwhelming response to last year's competition, the organizers have selected a NEW LOCATION for this year's invitational that will allow for more people to attend the cheesening. As with previous Invitationals, the location will not be announced until the week of the event. To find out the super-secret location the very second it is announced, send an email to [email protected] (NOTE: We will not Spam™ you, this is a cheese announce list only!).

New for 2008, the organizers of the GCI have created an additional category of competition, SPOONS, which will live between the Missionary category and the Kama Sutra category.

Sammiches must be entered into one of the following approved categories:
The Missionary Position: White bread, orange cheese (Cheddar or American) and butter or margarine only.
Spoons: Any kind of bread, any kind of butter and any kind of cheese (or combination of cheeses) but no additional ingredients.
The Kama Sutra: Any kind of bread, any kind of butter, and any kind of cheese (or blend of cheeses) plus additional ingredients.
The Honey Pot: Any kind of bread, any kind of butter, any kind of cheese (or blend of cheeses), and any additional ingredients, but a sandwich that is sweet in flavor, or would best be served as dessert.

Think YOU have what it takes to deliver a full body blow to the Nationals? Register your sammich today (space is limited):

As the clear winners are determined (again, automagic computer system), the Grilled Cheese Invitational will award 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place trophies in each category. Imagine YOU going home with a one-of-a-kind gilded cheese trophy! In addition to the serious winners, two Spaz Awards will be awarded to the sammiches that are the biggest Spazzes, executive judge awards and mountains of grilled cheese for everybody!

On April 19th, we will part the mighty mountain of fresh loaves, wade knee-deep in the melted cheese and swim eye-high in the butterfat, but only a few, only the proud, the cheesiest, will earn the sacred right to hold a glimmering, golden trophy aloft for all to see and scream to the malignant heavens above: "I am a f@#king grilled cheese champion™!"

Got questions about the event? Of course you do! Send 'em to [email protected].

Yours in bread, butter cheese... and victory!
