For the second year in a row a group of Halifax County football fans have won the CIAA Tailgater of the Year Award. The Halifax County fans were led by Grill Masters Christopher S. Fountain, Brian K. Lovelace and Robert D. Fountain, Sr.
The CIAA Tailgater of the Year Award was sponsored by Food Lion Supermarket in Durham, N.C. This year’s winner received a $500 Food Lion gift card and plaque.
Halifax County’s fans earned the award by winning the Tailgate Cook-Off held Nov. 12 at Durham (N.C.) City Stadium. Grilling contestants were judged based on taste, presentation, and overall camaraderie of the group.
The grillers said it was a great honor to win the Tailgater of the Year award again and look forward to next year’s challenge.
