2015 Christmas Party: Chili Cook-Off & Lip Sync Battle – Say What?


december12 Uncommon Christmas Party

Saturday, December 12th starting at 6:00pm

Libby has graciously offered to host at her home
6400 E 100 N
Lafayette 47905

Bring a dish or dessert to share!

This year we are changing it up – instead of going to The Trails and having them provide the food & beverages at the price of a ticket – we are going to have everyone pitch in and bring a side dish or dessert to share.   Some beer & wine will be provided, but if you are picky make sure you bring your own beverages.

Please bring your spouse or a friend to the party.  Uncommon Nation is over 100 members strong and we would love to see a huge turnout to the party.  A time for all our members who normally just attend the morning, afternoon and evening to meet some of the other Uncommoners.   To help plan the evening, we are adding an event to the ZenPlanner calendar, please “reserve” a spot and include how many people will be attending.

The party is gonna be insane this year.  We have a couple things planned – Chili Cook-off & a Lip Sync Battle.  Read the details below.

Chili Cook-off Guidelines

  • Sign up is required.  There will be a sign up sheet at the box.
  • All chili is to be prepared in advance and ready to eat
  • Judging will begin at 6:30pm
  • The name of your chili and a list of ingredients must be posted on a card with your chili as well as its hotness (i.e. mild, medium, hot, super hot).
  • Please do not put your name on the card in order to keep your name a secret until after all judging is completed.  Making your name known is an automatic disqualification.  Feel free to be creative with your chili name and chili ingredient sign as long as it does not give your identity away.
  • Judging will be by panel.  Panel judges will remain a secret until it is time for them to judge.
  • A Grand Champion & Runner-Up will be named.  Winner will receive a trophy & prize.  Runner-Up will receive a medal.

Lip Sync Battle Guidelines

Karaoke…that’s so 2008. Lip Sync Battle is where it is at – you can sing like Elton John or you can sing like John Elton (who is that???  who knows – he can’t sing)…it doesn’t matter because you are lip syncing.  Uncommon’s First Ever Lip Syncing Battle begins now…at the Christmas Party.

If you haven’t seen Jimmy Fallon & The Tonight Show’s Lip Sync Battle, please enjoy this video:


  • Song submission is required to make sure we don’t have duplicates.  There will be a sign up sheet at the box.   First person to submit the song, owns that song for the night.
  • We will be limiting the number of entries to the first 10.
  • You can enter as a solo or a group.
  • Feel free to dress in character.
  • Song choice will need to be submitted to make sure we have the song & version of song you want available.
  • Song submission is due by December 10th.  You will obviously want to make sure the song is available prior to practicing the song for the Lip Sync Battle so the sooner the better.
  • Time Limit will be 90 sec so you will perform a portion of song.  Let us know which portion.
  • Judging will be by panel.  Panel judges will remain a secret until it is time for them to judge.
  • A 1st, 2nd & 3rd place winner will be declared and receive an awesome trophy for their efforts which they will be able to share on their fireplace mantle.
  • This is going to be epic.  Pete already entered himself into the Battle. Game on.
