South St. Paul Jaycees team member Jessica Trisko stirred the group's booya entry during the annual World Championship Booya contest in 2013. The World Championship Booya is back again this year, as booya cooks battle for the best Midwestern stew Saturday, Oct. 4. (file photo)

'On the Road Again' hosts Boucha, new mini train
While kicking back with a couple of "Hammies" beers after a successful rodeo in South St. Paul, Walt Books and his buddy Bob Yanz started brewing up another attraction to keep the small town on the map: a booya contest.
And it wasn't just going to be a local shindig. Books wanted it to be big. So big, he dubbed it the "World Championship Booya" in 1982, a name that eventually attracted national news coverage and an intense rivalry with other booya organizers — in particular, a Wisconsin newspaper columnist — over Books's claim that South St. Paul is the booya capital of the U.S.
