1st Annual Chili Cook Off

3/11/2018 @ 4:30 PM

That’s right you heard it correctly.  If you missed last year, you will have the chance to come and join us this year for our first annual chili cook off.  You can participate in making the chili or be a judge and enjoy eating the chili!  It is your chance to get your name on the champion board.

Our current reigning champion, Kris Dill, with White chicken Chili will be defending her title.  Although I’m told she will be brining another fabulous chili, just not chicken.  Rumor has it she made chicken soup, but I think the MEN were just jealous.

Come join the fun, have some great fellowship and chili will be served after judging is complete.

Judging starts at 4:30 and ending at 5.  Then it is time to eat!

Corn bread, cinnamon rolls and Fritos will be served too.  You are welcome to bring chili, corn bread and cinnamon rolls too.

Don’t miss out on the fun!  We had such a good time last year.
