2015 Chili Cook Off

The New Year is coming quick, and so is the Harsh Winters Annual Chili Cook Off! Mark your calendars,

Saturday February 7th noon till 4pm we will be hosting it at the Lakewood Cree Clubhouse, 2799 Oakmont Dr. Montgomery, Illinois 60538.

This is the same wonderful place we just had our annual Christmas party. This at home setting has a kitchen, plenty of tables and chairs and space for the kiddies to run around and watch a big screen tv. Yes, this will be a family event , so if you think your chili can be a contender come on out and show us what you got. Or if you suck at cooking (like myself) just come on out to hang and enjoy some wonderful Eats.

There will be a $75 prize for 1st place, $50 second, and $25 for third. Contestants must be current and up to date on their dues to participate, renewals and new members may join at the event prior to voting and will be guaranteed a spot in the competition.

Post up if you would like to enter or bring a dish and let us know who you are bringing so we can be prepared with utensils and fixens for the kiddies.

Thanks, Nick
