WCMG Meeting / Chili Cook-Off – Tuesday, 7 February 2017

chili-933Reminder: Tuesday, 7 February 2017 at 6:30 PM is our annual chili cook-off.  Can our reigning champion be unseated? If you attended last year’s chili cook-off, you know it won’t be easy.

Robert Hamilton, David Bates, Gary Stein & Marianne Pelletier are the last four 1st Place winners in our annual chili cookoff. But if you have a good recipe and you think you have what it takes to tempt the sophisticated taste buds of our members, then don your apron, get to cutting and whip up a batch for the February 7 meeting. Make a crock-pot or stew-pot full, enough for everyone to get a taste. Also, please complete this online [ Sign-Up Form ] if you plan to bring chili. Here is the direct link to the sign-up form:

This form helps us keep up with how many plan to participate in the cookoff as well as no what other food items we still need.

CHILI-3And if you’re not making chili, maybe you can help by bringing one of the following items: grated cheese, sour cream, cornbread, crackers or corn chips, drinks or a dessert. If you can provide any of these items, please complete this online [ Sign-Up Form ] as soon as possible so that we’ll know what’s coming and what’s lacking.
