Forty-two people attended the Colorado Springs Chapter “Chili Cook-off” on Saturday October 11 at the Colorado Springs Shrine Club. There were 7 different chili entries for the contest. The Judges were N. G., D. B., Brittany Murphy, and J. B.. After tasting all 7 chili concoctions, the votes were tallied and the winners were announced. There were three categories- Red, Green and HOT. The winner in the HOT division was Dad Crask, Broomfield Chapter Advisor. The winner in the Green division was Mom Pilato, Colorado Springs Chapter Advisor. The winner in the Red division was Dad Reiter, Colorado Springs Chapter Advisor. The Judges also picked a Grand Champion Chili over all and that distinction went to Dad Reiter. Mom Nash and Mom Appiano made super cornbread to compliment all the chili dishes. T. B. did a great job putting together all of the event extra items to help make this a success. Thank you to Dad Nichols for manning the front door and collecting the monies and selling chocolate bars and beef sticks. Thanks to Dad Pilato and Mom Pilato for caring for and bringing the pulled pork BBQ sandwiches and taking care of the Judges. We look forward to the next great event for more social and fraternal fun together. Be sure to mark your calendars for this great event next fall.
