AND THE WINNERS ARE...!”
Last Saturday, our Men’s Club Chili Cook-off proved to be quite the event! With 7 entries, there was a great deal of tasting, debating and even some politicking! The end results came down to a tie with Cory & Wyatt Potts and Russell & Charlene Mickan the winners! There were lots of cheers and some moans! Thanks gentlemen for a fun night!
Let’s do it again!
