Welcome to the Winner’s Circle ... ART MAYNARD!
Winner: Art Maynard (shown above with Kirk Coulter of RKC) ($25 Gift Certificate and Bragging Rights!)
Thanks to all the campers who participated in RKC's 1st Annual Chili Cook-Off! It was an evening of fantastic chili and, friendly competition & fun. We had an excellent time, with such a wonderful variety of chili to be sampled. From traditional, mild, spicy, vegetarian, kielbasa and bean, the list goes on (one competitor shared that their list of "secret ingredients" included beer and chocolate!).
All attendees were given a tasting "kit" of tasting cups, spoons, napkins, and their blank voting paper. And, of course, what is chili without the hot dogs & buns for the perfect chili dog!? We enjoyed some tasty side dishes and desserts to boot!
After sampling from the eight different chili recipes, campers labored, and often went back for 2nds, just to be S-U-R-E they knew which chili was their favorite! Each camper dropped their vote into the box, even our youngest camper went the extra mile, to be sure his vote was unbiased (hard to NOT vote for your Mom!).
When the votes were all in and counted, the event leads Mary and Jeanie, with the assistance of Kirk Coulter, announce Art Maynard as RKC's Chili Cook-Off Champion! Art took his certificate, trophy and $25 Gift Certificate, and most importantly, the bragging rights, most humbly.
Thank you all, for making this another successful RKC Event!
