That weekend we offer fabulous food, a horseshoes contest, dry camping, even trophies for chili contest winners. Members and their guests (of all ages) are welcome. You are encouraged to enter our Chili Contest and test your cooking skills with other great cooks...and have the opportunity to taste the results.

You can get a chili dinner for $10 (kids $6), or you can get a sampling of ALL the judged chili for $15.
