Is it feeling a little CHILI outside? It should! It’s time for our annual honkin’, screamin’ membership chili cookoff! Winner gets bragging rights for the next twelve months. As in previous years, bribery in the form of (name your favorite beer) are not condoned and are not guaranteed to sway the vote. But just in case, in addition to win, place and show, we give you the People’s Choice award. That’s where you, the incorruptible, tell the judges what you REALLY think. It’s a shouting contest so raise your hands and your voices and tell the world who the best chili cook is, bar none.
What a great Pancake Breakfast Fly-in, Saturday October 14th at the Chapter 35 Clubhouse! We served pancakes, sausage, coffee and orange juice for 59 hungry patrons. Low ceilings and fog prevented many from flying in, but we did have three aircraft arrive from far afield, including Chris in his Autogyro Calidus.
