Big Lake Chili Cook-off set for Sept. 21

Wednesday, September 18, 2002

The 13th annual Big Lake Chili Cook-Off will be held Saturday, Sept. 21, at the Manila Depot area. The event is sponsored by the Manila Lions Club.

Monte Middleton is serving as the chairman for the chili cook-off. There will be an estimated 25 cooking teams "spicing" up their own recipes for judging. In addition to cooking winners, showmanship awards will also be presented.

The chili will be judged in two divisions, junior division and senior division. Also, there will be a "People's Choice" award.

Middleton said in addition to a variety of chili, there will be games, craft booths and entertainment throughout the day. Again, Manila Future Farmers of America will present the annual Mess Manila competition.

Booths will open at approximately 8 a.m.

"We are looking for a good year," Middleton said. "There should be something for everyone."
