On Friday, October 27, 2017, twelve teams put their culinary skills to the test to compete for the top competitor awards at the 2nd Annual Vecova Chili Cook-Off. These competitors spent countless hours perfecting their recipes and preparing their signature chili dishes to showcase them to our “expert” taste-testers and judges. These delectable chili dishes were sampled by our panel of judges, including Ivan Sierralta, chair of Vecova’s board, Dave MacKillop, a board member and Larry Saviskoff, a volunteer partner with CSV Midstream Solutions. Thank you to all our guests who put their taste buds to the test, tried the chili cooked by our competitors and voted for their favourites. Thank you for joining us!
Prizes for the judges’ choice, voters’ choice, most unique chili and chili spirit were awarded to our competitors for their outstanding efforts. Chefs from Silver Springs Golf & Country Club cooked a large amount of chili for our guests and participants to enjoy. Your chili was delicious and we truly value your generosity. COBS Bakery in Crowfoot also donated dinner buns and coupons for all of our guests!
Our volunteers worked hard to help make sure this event ran smoothly and everyone had a good time – thank you for your hard work and commitment. All of our competitors were outstanding this year, and we appreciate all their hard work and participation!
