Chili cook off set to spice up Saturday

Don't forget about this weekend's 11th annual chili cook off

If you like beans, spice and showmanship, you won’t want to miss the 11th annual Chili Cook Off, this Saturday (Aug. 29) from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. at Millstream Village in Langford.

Organized by the West Shore Rotary Club, the event is raising funds to support a school in Uganda and help West Shore RCMP purchase a new community policing van.

“All the money goes to charity,” said organizer Dale Simon. “It’s about a lot of chili and a little bit of fun.”

More than a dozen teams will each supply at least six gallons of chili to try and woo the judges and compete for the coveted people’s choice award.

To cast your vote you’ll need a $7 voting card that allows you to sample the different dishes. The card includes a hot dog option for children.

There will also be a silent auction and family-friendly activities.
