The 28th Annual Chili Cookoff attracted 32 contestants that were hoping to be crowned “Number One” ! This year the honor of being the Number “1” chili was bestowed upon Matt Chamberlain’s #2 “Brown Chili”. In addition to the notoriety, Matt also won $225 and a statue. Second Place went to Christine DeWitte’s #26 “Stumble In” chili. Christine went home with a big smile along with $175 & a statue. Third place winner, Vance Oswskey and his #28 “Spank the Bull” brought home $100 and a statue. The much coveted PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD, along with $200, was presented to Robyn Kenny for her # 27 “Woosey Green Chili”. The weather was perfect for this year’s chili cookoff. Thomas Oliver & Hotfoot kept the party rolling into the evening at the Saloon. As always, the cookoff was a success and the local businesses got a shot in the arm! Thanks to everyone who entered chilis, volunteered, judged and participated in the 2012 Cookoff. We hope everyone had a great time and will plan to visit Crown King again soon.
