Chili Cook-off

Chili Cook-off — This event is sponsored by Golden Eagle and we supply the manpower to serve the beer. The cook-off takes place from noon – 6 pm on a Saturday, usually in the latter half of February. Teams set up booths where they serve samples of chili and are judged for prizes. There are various contests that go on throughout the day. We are solely responsible for serving the beer and we make money off this event, but also donate back part of our money to the charity the Golden Eagle designates. There is minimal work involved for the chairman and co-chair prior to the event, which involves getting a liquor license and insurance. There is a lot of manpower needed to set up the night before, serve during the event, and tear down the day after.
