Annual chili cookoff draws crowd despite rain

O'Chili'uns win pair of top prizes from Rotary-organized competition

Armed with spoons, pots and spices, four teams battled it out Sept. 28 at the fifth-annual Chili Cook Off, hosted by the Rotary Club of South Surrey.

Despite the rain, ladles of chili and fresh buns – donated by South Pointe’s Cobb’s Breads – kept tasters warm and full.

White Rock Community Policing (The Heat), Jimmy Flynn’s and the White Rock Rotarians (O’Chili’uns), Uli’s and the Peninsula Rotary (Ro’toot’ary) and Jan’s and the Semiahmoo Rotary (Red Hot Chili Schleppers) each served up their versions of the classic dish.

The O’Chili’uns took home top prizes with the Judges Award and the People’s Choice Award.

Taking home the Spirit Award was the Red Hot Chili Schleppers.

The dishes were judged by Darren Alexander, Holly Begley and Yung Hsi, a certified chili judge with more than 20 years of experience.
