Nokomis Learning Center Chili Cook-Off and Storytelling
April 4, 2008

On April 4, 2008 we went to the Nokomis Learning Center in Okemos to participate in the second annual Chili Cook-Off and Storytelling. Mike cooked his Beef Jerky Chili for the event. There were a lot of people there, and eight different chilis. Mike won first place in the "Youth Chili" catefory, and tied for third place for "Hottest Chili". After eating chili, volunteers told stories about family gatherings and food. Mike told about the creation of Van Helsing Chili on a Troop 109 campout. A very enjoyable evening.

Eight different types of chili to sample!

Mike's Jerky Chili was entry #3.

Must try all of them!
