Please join us on Saturday, February 9th, for the 19th Annual Darts Tournament and Chili Cookoff. Signups start at noon and random teams will be drawn by 1:00PM. You don’t have to be a ringer to play. Bring your best chili and let everyone sample and decide whose chili pleases the palate the most. The cost is $5.00 to enter and sample all of the chili entries. The winner will be decided by votes after everyone has had a chance to taste the entries or when we run out of chili. Come and warm up to some chili and play darts! It’s always lots of fun.
