Nov 2016: GCHWC’s Annual Chili Cookoff / Swap / Night at the Races!

As the fall weather starts to creep in, it’s time for everyone to get out your cookbooks for GCHWC’s Fourth Annual Chili Cookoff / Swap / Night at the Races on Nov 19th starting at 6pm at Zion Church.


We’ll start the evening with a chili dinner supplied by our members competing for “best chili” honors as voted on by you… the lucky folks who get to sample them all.     Have a great recipe to share?  Bring a crockpot and wow the crowd!  This year we’re adding a corn bread category for even more great samples.


After dinner, we’ll use Larry’s indoor downhill track setup for three special themed races:

  1.  Grab bag:  crowd favorite your way in with a car you purchase at random from a bag of unopened cars.  Fastest car wins half the pot!
  2. Model Year Mania:  2010.  This event is open to any 2010 model year unmodified Hot Wheels (for example 2010 Ford Mustang GT).  The year refers to the model of the vehicle, not the year in which it was produced by Mattel.
  3. Station Wagon Showdown: This event is open to all unmodified hot wheels station wagons (ex. 8 Crate, Chevelle Wagon, Nomad).   Minivans and SUV’s need not apply!


Finally, after the races, members are invited to lay out any / all items they’d like to swap and sell.  Table space is limited, so if you have a card table handy, please bring it along.
