OK AZXC, we should start planning when / where we want to have this year's chili cookoff.  I think a local park is much easier than trying to offroad with your chili.

EDIT:  I believe this is the 6th Annual Chili Cookoff, and it is one of the events that actually draws quite a few members.  Last year we did it on the second weekend of the month.  For 2012, that would be on Saturday, March 10th.

If it's closer to the afternoon, I could probably make it up for a Saturday event. If it's in the morning, count me out.

I push for the 3rd Saturday in March, we won't be able to make it on the 10th...My annual spring training marathon with the Giants & my family from San Fran starts on the 9th :)

Kiwanis park in Tempe could be a good central-ish location.

Is there such a thing as 'too much'? :)

Better to have too much than not enough. We usually have a good turnout & I imagine this year will be an exceptional turnout.

Think a giant crock pot should do it then.

Big crock pot is the way to go........

Last year there were 3 or four crocks/pots of chili, and I brought a bunch home.  looking like there will be a few more people this year to eat my winning chili.......

So are we good to go with Kiwanis Park on March 17?  That is St. Patrick's Day, just and FYI?  Or do we want to do it on March 24?

I might try and make this one too.  Might have to steal my dad's white chicken chili  recipe to make something a little different since I am the outcast here.  ;D

I vote any day but St. Patty's day also. Trying to plan out a camping fishing trip to Apache lake around that time so I'll work around it, we could go early April too, fish'll probably be biting better then anyway...
