Chili Cook-Off, Oct. 14 Sanctioned by the Veterans of Lakehills


There will be plenty of good food and entertainment at the annual chili cook-off sponsored by the Lakehills American Legion Post 410. Trophies and cash prizes ($100, $75 and $50) for best chili, which must be prepared on-site, use fresh ingredients and at least 5 pounds of meat — no fillers. (That means beans.) There is a $20 entry fee and a 1-quart donation of chili to the Legion for fundraising auction.
There is a separate contest for best Jack-Pot Beans with no cooking rules and a payback based on percentage of $10 entry fee to the top three bean dishes. Turn in the beans at noon.
Registration for the Fall Chili Cook-Off begins at 8:30 a.m., Saturday, Oct. 14, at the American Legion Post 410 at 147 26th St., in Lakehills. For more information visit the website at or call 304-881-4485 or send an email to
