The Coachella Lodge just had a very successful Third Annual Masonic Chili Cookoff! The dining hall was packed with brothers, concordant body members, friends and family alike. Everyone had a fun time and were able to eat their fill in home made chili.
There were eleven chili entries this year and a big thanks is due to all the chili chefs that brought forth their chili this year. The competition was fierce, and the top three chilis were only separated by a few points. Below are our chili taste testing winners...
Third Place - Alicia Weiss - "The Winning Weiss"
Second Place - Jill Weiss - "Jilly's Chili"
First Place - Wor Fred McCubbin - "Kiss of Fire"
Chili Master 2016
Congratulations to this year's winners!!!
Afterwards there were several prizes that were raffled off to our attendees including: $25 gift card to Kaiser Restaurants, $25 gift card to Dickie's BBQ in La Quinta, Job's Daughters fireworks and Aspen Mills sourdough bowls.
A big thanks to our local community restaurants - Jackalope Ranch, Dickie's BBQ in La Quinta, and Aspen Mills - who donated prizes and supplies to our cookoff.
Our gratitude goes to our brothers, friends and Job's Daughters that helped make this event a huge success by helping serve, setup and cleanup.
