24th Annual Chili Cook Off sparks some friendly competition

Posted:

Competition heated up today at the 24th Annual Chili Cook Off at Custer State Park.    

People had a chance to sample each type of chili and choose their favorite one. Sixteen organizations participated in the cook off, all hoping to take home a cash prize. Contestants paid a 45 dollar entrance fee to have a chance at the 500 dollar first prize and the bragging rights for the year.

People enjoyed the chili but it was the themed booths that had everyone talking. There were pirates, truckers, zombies and even the spice girls showed up to put their chili to the ultimate test.

Mike Gussiaas and his band of the walking dead say they were inspired by Halloween to dress up like zombies. They called themselves the 'Zomb Squad'. He said  "Halloween around the corner like what can we do on the cheap that's fun for everyone, so where we ended up with zombies"  

Ann Hamilton and her friends channeled their inner Spice Girl to get their votes. "Its just the theme we came up with...we're over the hill" Hamilton said about her outfit choice.  

The Zomb Squad left with the showmanship award and 200 dollars.

Karl Merbach, superintendent of the Solid Waste Operations, said the city decided to take the money it would have used to repair the Fairmont site and build the new facility.
