2015 - ICB 26: The Chili Games


It hardly seems possible that we’ve been doing this for 26 years.  Our chosen date for 2015 found many guests and competitors off enjoying some school break vacations, so our numbers were down from our record setting 25th last year.

That didn’t put a damper on anything.  Our chefs served up some mouth watering choices again this year, and we’re particularly happy with how our party theme and design came out this year.  (Did ya spot the chile in the mockingjay’s mouth?)

Thanks to this year’s winners, and a special shout out to Mark, Sharon, Mitchell, and Isaac for once again being such fabulous hosts!
