The 2022 Chili Cook-off is in the books. We had a busy day and had gross receipts of $970.00.
Thanks to all that came and worked all day. Bob Evins, John Howe, Chuck Collins, Willie Ellis, Patrick Heilman and Allan Carter met at Larry Olson’s at 7:00 a.m. and loaded all the equipment on Allan’s truck. LaVaun Ward met them at the booth location and things were unloaded and setup.
Jack van Wingerden helped Bob Evins trace names. Allan, Willie, and Chuck cut names all day. Charles Stevenson came for the afternoon shift and helped cut names. Patrick Heilman did all the sanding and drilling of starter holes. LaVaun ran the office and kept track of the money. We had Cash, Venmo and C/C payment types available and all three were utilized throughout the day.
Carson and Chris Davis came by the booth during the day. And Cindy Bock brought us snickerdoodle cookies in honor of Barb Schmit, who was always very involved in this event.
We did not finish cutting names until after 6:00pm. Then the booth had to be taken down and all things loaded back up and taken back to the storage shed at Larry’s. It was a long but re- warding day.
John Howe did a great job of displaying some puzzles and cars in boxes with the prices clearly marked, and we sold several of them. Here are some pictures from the day.
