Chili Cook-Off and Rail Jam

November 4, 2023

 Attention, kitchen maestros of all levels, from novice cooks to seasoned experts! We’re on a quest to discover your culinary magic and add some sizzle to the 13th annual chili cook-off at the Lyndon Outing Club (LOC). But hold onto your aprons because this is no ordinary cook-off. It’s a thrilling fundraiser designed to turbocharge LOC’s mission of providing affordable skiing, snowboarding, and outdoor adventure opportunities to our vibrant Northeast Kingdom community.

This year, we’re taking it up a notch by merging the chili cook-off with a brew fest featuring beloved local brews like Dirt Church, Whirligig, Red Barn, and St J distillery. Plus, there’s more action with a thrilling running and bicycle race on the hill, hosted by the one and only Jesse Holden.

If you’re eager to be part of the excitement and want to show off your chili-making prowess, just visit the website for all the essential details, rules, and sign-up information! Take a moment to peruse the provided information, and if you’re up for the challenge, complete and return the form by Wednesday, October 25, 2023. Expect to hear from us directly to confirm your participation in this sizzling event!
