The 4th annual LBF chili cook-off and pumpkin carving contest were a big success again this year. A great turn out of friends and family, along with 11 chili's competing for the coveted prize of best chili for 2011. The chili's were wonderful, all of the extra food was great, the kids all had a blast, no one was seriously hurt, and everyone seemed to have a really good time.
We did lose one person fairly early in the evening, to a bad case of hay fever. Bill Roosma had to leave after he started breaking out and sneezing uncontrollably. This may have had a little bit to do with the big hay maze/fort that the kids and a few adults were all building and playing in upstairs. Sorry Bill......next year, take your meds before you come!
We also had a new family join us this year. We welcomed the Hodnot's.... Stu, Natalie, Kenzie and Logan. I do believe that they had a really good time, and we certainly hope they will join us again next year as well. :-)
As for this years winner....... ME..... Gordon Neitling!!! :-)
And for this years boobie prize winner..... John Swedberg!!! :-)
Best pumpkins carved this year have to go to Marty Stauffer......the guy does some really great work...and I do believe he carved like three of four!!!
Another successful year for the LBF chili cook-off...... thank you to all of our great friends and loved ones who put forth so much effort and time into making some really great chili's for us all to enjoy!!! This is always such a great way for us to kick off our Fall.
