FatAss Crockpot Chili Contest!
Bring your best chili and vie for a special GUTS prize! Please bring the chili in a crockpot because we don't have enough burners on the stove for everyone. GUTS will provide the bowls and utensils as well some yummy chili toppings. Each runner will be given a ballot to vote for their favorite chili and the winner will receive a special award.
FREE. GUTS Members only. So, be sure and renew your membership first on Ultrasignup
