Chili cook-off competition will heat up Sept. 23

Greater Hansville Community Center’s annual event

HANSVILLE — It may be time to preemptively start gobbling antacids, because things are going to heat up at the Greater Hansville Community Center’s annual Chili Cook-Off.

Starting at 6 p.m. Sept. 23, the reigning chili champs, North Kitsap Puget Sound Anglers, will look to defend their title against a scrappy newcomer, North Kitsap Fire & Rescue. Additionally, teams from Hansville Helping Hands & Cemetery, Eglon Improvement Club and the Greater Hansville Community Center will be present and ready to dole out some spicy competition.

Audience members are encouraged to cast their votes by making donations into each team’s collection jar. At the end, the team with the most cash in their jar will be declared the winner. Audience members are encouraged to “vote” as much as they like, because this year all cash and checks gathered at the cook-off will go to the North Kitsap Puget Sound Anglers’ Legacy Project.

The Legacy Project seeks to enhance salmon runs in local waters by introducing 30,000 to 40,000 locally raised and imprinted salmon fingerlings annually. Organizers hope this project will guarantee the return of salmon to the area for generations to come.

The Greater Hansville Community Center is located at 6778 Buck Lake Road NE.
