The Fort Wayne Radio Club will host a carry-in chili competition and social for our February 9 meeting. The cook whose chili gets the most votes from attendees will win a $50 cash prize. The club will accept votes only from people who tasted the chili for which they vote.
All club members are invited to bring their best chili or a favorite side dish or beverage.
Members who intend to bring chili are requested to advise Joe Stephens via email by Wednesday evening, Feb. 7. Email him at email@example.com.
Club leaders request that chili cooks label their creations with a heat designation; mild, medium, hot, or “temperature of the sun.” Nobody likes to be surprised by a burning tongue!
The club asks cooks to arrive at around 6 p.m. with their chili in a crock pot and some sort of serving utensil, such as a ladle. The meeting will begin at 6:30.
During the business portion of the meeting, the club plans to discuss creating an Elmer corps for new hams and the future of fox (hidden transmitter) hunting competitions.
As usual, the club will meet at Good Shepherd United Methodist Church, 4700 Vance Ave., Fort Wayne. Enter the church building using door number 2. If possible, arrive no later than 6:30 p.m., so someone will be at the door to let you in. Late arrivals might need to call for assistance on the 146.76 MHz FWRC repeater. Once inside, proceed to Raasch Hall.
