It was a Hot, Hot time in Lake Boca the weekend of February 9-10. The brisk winds failed to chill the hot flow of chili from the participants of our annual Chili Cook Off.
Attending were the host boats of Duet, Southwinds and Paradocs. The participating boats were Sea Dragon, Cookie Monster, Imagine, Dalecarlia, Lizzetta, Sempra Amantes, Little Into the Blue, and Sea Ghost. There were many participants that came in by launch, making it a festive and wonderful evening together on the water for HISC.
This year, three trophies were given. Peder Sahlin won for the best chili and was awarded our perpetual trophy. Tom Garvey had the most unique presentation and Christeen Pozniak the most unique chili. Imagine a dessert chili!!! Our white wine sangria was a hit... the fruit took three hours of careful preparation by the Wechterman‘s making it a splendid success. Looking forward to next year‘s chili cook off.
