PROGRAM: ANNUAL CHILI COOK-OFF: Bring some of your favorite chili to be judged against others and then we will all try some.

CATEGORIES: RED MEAT, NON-RED MEAT (Eg. White Chicken Chili), and VEGETARIAN. Bring your chili (HOT, in an electric pot).
Also, if you like to bake (or don’t like to make chili) you could bring some Norwegian cookies. There will be an award for the best Norwegian cookies. We are also collecting cookies for the children’s Barnebirkie ski race.  Bring as many BOXED as you can - the kid skiers really LOVE cookies when they’re finished skiing. PLEASE, NO NUTS.

It’s also “Norwegian Sweater Month” at sons of Norway! If you have one, wear it to the meeting.
