Chili Fest!

by Christy Taylor

The Inaugural Chili Fest with the Sioux Falls Roller Dollz! A HUGE THANK YOU to all our chefs who brought out AMAZING chili recipes and to all our fans who supported the event! 

Our Winners:
Best Chili: Hollicidal Maniac, 3 Meat Chili
People's Choice: Cindy Rippe, Miss Cindy's Chislic Chili 

Being a member of the team, as Christy NailHer, I figured I should do my part--and very impulsively joined the Chili eating contest! No, not the mouthwatering stuff being served with cheese and crackers. We're talking JALAPENO chili eating contest! Stupid idea? YES. But guess who won?!
Who knew all those reruns of Man vs Food would be so inspiring?

One of the highlights of the day was meeting a little girl named Katelyn. My fiance, Seth noticed her first. She walked in sporting a full on neck tie, plaid shirt and big white tennis shoes. He told me if we have a daughter, he wants her to be just like her! Turns out, later in the day, Katelyn signed up for the chili eating contest--and took 3rd place!! Total rockstar. I gave her my medal to wear proudly. Best moment of the day!
