Celebrate Canada’s 150th Birthday


We are looking for “chili cookers” to compete in this years challenge.  Our theme is “Canada’s 150th Birthday” so put your thinking cap on and come up with a chili recipe that shows the pride we have for our country.   It’s easy, it’s fun and it supports many organizations and events in our community such as:

  • South Shore Ball Association
  • Stinger Volleyball
  • Last Mountain Lake Cultural Centre
  • Regina Beach Library
  • South Shore School
  • South Shore Winter Carnival
  • Senior Bus Trip
  • Castles and Dreams Preschool

ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS:  Cook up a batch of your favorite Chili to serve 25-30 people keeping in mind that 100 people will taste and provide a server on Friday, July 28.  It is also important that you decorate your table and area with a Canadian flair.  Marks this year will be as follows:

  1. 10 points for taste of chili
  2. 5 points for appearance of chili
  3. 5 points for presentation including  site decorations


Buena Vista Parks & Rec will provide:  tables, plug-ins, bowls, cutlery, buns, beverages and watermelon.  (beer will be sold)

There are two categories:  a Judges Award selected by celebrity judges and a Peoples Choice Award based on votes by patrons.  Prize money of $100.00 will be awarded to winner in each category

Please have your Chili at the School ready to serve the judges at 5:30.  Judging is based on Taste, Appearance and Presentation.

Please let your contact know if you are able to participate or call Donna Hall – 729-4220 or Carol Draper – 729-2528 by July 24

Thank you,  BV Parks and Recreation
