Only two Brethren teams?

That's too bad.

This is a People's Choice contest, so I hope to see some Brethren come down and try out the chili.

Got the word due to good chance of rain all day tomorrow.
Probably a wise call, especially for the mc clubs riders and a bit easier on the chili cooks.

Stay tuned...
