Dianna Hoy, Chili Appreciation Society International

Dianna Hoy, president of the Victoria chapter of the Chili Appreciation Society International, randomly labels competitors’ containers of chili before presenting them to the judges on Saturday at the Coleto Creek Lake RV Park clubhouse.

The steady sound of rain hitting popup canopies and smell of chili filled the air Saturday afternoon at the 39th annual VASA Pod Thanksgiving Weekend Chili Cook-Off.

But the sudden downpour was not enough to stop Nadine and Barry Karnei from attending the event at the Coleto Creek Lake RV Park for their 22nd year to enter their pots.
