GRAVETTE -- A chili cook off was held as one of the attractions at the community fall festival Saturday night at Ozarks Community Hospital. Four entrants cooked pots of chili and vied for cash prizes and trophies. Festival goers paid a dollar to sample each pot of chili and then cast their votes for best chili and best decorated booth.
Clayton Sandridge, of Springtown, and Leslie South were chosen as winners for the best chili and won $100 and a trophy. Clayton and Leslie, who called themselves the "After Burn Team," work in the dietary department at the hospital.
Nick Harbaugh, of Bella Vista, won the award for best decorated booth with his "Barth's Burgery" theme. Nick and the other members of his team, Patty Grinslade and Lorie McFall, all work in the lab at the hospital. They were awarded a $50 cash prize and a trophy.
Other entrants in the cook off included Tara Hicks, of Maysville, with her "Hog Wild Chili" and a Harley-Davidson theme booth, and Nick Pilgrim, whose booth featured a giant spider. Nick said his wife Kimberly, owner of the Shabby Chic salon in Gravette, actually cooked the chili and he was just recruited to serve it.Community on 11/04/2015
