"Thanks so much for your efforts returning the Chili Cookoff to Idaho City this year. I especially appreciated how you made the effort to socially distance the competitors and was happy to see some masks on the attendees and those who were serving the chili! The music was too loud, but hey! I’m old and have a hearing loss and still felt it was too loud. I hope all the vendors had a successful day! Special thanks to all the sponsors and organizers, and the IC Community Foundation for supplying the Idaho City Lager."

"We had a fantabulous time at the Chili Cook-Off!! Delicious chili was created by all the contestants and an amazingly friendly crowd was present that was so well behaved and compassionate that we all shared many good vibrations with each other throughout the event. We can’t wait for next year to taste all the 2020 creations. Thank you for all you’re fabulous efforts to coordinate assembling another wonderful community event that keeps Idaho City on the map and in the thoughts of local residents! Cheers!"
