Sand Springs will experience a warm-up on Friday, and it has nothing to do with the weather.

The Rotary Club of Sand Springs will hold its 29th Annual Chili Contest from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Case Community Center, 1050 W. Wekiwa Road.

All-you-can-eat tickets can be purchased for $10 in advance from any Rotarian in Sand Springs or at the door.

More than 29 kinds of peppers, including venison pepper, white chicken pepper and many versions of traditional mild, hot and hotter peppers, will be served at the event, said Ed Dubie, its founder and president. .

Community members serving as judges will name a first-place winner, who will receive a rotating trophy as well as a trophy to keep.

Second and third place will also receive trophies.

A People’s Choice award will also be presented, and the city’s police and fire departments will compete in a separate contest.

The Women’s Chamber of Commerce will also get in on the act by selling a slice pie for $2 or a whole 8-inch pie for $9 or a whole 9-inch pie for $12.

The Women’s Chamber will use the proceeds for its community projects.
