Come join us for our annual Chili Cook Off competition and Zero Run ride. Enjoy and vote for your favorite chili and if adventurous enough breakout your winter leathers and woolies and join the Big Barn's Zero Run.

Chili served at 11 AM, Cost = $5.00 for Lunch and $1.00 per beverage Zero Ride

Registration 11 AM-12 PM. Zero Run leaves at 12 PM. Ride 1 mile per degree outside.

The Chili Cook-off competition is open to all H.O.G. members and non– H.O.G. members. So breakout your favorite recipe and compete for your name on a plaque and bragging rights for the year. If you're not into cooking we also need all the fixings, i.e. cheese, crackers, cornbread, desserts, etc.

This annual event is one of our largest fund raisers of the year to help support our chapter. All proceeds from the sale of lunch and beverage tickets will benefit our chapter. The Zero Ride is a BBHD event, but we do help out with the Road Captain duties. This is also a great opportunity to meet and greet non-H.O.G. members that are joining in the event to tell them all about our chapter to see if they would be interested in joining. So if you are there either riding or helping — if you see someone you don’t know be sure to say ”Hi” and tell them all about our AWESOME chapter!!!

Volunteers are needed for setup, during the chili cook off and cleanup. If you are bringing chili - please bring it no later than 10:00 am so it is set up, warm and ready to go. 

Like last year, we will be selling soda pop, water and coffee as well and we will be asking for someone to man that table. It will be $1.00 per can of soda or bottle of pop. We will sell unlimited cups of coffee for $1.00 — refills free if you bring your cup back up for a refill. Sign up sheets will be available at the January Chapter Meeting.

Let’s get our Chili Game faces on and start off 2020 with a BANG!
