The winning Chili this year with a spicy and hearty mix was wonderful. We had several varieties and styles of Chili and even had some additional "fixings" for the taste test.

Thank you to our Judges this year!

The Unity Banquet offers a wonderful meal at Crystal Gardens where medals will be distributed, displayed by participants, a proudly shown off by those seniors who won them.
Opening day games will consist of a variety of events.  Each one of those games will have equipment on the field for participants to use. 

The helpers will have the fields marked and ready to go at your assigned start time.

The Baking contest required that you bring disposable pans for your items, so that after judging and distribution, you are not looking for your "plate".
Billiards location will be the Lincoln Park Moose.
The newest sporting event added to the week of games was of the Paddle and Peddle and was a great success, with new participants giving it a try again in 2018.   The paddle portion started @ 8:15am, after the one mile run, and the Bicycling 3 laps around Huroc Park began after participants got out of the kayak.
