NWTF’s Pike’s Peak Chapter wins

Sportsman’s Warehouse 7th Annual Chili Cook-off

The Sportsman’s Warehouse store in Colorado Springs hosted its 7th annual chili cook-off on Saturday, 30 June. The Pikes Peak chapter competed against local chapters from the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Mule Deer Foundation, Safari Club International, Duck Unlimited and the National Rifle Association. 

Pike’s Peak chapter chairman Willie Kalaskie and members Rob D’Isidori and Craig Fink carried the NWTF banner at this annual event and, at the end of the afternoon, it was Rob D’Isidori’s remarkable elk-based chili that took first place!  Each bite of his chili started off with a sweet foundation, and “finished off” with a nice “kick   Rob’s chili beat the other five competitors by an almost two-to-one margin.’’ 

The Pike’s Peak chapter was also able to raffle off a Weatherby 12 ga pump shotgun with camo stock and sling, thereby allowing the chapter to liaison with the community and spread the NWTF mission and goals of the NWTF. 

All-in-all, the chili cook-off was a fun time for all and great opportunity to spread the NWTF message.
