Rolling Thunder hosts chili cookoff

-A A +A

The first chili cookoff sponsored by Rolling Thunder Inc. Kentucky Chapter Four was held Feb. 2 at Colvin Community Center in Radcliff.


Fort Knox, Radcliff and Elizabethtown fire departments participated. During the event, a silent auction with items donated by various businesses and individuals made it a success. Items up for bid ranged from baked goods such as pies, cakes, king cakes and fudge to restaurant meals, to services from car dealerships and spa treatments.

Meals were provided for a small donation.

Mike Hill won the 50/50 drawing, and the proceeds were donated back to the chapter.

Radcliff Mayor J. J. Duvall, Radcliff Chief of Police Jeff Cross and retired Army Col. Mike Weaver judged the chili cookoff.

Elizabethtown Fire Department won. A trophy was presented to Timmy Puckett and Ryan Druen of the Elizabethtown Fire Department. The department will have the honor of holding on to this trophy for a year. It will be passed on to next winner during the second annual chili cookoff.

Monthly chapter business meetings are at 2 p.m. the first Sunday of each month at Colvin Community Center, 230 Freedoms Way in Radcliff. Dues are $30 per year, and even though many members are veterans and ride motorcycles, it is not a requirement to join. The club is committed to and is working on POW and MIA and veterans’ issues.
