Ten contestants entered their chilis in the First Annual Chili Cook-Off, held at Wesboro Masonic Temple on Friday, 27 Apr 18. All proceeds from the Cook-Off were donated to the Ottawa Mission.
Every seat was filled, as ticket holders lined up to sample the offerings, and enjoy the following fun-filled meal.
Judges for the Cook-Off were our own DDGM, RWBro Michael Nagrodski, and Chef Rick from the Ottawa Mission. The judges chose three winners for the categories of: best overall chili, won by Olive Nelson; the most innovative chili, won by Robert Kerr; and the runner-up best chili, won by the WM's spouse, Holly Hawkins. In addition, everyone who attended had the opportunity to vote on the people's choice of the best chili, and that was won by Brodie Fraser's Mother Janice.
$1054 dollars was raised for the Ottawa Mission!

Traveling Trowel in 2019
Having won the Traveling Trowel every possible night in the autumn of 2018, we decided to try and make it a clean sweep by winning the trophy every possible night in the Masonic year. Since we could not compete for the Traveling Trowel at our own DD night, it temporarily passed out of our hands to The Builder's Lodge. But we won it back again four nights later on the occasion of the DDGM's official Visit to The Builders. 10 brethren of Bytown were there. No other lodge even came close.
We would have won it at the Defender's DD Night too, but the meeting was postponed because of weather.
