This year the David Wood Memorial Chili Cook-off had seven entries. Chili chefs included Ed Tanner, Rick Campbell, Adam Gross, Laura Rodgers, Travis Bush, Debbie Bush, and Buddy Wallace. The overall winner this year was Brother Adam Gross, receiving a total of $204 in votes. This makes Brother Adam the unofficial Mayor of Petersburg for the ensuing twelve months, or until his successor has been installed. Brother Adam also won first place in the traditional category. Second place in the traditional category was Brother Rick Campbell, while Brother Ed Tanner finished a distant third. Winners in the exotic category were Brother Travis Bush, first place, Debbie Bush, second place, and Laura Rodgers, third place. Brother Buddy Wallace finished first in the hot category. Brother Adam also won the split the pot and donated his winnings back to our Christmas Fund for Kelley Elementary School.
