Annual police and firefighter chili contest postponed

No chili next weekend.

The annual chili cookoff at the Milford Yacht Club, run by local police and firefighters to benefit Special Olympics, will not take place next weekend, as it usually does.

According to Police Spokesman Jeff Nielsen, the event has been postponed due to Storm Sandy damage to the yacht club.

The event typically sees firefighters and police officers creating their own chili recipes and then competing at a taste-off.

It features celebrity judges and Special Olympic athletes.

The Milford Mirror will publish the rescheduled date when it is known.
