What a great day to have a Chili Cook-off! On Saturday, March 5th Freedom Biker Church had a Chili Cook-off which was hosted at Ft Bragg HD of Fayetteville, NC. The weather was perfect for eating chili because it was a little chilly and a whole lot of Sunny! It was 55º and very sunny. Lots of help went into this event people from Ft Bragg and Freedom Biker Church which was very much appreciated. Thanks for all the great music provided by Scott James who was the DJ of the day. This year Ft Bragg HD gave away a 2017 Street 500. The lucky winner was Robert Bass from St. Pauls. Approximately 150 people were entered for this by test riding or buying a bike.
Freedom Biker Church of Fayetteville, NC have been having this event for several years now. It is somewhat a fund raiser for the Church, but more than that, it is for just simple fellowship and a great opportunity to get out and get involved with your community. It is a great time of year to get out from being cooped up all winter and get to meet some new people. It is open to the public and every year it seems to have more contestants and more chili connoisseurs! You pay just $5 and you get a spoon and a fresh cup every time so you don’t mix the competitors chili up then you start digging in to all the entries! The people of Freedom Biker Church help get it together but anybody can enter to win.
There were 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners. Here are this year’s winners: 1st Place: Steele Angels $100 Ft. Bragg H D Gift Card and $100 from Freedom which they donated to building fund. 2nd Place: Perry’s Chili $75 Ft. Bragg H D Gift Card and $75 from Freedom. 3rd Place: Tammy's Award Winning Chili – $25 Ft. Bragg H D Gift Card and $25 from Freedom.

If you are looking for a church to try out, you might want to think about Freedom Biker Church. Now don’t get confused, you don’t have to be a biker to go to this church. It has various types of people and non-bikers (people that don’t ride) who attend. It is a place you can come and enjoy a great Sunday service. Come as you are and fellowship with them and enjoy the bands playing Christian rock music and more. If you have children of any age, it is very family oriented. They have classes for all ages. Sunday services start every Sunday at 10:45am, but come earlier to socialize. Hope to see you there.
