October 2, 2010 Cancellation Note:

From Steve Otto's newspaper column yesterday:

"Saturday's Steve Otto Chili Contest has been canceled. Like so many things these days it was money that did us in - more precisely, a lack of it. I feel bad, and not because I won't have an opportunity to eat 60 or 70 cups of the stuff.  We have managed to raise thousands of dollars for nearly two dozen nonprofit organizations and charities through the years. For that I want to thank all of you who came out year after year to support the event.  I even will miss the likes of Cowboy Chuck, Margarita Jack, the Red Hot Tomatoes and even the fabulous Sleazettes."
