Hundreds turned out for the Third Annual Chili Cook Off at the Athletic Club of Bend Sunday.  For the past two years, the event has been a fundraiser for the Education Foundation for Bend La Pine Schools, and this year, organizers added a rail jam. Over 20 restaurants participated in the contest that was judged by a celebrity panel, including KBND's own Julia Gray. The crowds eagerly lined up to taste a wide variety of chili's, with ingredients ranging from beef and pork to alligator and salmon. Then after the chili pots were empty, people went out to the courtyard to enjoy a high-flying Rail Jam sponsored by Skjersaa's Ski and Snowboard. Organizers don't have final numbers on the amount raised, but noted there are far more people attending this year. As for the chili, the entry from Pronghorn won the cook off with Rockin' Dave's Bagel Bistro & Catering coming in second.
