The final event left from the popular winter festival of earlier times in Almonte titled “Chili Days” was held on Tuesday,Feb.18 at the Almonte Arena. Twelve teams of seniors competed for the handsome trophy which carries names of winners back to the 1980’s.

The teams were selected at random so everyone was set for a fun day. Thanks to all the volunteers who served as referees and scorekeepers and to the Executive of the District 7A Senior Games Association who assisted convenor Marilyn Snedden. It was also fortunate that 2 people were able to fill in at the last minute when 2 players came down with the flu overnight.

Mississippi Mills provided coffee and timbits to start the day and Leatherworks Catering served a fine lunch complete with pie!

The winners of the trophy were Sandra Lowry and Ben Burger who defeated Charlotte Costello and Richard Fitzgibbon in the final playoff game.
