Mother Nature wasn't in the most hospitable mood on Saturday, but chili lovers from around the area were not to be denied out at Aviators Stadium. The Chili Shootout, windblown and cold, still managed to crank out the fun, the music, and the chili.

In case you couldn't make it, here's a look at some of the sights (and scents) you missed (all photos courtesy of Rob Carroll, Townsquare Media):

Here's a look at the 1440 WROK/Lindstrom Travel table. Thanks to John Sturm and company for incredible chili along with the laughs and fun they brought to the day. We didn't win the radio competition, but there's always next year!

Thanks to all who attended, and all who worked so hard (and braved the weather) to make the Chili Shootout another great event.
