April 8, 2017- The Sacramento Australian Football Club competed in the 2017 Sacramento Beer and Chili Fest. Two of our club members, Isaac Seckora and Makenzie Seckora (Carr) represented the club and prepared the chili they hoped would win! Loaded with grilled pork jowl bacon, beans, jalapenos, onions, green peppers and Isaac's secret spices, this batch of chili tasted like a top contender! It was a tough competition, however the Peoples' Choice award was just out of the clubs' reach. Better luck in 2018!
