The York Jaycees' Chili Cookoff has been canceled.

The event was scheduled for Saturday at local Bob Hoffman Field, according to Zach Zimmerman, the organization's management vice president.

He said the organization didn't have enough time to "pull everything together" and decided about two weeks ago to not do the event.

Several teams that had already signed up for the event were told about the cancellation. The organization also listed its decision on the event's website at

Zimmerman said there are plans to resume the cookoff tradition next year.
