Transcript M. Cook-Off Heats Up 'ention Texas to anyone and they automatically think of cowboys on horseback, oil wells and beautiful women. Nobody mentions an event that reveals what the state represents as far as taste. The Great Chili Cook-Off is just such an event. The 11th Annual Chili Cook-Off was organized by the Institute of Electrical Electronic Engineering, and involved 22 booths from various organizations such as Compaq, Texas Instrument, General Electric and Society of Women Engineers. According to Rajan Patel, president of IEEE, each organization donated $100 for a booth as well as a portion of the proceeds to an engineering scholarship fund. Compaq representatives said, "This event offers many opportunities to meet people and to just enjoy great chili." General Electric, meanwhile, jokingly referred to their secret recipe as they held up a can of dog food. Other events that centered around the cook-off were volleyball, tug-of-war, car bashing, fast pitch and basketball. Free soft drinks were provided by Pepsi and free beer provided by Miller, which obviously helped attract such a large crowd. "We brought 40-pounds of meat, but with the free beer, we expect to definitely sell out before night," said a GE representative. In addition, entertainment was provided by three bands: The Flames, State Secrets and Slow Children. Winners of the chili contest included National Society of Black Engineers and Brown and Root for best overall chili.-Thao Vuong 0> tudents wait in line to get some of the chili.P/ioro by Thomas Nguyen. a _/ne of the participants in the cook-off samples his own chili to see how it is coming.
