2003 Chili Cookoff was hot, hot, hot

The annual campus Chili Cookoff was an on-and-off success, running hot and cold during its 20-year life at UW-Green Bay. The 2003 edition of the mid-winter celebration, however, hosted at the University Union, was certainly one of the red-letter years. The competition was so intense that the Provost Office’s “Fire and Ice Chili” managed only a third-place in the voting. The entry’s creators, Provost Sue Hammersmith in a red devil’s costume and Associate Provost Tim Sewall in some sort of odd, shimmery, icy-silver gown, did rave reviews for their dishing-out-the-samples attire. Winner of the coveted Chili Bowl Trophy was the naughtily named “Party in Your Pants” entry of students Michael Brunner, Nick Wallner and Samantha Klinger. A great time was had by all.
