Photographer's Note

This is my first entry using my new Nikon D80. I am still learning all of the features but I absolutely love this camera.

Once a year the University of North Texas holds the "Eagle Fire Chili Cook Off" during one of the football tailgating parties. This year there were 13 teams that entered to compete for the coveted 1st place prize. At 1pm every team can begin cooking. At around 3pm the tailgaters have a chance to taste the chili and vote in the Peoples Choice Award category. At 4pm a crew of about 10 or 11 judges, ranging from Police Officers to the Chancellor of the University, sit down to taste every entry. The judges are given spoons, crackers, and beer. They take one taste from each entry and write down their score. In the end the best chili wins.
