MEETING NOTES OF YORE!!! (from the club archives)

9/25/79 - The picnic suffered from too few people and too much food.  There was enough chili for 100 people, and nobody showed up.  There was enough chili stored in people's freezers to last for at least a couple of years.  It was suggested that we use the excess chili for next years picnic.

To avoid future repetitions of the incident, Wheeler explained that there is a difference between an interest sheet and a sign-up sheet.

1/15/80 - Sunday, goof-off expedition at Happy Hollow Park.  Meet at Slayter Center at 7:00.  Bring your goof-off boots and hats.  FREE CHILI (probably fermented by now.)

2/29/80 - We got rid of all the chili.  Bill Coombs gave it to his little brother (poor kid).

==Brad's spicy, derick, super, brave, hungry, shiny, wet & wild, ascending, abnormal, bouncy, bio-inspired, annoying corner of weird stuff==

When I was a younger lad, my uncle taught me a lesson that I will never forget.  The chili most of you buy in stores and eat in restaurants is not real chili.  It's a fraud.  Why?




If you do not believe me, you can check the rules of the International Chili Society:


They will laugh you out of their chili cook offs if you even think about putting bean in your chili.
