    Default 2nd Annual JIMbalaya Cookoff

    Wanted to let you all know that there will be a jambalaya cookoff on April 4, 2009 Cajun Field before and during the home baseball game with Middle Tennessee. The event is to help raise money for the Jim Marks Endowed Scholarship Fund. This scholarship is for any student who is in remission or fighting cancer. The Scholarship was created in memory of Jim Marks, a student who was diagnosed with leukemia while enrolled at UL. While in remission, Jim had to drop out of school to work in the oil field to pay-off his medical bills. Unfortunately, the cancer came back to took his life in 2007. This scholarship was created so that other students fighting cancer can finish school, as Jim wanted to. Jim was member of SAE fraternity, the active chapter, along with alumni, work together to put on this cook-off to help raise money for the scholarship.

    We are asking for donations, sponsors, and teams to help make this event a success. Entry fee is $50 (team of 4 individuals), and registrations are due by April 3rd. Prizes will be awarded to the top finishers. For more information, please contact one of the following gentlemen:
    Brian - bxo2430@louisiana.edu
    Travis - tmeaux135@hotmail.com

    I have attached the Contestant Registration Form.

    Go Cajuns!

    I'm definitely not trying to be a pest............but why would they make this a "dry" event. I understand it's for a charitable cause but this is Lafayette, Louisiana....people absolutely love to have a few beers while they cook! Also, this cookoff is on Saturday, April 4, which happens to be a home baseball game.....lots of tailgaiting and drinking.

    I hope this doesn't turn some of the younger crowd and tailgating crowd away from entering...

    grinning as i type the moral of my story.... that it is probably a way if someone brought, let's say a plastic cup, to sip something ,they consider to be refreshing for" brunch" as one cooked .. i suggest orange juice

    yes, young william has plans to see if he can grow into his "potential"

    This is a great cause. I went to HS with Jim, sat behind him in Geometry. Had a couple of classes together at UL also. Jim was a great guy. Sadly I'll be out of town Sunday the 4th, but will be donating.

    It is my understanding that their meaning of "dry event" is that there won't be any sold there, not necessarily that you cannot have it. I definitely plan on having some BEvERages while I cook. I will check and let you know for sure.

    About the whole drinking during the cookoff....the deans at UL are making us follow or risk management to a t on the cook-off. Our nationals will not allow us to serve any alcoholic beverages at the event, which is why it is a "dry" event. However, our alumni will have a tent set up OUTSIDE the cookoff and will be selling beer.
