Time for a little Monday morning brag session! No, we didn't win the Oscars, but Ana-Lab Corp. DID win **1st place** in the Southwest Chapter 6th Annual ESOP Chili Cook-off against 15 other teams!
The chili contest was held Friday, February 24, in Irving, TX, and was sponsored by Inland Truck Parts & Service. This was Ana-Lab's first time to take part, so it was especially gratifying to bring home the First Place win!
Note: For those unfamiliar with ESOP, it stands for Employee Stock Ownership Plan, which has to do with being an employee-owned company.
Hats off to the entire Ana-Lab team! Pictured standing (L-R) are Deric Nowlin, Elaine Tinkler, Scott Moss (chief chili cook), and Matthew Hardin. Also pictured is team mascot Sloan Moss, infant son of Scott. (The cute factor may or may not have given our team a slight edge with the judges... )
