Cameron University's Chuckwagon Cook-off

LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - Cameron University hosted their Chuckwagon Cook-Off Saturday afternoon.

It's one of the activities for their weekend homecoming celebration. The cook-off was between the alumni, current students and faculty. The student chuckwagon cooked stew while the other wagons were used to cook chili and beans.

Cameron senior Annelise Carpenter says the event takes a lot of work to get ready for.

"It takes a lot of work, we have guys that bring in dirt and wood and stuff that we can burn all day," said Carpenter. "Then we set up the wagons last night, we stayed up here til about 10 or 11, then we all go home, get a couple hours of sleep and then were all back up here about 6 or 7 in the morning."

Carpenter says the event is a tiring, daylong event, but that it is worth doing every year.
