Arlee,
Best of luck with this ambitious project.

You really are coast to coast and border to border.

Any thoughts of cloning yourself to manage all of this?

Arlie I met the people that are putting on Dana Point a few weeks back at Pala...can't remember their names right now but they were really nice..they told me they hired you as the promoter..I immediately told them you just hired one of the best in the biz!..I mentioned how well Mesquite was ran and told them Dana Point should be just as good or better..so how about making it part of the series?

That is why we moved it to sat / sun so teams could cook both. I dont have control over where they want to do these as they own radio stations in the area and CBS is on board there with us.

I like that Taylor, MI. contest. I could walk to that one. :thumb::thumb::thumb: Also Sam's Club 2.5mi away in case any one needs something.

Arlie, will the cook teams be in the two big parking lots in front of the community center?

Someone posted on Facebook that the Chester PA event has been canceled. Any truth to this?

I sure hope not. This will be the third contest cancellation for me this year. I did not see anything on the KCBS site or their official face book page. I hope you are wrong.

My email said the Chester event was due to a contract issue with the casino. Honestly, this is frustrating. I think the sponsors should have all of the major details worked-out before they announce an event. IMO.

I agree, The Mich comp cancelled as well. What's up with that?. They put it up against an established event in Mi ( bad move). The MI teams would gladly support Taylor if they could work out a stand alone date. Hopefully next year Mich could add another weekend

We sent in an app for the Buffalo Comp 3 weeks ago and haven't gotten a confirmation email, letter, call...etc We called a number and left a few messages, but no answer. We just need to make sure it was received and that we are good to go.
