I'll make sure this Friday, but generally.. We get the lot after 5 on Thursday.. so we should be able to park in there Thursday evening. Not sure when water and electricity will be on. Should be some time Thursday.
I'll get back with you on Thursday arrangements.

We're revamping the layout. All but a very few will be in the main lot. Extremely large RVs might be parked on the street just in front of the lot. But we should have room for everybody in the main lot this year.

Yup. Thursday arrival is fine. We'll have the lot after 6pm. Might want to call or email the office and let Becky know you are coming early. I know I'll be rolling into my spot that evening.

Per the brickstreetbbq.com website, the sign up period has been extended to May 31st.
We are currently a few teams short of the minimum 25 teams requirement for a State Championship. If you are planning on signing up, please let the office know. And if you know a team that is on the fence, give them a push.
It takes 25 teams for the State Championship to count and it really takes 40 teams or so for the organization to be able to afford the $10,000 prize pool.

I expected the Sams Club events to bite into the local contests and this may be an example.
Without team participation to cover most of the prize pool, this event and others may see a decrease in prize pools.

Just curious...if they are short on teams, why have a deadline at all??

roksmith

The deadline is meant to get teams to get their apps in early so the organizers can plan out the best lot layout and make sure they have adequate infrastructure in place. I'm sure the deadline will be as flexible as it needs to be to allow all to participate (up to 50 teams). But, things like power, water, and the right number of judges are much easier to obtain if the organizers know a couple of weeks in advance who all is coming.

Our plan is to be there. We are working out a few logistical details as we also have a contest in Florida that weekend so trying to make sure we have both events covered before we send off the registration.

I figured you guys would be up there.. Good Luck!!
Although.. with our weather the way it's been this year, I'm expecting more like 65 degrees :shocked:

Hey Rob,
Are you teaming up with Danny, or competing separately?
Just trying to get a team count.

On the website it looks like we have 18 teams but 48 judges signed up, how will that work out?

roksmith
05-25-2011, 10:04 AM
Should have plenty of judges then I 'spose. :)
Realistically, more teams are expected. There are half a dozen(more or less) who have either indicated verbally that they are coming or have the event listed on their webpage as attending. The event had about the same number of teams signed up last year at the same point and ended up with 39 teams.
Don't know how it will shake out this year, but that's why 42 judges are listed. More actually applied, but the rest were put on a waiting list I believe.

Just found out that the person who updates the website has been out this week with a family emergency. I will stop in the office Friday morning and update the website with any recently received entry forms if it doesn't get done by then.

You're good Rob. I just spoke to Danny today.
Becky's just been out this week, so no website updates.
I'll get it updated by Friday.

Website has been updated with all who have at least RSVP'd to the office. I know of one other team who says they are coming.. so that will get us to 27. The State Championship will be valid, now I just hope we add another 10 teams or so to make things more interesting.
