I'll be looking into this one! This weekend I'm doing the cookoff in New London sponsored by Earth Sense Energy in Green Bay. It has a $500 grand prize along with a new Green Mountain Grill Daniel Boone pit.

I've e-mailed the contact listed on the KCBS site twice in the past month and have not received a response. I was going back and forth between that one and the one in Kenosha the following week and have decided on Kenosha.

I've sent them two e-mails as well with no response. I sent in our entry for Kenosha this morning. We're undecided about Warrens. There are at least two other comps the same weekend, Ames, IA and Dubuque, IA. I guess we could do Warrens on 92&3 and then move to Dubuque for 9/3 & 9/4 :rolleyes:

Still no response from the organizer, but I noticed that the application is online now...

BUT... The prize info that is posted only lists prizes for GC and the top three in each meat, not the top two overall and the top five in each meat as required by KCBS. I've sent the organizer a question about this.

I read the application online, too. It says that set-up starts on Saturday at 7:30 am. Does that mean that the turn-ins and judging are on Sunday?

I have been unable to get a response as well......

The way I read it is a Saturday /Sunday contest.

No I didnt .I was just trying to talk with her and keep a good conversation on the size of spaces and the prize requirements. I am trying to stay a step ahead of the boogey man here cause I am sure he will get in soon. :pray: Next time I will mention timely emails .
