We are going out to Rancho Cordova to judge this contest. Flying from Georgia to San Francisco (more flight options than ATL -> Sacramento) and driving across to Lake Tahoe for a little R&R then to Rancho Cordova for the contest. I doubt we'll know anyone there. Are there any Brethern planning to attend this one?

We'll be there. It's in our neighborhood; if you have any questions about the area let us know.

It will probably be HOT in Sacramento :mad2: (100 degrees is not unusual that time of year) cool in SF (65 degrees for the high is not unusual), and there's no telling in Lake Tahoe - could be snow...could be 100 :confused:

Stop buy and say "hey".

Safe travels!

We bought an air conditioner for our trailer as a precaution.

BTW, my team is Bang A Drum, stop by and say hey.

Can one walk around Saturday night without being a competitor?

Usually that is cool, but since this is a first year event I am not exactly sure of the logistics.

Just walk in and act like you know what you are doing...like picking up the trash...

Everyone should leave you alone then. Stop by Huminie's Hogalicous BBQ!

Thanks for your replies everyone. We're looking forward to visiting with Bretheren while we're out there. 100 degrees, you say? We haven't quite hit that in Georgia yet but we're sneaking up on it. Yours is a dry heat, right :heh: . We plan to raft the American River on Friday. Our original plans were to go down the Middle Fork but we had a call that the water is too high to run that section so we're going down the South Fork. Are there other "must see/do" things in the Sacramento area that we might not be aware of? Our preferences run to science/natural history/aeronautical museums, local history, wineries and breweries.

Since turn in is on Sunday I'm assuming everyone gets set up and begins prepping on Saturday? If so, we'll plan on making a pass through to meet folks then.

See you in a few weeks.
Julie

According to one spot on this website there is a carnival July 1-4, but I only see it in one spot so I'm not sure about it. Worst case just act like you belong like Huminie said!

If you are up running the river you could drive another hour or two and get to Sierra Nevada Brewing.

There are also more wineries than you can count...

If you are up on the river Coloma where Sutter found gold is not far away.

umm...and ya it is a dry heat. As long as you are in the shade the heat is not terrible.

By the way, the picking up trash comment was a reference to your screen name basuraman!

I love it when someone makes that comment. 105 is 105 whether it's dry or humid - I don't care what anyone else says!! Looking forward to judging this one, it sounds like fun.

Haahaa! Ya...I know humidity sucks and can make a temperature feel hotter than it really is...been there, done that...but at some point hot is just hot.

Hope to meet you next week! Make sure to pack plenty of 9s! In fact bring enough to share with the other judges...NorCal judges don't seem to carry many on them...:rolleyes:

LOL

OK, we've packed the 9's (amazing how much room they take up in the suitcase :wink:) and we head west tomorrow morning. We'll see everyone next Saturday. We're told we're easily recognizable, we're the ones that talk funny :grin:

Howdy folks, I just threw my hat in the ring for this one. I will try and make it up there for the Saturday potluck, but I have a lot of ground to cover between now and then.

While I am writing, at this point I will be flying solo for this comp. Any Brethren care to join the Jonny Rotisserie and the Auspiteers team this weekend?

Please send me a PM. I am going to make a separate post for this as well.

Looking forward to meeting you up there!

Looking forward to meeting you! (Although maybe I did last year at the Royal...were you near the Pickled Pig?

Sure enough, that was me/us! Were we neighbors in KC? What's your team name?

Either way, looking forward to seeing you again in Rancho Cordova!

I was just visiting. I was a guest of Border War Smokers and was visiting Paul and team. I stopped by and asked a lot of questions about your pits...they looked really cool!

My team name is Huminie's Hogalicious BBQ....see you Saturday!
