Anyone know what happened here? Why was it cancelled?

I have sent a message in to the organizer asking her why it was cancelled.

I hope Steve Reynolds is OK - he had some health issues a couple three years ago -

Thanks for the heads up -

They told me last week they cancelled due to low entries. 3 weeks out they had 13 and they were afraid they weren't going to make it.

No notification to those that entered?
No posts or call to encourage teams to enter? Its one of only a few that weekend.
Too bad.

Here's what I found:

Hello there -

I just heard that the Smoke on the Prairie BBQ competition has been cancelled. Can you tell me why this happened?

Is Steve Reynolds OK? [organizer who had some medical problems a couple few years ago]

Thank you for any information you may be able to provide -
Thank you for your concern. Steve is fine. We, along with other competitions, have experienced a decrease in teams this year. Therefore, after much deliberation and discussions with KCBS, we decided to cancel the contest this year with hopes of better turn out next year.

We sent emails out to all of the registered teams.
