2012 Polar Bear BBQ Challenge
February 24th & 25th, 2012
Boone County Fair Grounds, Columbia, Mo
100+ RV hook up's with electricity at each spot

We moved this contest from Hallsville to the fair grounds, because we only had room for 25 teams last year, and we turned away over 30 teams because of the space restriction.
Come one, come all, there's plenty of room and power for everyone.

We're looking to pay out $7500+ depending on participation. With 60 teams we should be up around $10,000.

Drop me a line, and I'll shoot you an application!

They are a very generous 20ft X 30+ft, probably closer to 35+

I'll need to check with Go Daddy to see what's up with that. The other e-mail is tied to our farm account through Yahoo which has been closed out. Been having issues with site security through Yahoo products lately and will kill those accounts soon. Sorry for the inconvenience.

BTW - I'm planning on sending the application in early next month - looking forward to your contest.

Don't jinx it, the rain has caused us to pretty much swim to turn ins before!!! Let's hope we have some of those record highs we've been having lately!

If you want we can register and pretty much guarantee a thundersnow blizzard storm that would include a likely tornado.

As of right now we aren't in...so assume 60 and sunny.
