OK it's PigFest time!

Who all will be there besides myself?
Who is vending this event as well as competing, besides myself?

Stop by and visit for a brew and Q, at 'Life Of Brine'! Look for the Brethren Banner.

Hope to see a lot of you down there.

Swamp Boys are in, competing and vending. Prolly our biggest vending weekend of the year. I predict an achy back.

See you there!

:sad: We won't make it this year. With the cost of fuel, the increase in entry fee, and moving the pros around we decided to take a break from it. We have been coming down there for the past 5 or 6 years but it is just getting to be a little too expensive for doing just one contest. Good luck to everyone and we will miss it for sure.

Richard,
Make sure you and Lori help Ford out, take good notes at chicken time! Really jealous that you can cook a comp in January! Watch out for those Whiskeybent boys!!
Best of luck Ford.

Looking forward to seeing all you down there. Please stop by and say hello. Due to some late work conflicts looks like I will be on my own, so PLEASE come by to visit as it looks like I will be tied to my site. Gotta figure out how I will compete and vend as a solo. Will have to limit my menu or I may have to give up vending altogether just to survive.

Looks like I don't have much of anything to do on that weekend. Probably swing by just to walk around and drink some beers unless anyone needs a DB or runner.

Russ I can certainly use a runner and help with comp stuff Saturday morning. Vending takes all Carolyn's time even with vending helpers.

Thats an easy one.....BECAUSE THEY CAN. Doesn't seem like it'll make any difference. As long as the main vending area stays the same, I'll be ok.

Just got the bad news that with the new layout, we won't be back to back with the Whiskey Bent crew this year. What a terrible year to miss out on a DJ until 1am.

Come on over any time, we will even allow you to make a request as long as it isn't between 6p-7p which is strictly dedicated to Hall & Oates or 9p - 10p due to it being reserved for classic 80's power ballads!

Well all of my requested songs would already be playing between 6p-7p anyway, so that works out perfectly. Play Rich Girl when the girl with the short skirt and camo jacket comes by.

I also signed up for the Judging class on Thursday. Hoping it might put me on the next level up with my competition Q. Anyone know who is cooking for the class?

Rub

Usually they invite the previous year's backyard gc to cook for the judge's class.

Just got a look at the new layout. Basically this just went from one of our best vending competitions to "not so much". Every year we've been, the area where the new backyard vending is, is like a ghost town. Not sure why the change, but I know where people flow in, and this isn't it.
