I know there is one in rochester, but do they ever have any closer then 7 hours away....NYC ? ..closer to long island...anyone ?

we can set one up if theres interest. We did it a couple years ago.

Depending on where in NY you are the one in MA might be 4 - 41/2 hours...probably still too far but figured I'd mention it

I believe that they have one every year prior to the Hudson Valley Ribfest. It's run by the events organizers. You may want to check out their site or shoot them an email.

takes me 3 hours to get to the inlaws in seaford, on a great day, lol meadowcreek, probably, another 1 the other way, perhaps 45 min...

looking at 3.3-4 hours depending on how far out you are.

hudson valley had them in the late winter and I believe a priority sign up to be a judge in Aug.

I would definetly be interested in local class. Hudson Valley did not do it last year or this so far.

How far is Hudson Valley ?
I would do if there was a close one...Not driving 4 hours
Maybe they should have one close since there seems to be contest popping up in our area..

i drove 4 hours each way to take my class. seemed a small investment in the grand scheme of things.

anyone in NYC, JERSEY, CT interested in having local to maybe the city ?

02-09-2012, 03:33 PM
I'd be interested. I would guess scheduling the sooner the better before schedules fill up.

02-09-2012, 05:48 PM
I would take it too!

02-10-2012, 10:07 AM

Sounds like momentum is moving in the right direction. Several of us helped cook and prep for the last class here on LI a few years back. I think Eric helped round up many of the candidates, Jerry and Linda were the KCBS Reps then. Maybe give Eric a shout out and see what may be feasible. If one is scheduled, I am sure several of us can help with the cook, prep and putting together the required turn ins for the prospective judges to evaluate.
