Going to be fun time. I will probably get there Wed or Thur so the wife has plenty of time to get her fill of the outlet malls.

East side of the state. 1 Block from I-75. And about 7 miles from my house. Got to love that and the Michigan Eastside Judges.

They still have the Italian restaraunt in Frankenmuth ? Man that was a meal ! We were out at Birch Run for a fishing show and went to that place with the Educated Angler group .I think every one ordered something different and passed the plates around. WHEW .


Scottie you should take the girls and get them over to Frankenmuth for a town tour.Its a Christmas Town!

Davinci Italian Reatarant north of town. Bronners Christmas Wonderland is a place to see and Zehnders World Famous Chicken Dinner is a good place to eat.

Just wanted to update this thread with the latest information. Team/Judging apps can be found at: www.birchrunchamber.com

The Goodie bags (for both Judges and Cook Teams) will contain over $100.00 worth of gift cards/coupons to many of the stores in the Outlet Mall as well as some other stores (Meijers). I understand that you may not be able to use it the weekend of the event but they will be good for future use as well.

In reality your entry fee is only around $150.00 for a $10.000.00 prize pool!!!

Each team will also be given free entry into the entertainment tent each night. I cannot swing free beer (there is actually a law against that or something) but I can get you into the tent to hear some great Blue's music. Most of the Bands are Nationally known and have received numerous Blue's awards.

So here is an itemized list of things going on or things each team will receive:

A goodie bag with over $100.00 worth of gift cards to National Stores
Reduced rate at area Hotels
The Michigan Vietnam War Memorial Moving wall will be on-site
Funtastic Inflatables will be on-site for the kids
Mom 2 Mom sale on Saturday Morning inside the Birch Run Expo center
Free entry into the Entertainment Tent - Live Blues and cold beer!!
We have some really unique food vendors that will be on-site
The KCBS Great American BBQ Tour!!
Oh and did I mention a $10,000.00 prize pool!!

Sign up now and bring the whole family for the weekend!!

Just wanted to remind the folks that are coming that there are 2 really big attractions in Birch Run - The Prime Outlet Malls (bring your wife or girlfriend she will be happy for the entire weekend) and Tony's I-75 Restaraunt are both within walking distance (about a mile or so for the mall). For those that have not heard of Tony's they are known for large portions especially bacon. They have been featured on several TV shows for their portions. Just 2 more reasons to come on out!!
