I submitted my entry a few weeks ago, but haven't gotten any information. Contest is coming up this weekend. Anyone else going that has gotten any information on the contest?

I got this on April 26:

"Greetings from Historic Valley Junction!

I am writing to you today to confirm your BBQ team, Big T'z Q Cru, as a contestant in Smokin’ In The Junction 2012. The contest will be held Saturday and Sunday May 26th and 27th. We anticipate that teams can begin setup at 8:00 Saturday morning and judging will follow the KCBS turn in schedule beginning at noon on Sunday. Additional details will be provided as we get closer to the contest date. There have been significant changes to the site plan allowing us to assign spaces in advance and not have teams blocked in. If you have any questions in the meantime, the best way to reach me is via e-mail. Thank you for your support of our contest. I look forward to seeing you Memorial Day Weekend."

I would contact him if your check hasn't been cashed.

I don't see a cashed check, so that could be the problem.

They can't find my application and they are full. Unless someone drops, I'm not coming. I was really looking forward to this one, too. Michael and I were going to race BMX on Friday and then do a Sat-Sun road trip together to DM. Sucks.

And if you do not want to cook with Doug, you can cook with me. I don't have shirts, but I can supply wimmins and booze...well at least booze. :biggrin1:

Mine was in on time, but they never got it or lost it. I sent mine in the end of March. It happens. I've now confirmed all of my contests that I've entered. Since I'm set up to cook anyway, I'll end up practicing at home.
