OK, once again we are going to attempt to get information about this comp. Last year we struck out in doing so, and we got very discouraged and didn't bother.

Looking at this year, it is sure looking like a lot more of the same (no info, people not returning emails). Does anyone have any info on this, other than the blurbs found on sailfest.org? Looks like the link from NEBS and KCBS are to the exact same place as last year (neffproductions - no useful info whatsoever).

Yep and thats all we know. And she was wondering why she barely got 15 last year.

Doh. OK, thanks. We have an extra comp to gamble with as we had to pull out of this weekend's RI comp. Maybe check out the Hudson Valley instead. Too damned bad too. This is a heck of a lot closer for us. But if it's not run right, it's not worth our time for sure.

It was a well run event, but they did a poor job making teams aware of it. Looks like that is happening again. It's right on the water in New London, and...it's a auto-qualifier. Sure, a bunch of jokers won it last year :becky: but other than that I recommend it.

I can answer some questions about it. PM me or ask here. I am planning to cook it this year.

Sorry to hear you guys aren't going to RI.

Ken and Kathie Dakai are the reps. I'm sure they have information on it.
Maybe you could give them a call or if Ken or Kathie read this thread they'll answer a few of your questions. Rich and I ran it last year. Good contest.

Great comp i agree! Sailfest just ended so that may have something to do with it.

Yeah we are bummed too. Unavoidable I'm afraid. Kick some butt! Chris Lilly... meh! :blah:

Regarding NL, do you have a cooks packet from last year perhaps? May help me wrap my head around the event a bit more.

That's good to know. Guess we are all supposed to call her? Seems very inefficient. They have a website, why not use it?

I guess I am looking for the typical on-line presence that provides cook packets, registered team lists, cook site information, competition information, etc.

If it was the kind of contest that handled out free beer at the cook's meeting, one shouldn't say that in a public forum.

The organizer is back in the office and answering emails. The event is on. $4600 prize pool, 10x30 spots - but will go longer if you ask ahead of time. (Some of the sites are on the concrete pier - so they can go longer but not wider. I got my RV, trailer, and tent set up last year no problem.)

It's an auto-qualifier, KCBS sanctioned, and counts towards NEBS TOY.

Maybe I should lift the curse off of Q haven. I wonder. It only took a chicken bone and a fox ligament to put the curse on him... and I can only place the hex on one person at a time...

Harry Soo seems so much more deserving.... The guy is getting on my nerves!

I need a Gerbil, Duct tape, Nyquil, a KCBS score pad, and some aluminized silicone powder to remove Q Haven's Curse. Oh... and since I am in Texas now... a BetaMax home recorder. If I was in the region a simple Panasonic Laser Disc of Liza at Carnegie Hall would do.
