thanks!

No problem, Shannon of Iowa Wild Hogs(fellow Brethren) called me and said why dont we combine forces and do this one and split all the cost for meat and entry. He has a camper and knows I dont like to drive much so I told him I would take care of all the fuel costs from here.

Planning to have an event in May 2014 and looking for a little feedback. This would be an annual event and toying with the idea of trying to make it a KCBS event. Thoughts?

Not sure on a few of the details, but know it will be held at Haymarket Park and will go during a Lincoln Saltdogs game.

If you want to integrate with a game, I would recommend doing a people's choice on Friday evening before the game. It could be something free (included with game ticket) like a couple of chicken wings or maybe a buck a bone ribs. Make it worthwhile for the teams to participate and introduce the teams and name a winner at the seventh inning stretch. Give the people's choice teams 3 or 4 tickets each and a section to sit together.

If there is a Saturday game, I would start it after the turn-ins are done and maybe do awards in the stadium just before the game.

Do baseball themed trophies like a mini bat on a plaque for categories and maybe framed #1 and #2 jerseys for GC and RGC.

Could be a fun contest and we need more contests that are public friendly.

Check on the dates of other contests and try to stay a couple weeks apart. A lot of teams don't like to do contests on consecutive weekends.

PM me if you want to discuss this offline.
