I got word today that the contest is being canceled this year, anyone know why?

From what I read on Ray Basso's forum, economics/lack of sponsors this year.

Very sad. Not taking anything away from other organizers, but that contest has to be one of the very best organized contests in the US. They focus so much on the cooks and their satisfaction. We are going to miss it and hope that they can come back next year. They certainly don't deserve to have to cancel it.

From their website...

Cherokee Pignic won't be held in 2012.* Please check back for details on a 2013 event.


Sad news, such a great event.

This is/was one of our favorites for sure. Hope it comes back next year. Everyone
that helped run this one was the best. Really nice folks for sure. Here's hoping
we get to go back next year.

I was going to attend this as my first comp. Do you all have any suggestions on other good comps in the Altanta area this Fall?
