Thanks Pigman. I'm working closely with the organizers to make sure they take care of the teams. They are very receptive and want to make sure they put on a great contest that goes on for years to come. There will be water, electric, ice and working on breakfast for the teams. And best of all we finally have a competition in Cincinnati!

We'll be there, it's going to be a great event.
Thanks for coming. You're right its going to be a great event!

Gotcha, Congrats on your first comp! Now the bad news, you will be hooked and wanting to do every contest in a 5 state area and pretty soon you will be thinking California is not that far of a drive.:grin: If you need any help preparing for the comp let me know and I'll be glad to help.

I have been wanting to compete for the last 2 years. This will be my first comp but planning to do quite a few. Already thinking Cali isn't too far of a drive. Have actually been looking at a few comps out there as well. I might take you up on that offer though any help before my first comp would be very much appreciated. I know this weekend I am going to start doing practice runs and trying to get all my timing down.

Trying to get my teammate to drive up from Arkansas it sounds like it could be a great time! However with all the shopping options up there it could get expensive cause with the wife.

Old Dave, we will get in touch with KCBS and have it changed. It is a State Championship and qualifies for the Jack and is part of the Ohio Triple Crown.

Trying to get my teammate to drive up from Arkansas it sounds like it could be a great time! However with all the shopping options up there it could get expensive cause with the wife.

You are right about the shopping. Ikea is there and a huge outlet mall. Here is the location for your wife, 400 Premium Outlets Drive Monroe, OH 45050. Ha Ha.

Your teammate lives in Arkansas and you live in KY??? Wow that not even close. How many comps do you do a year? We would love to have you compete, let me know if you have any questions.

Right now I'm working on having a professional knife sharpener at the comp for the teams. Talking to a couple of people and the cost would be around $3.00 per knife. Would like feedback from teams that will be there. Does this sound like something you would like? I know it make a world of difference when preparing and trimming meat.

Like the idea of the knife sharpener !

Great! Hope to see you.. If you don't want your wife shopping we can put her to work as a volunteer :razz: or I can get her directions to some good shopping to keep you out of trouble.

KJ is correct. I have contacted KCBS to fix this. We didn't have the signed proclomation when we announced the contest but have since received it so that is what happened. I hope to have this correction soon.

Contest is still not listed as a State Championship on the KCBS site.

The KCBS listing for this event has been corrected and is showing that we are a STATE CHAMPIONSHIP!!!

:clap:

This is my girlfriend's first real KCBS contest (we are doing a rib contest in April) and I have only done a handful so should be fun for us.

BTW I did not see anything in the application about alcohol. Is it no alcohol event or a few beverages over dinner and after turn in are acceptable?

Be nice to bring a couple growlers of homebrew down and trade a glass for a tips.

go to www.voabbqbash.org and click on BBQ Competition. There is a current list posted. There is usually a slight delay between me getting a registration form and the team being posted, but what you see is pretty current.
