I just got off the phone with Tim from Tim's Full Belli Deli BBQ Team and they are putting together a KCBS sanctioned competition on May 3&4 in Fremont, Wisconsin. The event will be help at a Jellystone Park campground so full hookups will be available. There are also cabins available if you'd prefer that.

Information is at http://mastersinmay.com or http://www.kcbs.us/events.php?year=2013&month=5&id=3874

So is this going to be strictly a comp? No fair or ancillary events going on? That's fine if it's the case, just curious. It's a little early, but we might go ahead and de-winterize, if we haven't already by then!

Can visitors gain admittance?

OK Guys, here's the deal on cabins. We have 30-36 reserved sites all next to each other (1 area) We did this after listening to the complaints about Warrens,wi. Send in application, reserve a site, call JELLYSTONE and talk to KATY, make a deal with her on a cabin, slow time of year could bring a discount. They have different tupes of cabins. If you wish to cook at the cabin, check distance to turn in, electricity, water, but ideally if you get a discount you can maintain site, and cook there which keeps teams together.

Thanks Tim, we're giving it serious thought. I only asked about visitors,because we have some rewinds on nearby Appleton who might want to stop by Saturday.

It sounds like a great time!

Okay Folks, Here it is, not only is Jellystone campground in off-season mode but their limited hours were cut more by a flood! Computer damage, the whole works, but Katy guarantees everyone is back on track, and doesn't want to see anyone not have a cabin. She is giving small discounts on all cabins, also! She can now be reached direct at

Hopefully this answers all the questions regarding CABINS.

I can vouch for this. I spoke with Katy yesterday. She was most helpful. Lets hope the floods and snow and all are gone by May :)

just an fyi - Bare minimum cabins with heat/ac and electric only are around 72 bucks a night with tax. Larger ones (or cottages with heat/ac plumbing/showers/kitchens) are close to 200. I was told the small cabins are close to the actual campsites as well

If we got a cabin would that be considered our assigned cooking area? Or would we have a separate cook space.

billm
02-01-2013, 11:47 AM
im not 100 percent but i was told we could cook at either space (campsite or cabin)but that the campsite is part of the entry whether you use it or not I guess.

We reserved 30-40 campsites all together, but realize some teams will take a cabin.

No guys there is no place here for Derogatory remarks! It is afterall the "BBQ BRETHREN" . As some of you know TIM'S FULL BELLI DELI" is new to BBQ Competition just finishing it's rookie year in 2012. Before that we did a test comp in Warrens,WI in 2011. Our first actual comp came at Lbertyville,IL in 2011, where we had our 1st ever call, with a 5th in brisket. ILLINOIS has been good to us and we have made many friends. It was at Libertyville,il where we had our best overall with a 4th in 2012. It was also in Illinois where we had our 1st category win with a 1st in ribs at Libertyville in 2012. So, Illinois has been good to us. We have heard grumblings in the past about Wisconsin teams that wouldn't come to Illinois to compete, but we aren't one of them. As of today we know we will be cooking at WESTMONT, MURPHYSBORO & LIBERTYVILLE.

They are working on some other surprises for our teams & judges! If you haven't heard about it check out mastersinmay.com. We also have an event page on FACEBOOK ....masters in may.

Well fellow brethren, with 10 weeks to go till the MASTERS IN MAY we are at 42 confirmed teams! More than half are already paid and we are a week or two away from setting up spots in the campground. Teams need to remember that we are limiting this comp to 48 TEAMS, with no exceptions. So... we have come to the point where sending in registration fees is a must to reserve your spot. Remember a 48 teams roster guarantees the $ 7500.00 purse ! So if you have a friend sitting on the fence, get him signed up! Also teams that have special needs regarding their campsite can message me and I will work with the committee to setup your spot at the event.
Once again I need to thank CAPTAIN RON for his help in rallying the ILLINOIS teams, We now have 9 confirmed ILLINOIS teams :clap2: Also our thanks to RICH PARKER and MARK RASMUSSEN & the Great Lakes BBQ Association, MICHIGAN wil be represented by 6 teams, and for the first time will be able to join the GLBBQA TEAM OF THE YEAR honors, and the BEAK TO BEAK challenge :clap2:

For those of you who dont know about the GLBBQA and their team of the year program, They have a Team Of The Year contest where it only takes 3 contest results to count. This a nice deal for most of us that cant compete a lot. This year for the first time Wisconsin teams and contests are included. All you have to do is be a member . I believe Sweetracks is administrator this season. Questions ? Give him a message . Knowing a few of the board members over there I think that with their growth this program will be outstanding. Also as a perk the leader of the overall TOY standings at the cutoff date for the world food championship gets an invite to that .

I'm in! 3rd comp, but 1st sanctioned for me. I'm competing under team name Smoke Infusion. I competed under Barbecuties in my 2 other events in Greenville (Now I bet Tim knows who I am, haha). That name was already registered so I finally came up with something else :) Can't believe the turn out for this event...I was #22 paid and was told there are 44 with verbal commitments.

Okay Guys, Don't all talk at once, but I am starting to help lay out sites for the MASTERS IN MAY. If you are paid and have a "special" need email me and I will do all I can when I talk to the committee to accomodate you.

They have one whole street of the campground that has 23 sites 9 back to back (18) , 1 single on one side of the street and 4 on the other side.
sites 151 thru 164 and 166 thru 174

They have one street along the pond with 12 sites facing the pond.
sites 251 thru 257 and 259 thru 263

They have another street with 8 sites 2 back to back (4) 1 single and 3 on the other side.
sites 56 thru 61, 71 & 72

some of these are assigned.

If you are using a cabin and cooking at the cabin let me know and I can free up some of the outside spots and bring teams in closer.

They have one whole street of the campground that has 23 sites 9 back to back (18) , 1 single on one side of the street and 4 on the other side.
sites 151 thru 164 and 166 thru 174

They have one street along the pond with 12 sites facing the pond.
sites 251 thru 257 and 259 thru 263

They have another street with 8 sites 2 back to back (4) 1 single and 3 on the other side.
sites 56 thru 61, 71 & 72

some of these are assigned.

If you are using a cabin and cooking at the cabin let me know and I can free up some of the outside spots and bring teams in closer.

Thanks

id like to know how far form turn in my cabin was ..i was told it was right next to the campsites where the cookers will be but now it looks like three different areas for sites? either way id like to keep my camp site since i paid for it in my entry fee and there is electric and water at the campsite (i assume)
I did PM you asking for specifics on things but never heard back..I can email you if that works better

Yes they rent golfcarts. Will you be cooking at your cabin or in a designated campsite? doesn't matter either way, just want to setup the sites

I'm sure we will just be staying in the trailer on the designated site.

The committee says things should get interesting now! The MASTERS IN MAY has 48 verbal commitments, and is limited to 48 teams. This means the mad rush starts to get entries paid to be guaranteed a spot. As of today 30 plus are paid. They are still taking registrations because verbal commitments are just that..... VERBAL. But at least the $7500.00 purse is a given. If you are already committed but not paid get your $$$$$$$$ in and guarantee a spot. If you aren't committed but want to attend send your money ..... because everyone knows money talks and BS walks.

Thanks,

Tim Schopp

I really hope we are doing this right! I have been in several businesses over 30 years and understand them well, but have only been involved in competition BBQ for 2 years. The MASTERS IN MAY has a limit of 48 teams, as we were getting close to having 48 verbally committed I let it be known on Facebook, the MASTERS IN MAY website and here at the BBQ BRETHREN. We are now at 51 verbally confirmed and 35 paid. We will still take any money and applications that come in until we hit 48, then start a waiting list. My question is this, some of these teams committed early on but have not paid, so in theory they could be left out of the event. Does this happen often?

Can't give you a definite answer Tim, but KY guess would be definitely yes, all the time.

But as long as you fill up its a good problem to have. You made clear its first come first serve. All u can do

Good Morning BBQ People ! With the Masters in May sitting at 51 verbally confirmed teams with a limit of 48, there will be no problem filling this comp. 40 teams have already paid as of Tuesday, so we are sure there will be a waiting list. This could not have been done without all the help from the BRETHREN! Now the committee asked me to go to that same well again. Including table captains the event needs 56 Certified Judges. The committe has a commitment already from 40. So, if you are not competing but would like to judge a first year event with a great mix of professional teams, please go to mastersinmay.com and download an application. Or if you know of a judge that would enjoy judging an early event in a beautiful venue, please contact them. :thumb:

I hear ya, last year we started out with Westmont and then Fair Oaks and that felt like a gauntlet. This year looks to be about the same start :doh: But I think it made us better cooks last year and hopefully it will do the same this year.
