just right up the road definitely going to look into this one might be there competing but do have one question never competed before do you have to pay for KCBS membership then pay the entry fee or does the entry fee cover the KCBS membership thanks

the only event that requires a KCBS membership is the Sam's club events. The entry fee does not get you a membership either.

I think you will get some MI teams. This is past the MI bbq season, and I know a lot of teams look to extend their seasons a bit. If we could only get some in northern IN, IL, or anywhere in MI at the early part of the season....maybe April or May

I tried to get them to have it early in the season, they are nervous want plenty of time to plan and make it successful .

You'll have less competition from other events in the fall I think. Anything outside of the normal June-August time frame is awesome!

Also Jeff, I don't remember if I told you about the organizer's round table that will be taking place at the GLBBQA annual meeting. But it might be a good opportunity for you guys to get the word out and pick some more brains. If you want some info let me know.
