We are VERY sorry that so many of the local teams will miss our contest. Mark your calendar for next year July 11, 12, 13. - we plan to be the first full weekend (including Friday) after the fourth of July.

We also had a planning meeting today, looking at possible vendors, possible sponsors, and some complimentary activities. A couple of suggestions (since it is at Charlestown Mall) - Carnival, Live Bands, Helicopter rides, hot air balloon rides, and who knows what else. These aren't guaranteed but things we are looking into.

If you are following us on facebook - we're open to suggestions for vendors, sponsors and activities.

We may also have opportunities for you with other events that we are involved with planning - reach out for more information.

It was confirmed yesterday, this is the weekend after we do the Sam's club in Traverse City, MI which will probably end up being 3 days gone, We are OUT for sure (as of now). . . Couple of good showings might change that thinking.

I have to say for me I'm pretty excited about this competition. This contest to me has memories and it's close to home. This was my first KCBS competition ever and I managed to get 2 walks, finished in the top 1/2 and took rookie of the contest. Scottie came over to help set me straight on a few things and as I was in the middle of getting things prepped Friday night, who came over to stop by and say hi...Dr. BBQ. His was the first BBQ book I bought, so this was an awesome surprise for me. Despite the rough start this contest thread, I for one, Kevin, am looking forward to it.

This is actually easier than the last time they did this. Previously, we had to go to a specific store near the venue. Trouble was, nobody at that store seemed to know anything about it! This time looks like all we need is the store receipt and the confirmation code provided at registration! EZPZ:thumb:

FirinUpTheFox
03-28-2013, 04:02 PM
you are correct - just need a receipt, however we are going to be attempting to work closely with the Dominicks in Geneva, IL to make sure they are aware and well stocked.
