I wish KCBS's website had an easy way to search which competitions are held on Sat./Sun. but they do not. Can you all suggest some good competitions that will probably happen in 2014? I would kind of like to plan on going to some. :thumb:

I think this would be a fun one to cook, but maybe a little expensive :-D

My wife just started a new job and wont get off until 6pm on Fridays but is off on Saturdays and Sundays as well as the summer. So during the school year we too are looking at trying to find more Sat-Sun contests so that way we can start our season earlier and keep going later. Right now what I am doing is just as soon as I see a contest listed for next year on the KCBS website I check how far it is away and then on a calender I check to see if Fri-Sat or Sat-Sun.

The competition that was held in Davenport last June was Saturday/Sunday. They had some issues with power and water availability, but it was the first time at that site, so they should be able to resolve those. I haven't looked to see if it is listed for 2014 or not.

It is listed Ron L and it is a Saturday Sunday again. It is after school lets out for Summer so we will see, already on our list, but i appreciate some of the other info you gave as well. That may help determine alot. It is 291 miles away from me so still barely in my travel distance.

I wish there were more Sat / Sun events myself. The wife doesn't like it when I use all of my vacation time to hang out with my bbq buddies. :-D

You can say that again, I had to run a 100 foot drop to get electricity that I paid for!
They also cashed my check, but lost my entry! I thought parking was a pain in the butt. I don't know why they didn't just throw us out into the green space along the river.

Is this going to happen scottie? Was in the early planning stages of a hangover at libertyville when I thought we had this discussion. Could be fun.
