We have been approved and posted to the KCBS website.:clap2:

The 2nd Annual Parkinson's Smoke Out will be a 3 day event with live music, beer garden and silent auction. New for this year we have two neurological specialists coming to host a seminar on Parkinson's Disease.

This past April was a huge success and I aim to make every year a little bigger and a lot better. :thumb:

The prize purse is $10,000 and I'm paying 10 spots in all categories, Grand and Reserve Grand.

This is a benefit for Parkinson's Disease Foundation and any donations are greatly appreciated.

Information about the event can be found at www.facebook.com/pdsmokeout & www.bobwaltersbbq.com

Located in Evansville, Indiana along the Ohio River and at Tropicana Evansville (www.tropevansville.com)


Hope to see you there!

Bob

Thank you for making that long trip. I know the cost and effort associated with it, I'll get your new rig a spot no worries.

I had a thought the other day while talking with one of last years competitors. Being as this is a benefit for Parkinson's Disease research and some spots along the river are better than others, what do you think about auctioning off spots.

Say you want a particular location, you pay an extra $20 for it. If someone else wants that spot then the auction begins, the guy/gal that pays more gets it. What do you think? If this is a good idea, I'll mark each location this year and if you want that number at the 2015 event you'll simply request it on your entry. I would then contact the head cook if there were to be an auction for that spot.

Thanks for the feedback guys!

No, Benton changed their date to this contests weekend not the other way around.

Bourbon Barrel is correct. The first weekend of April is what I selected for this past year, and I plan to keep that going forward. Benton was on the last weekend of March. For some reason they changed their date. I think it's unfortunate that they did that. It seems that KCBS feels the distance between the two events is acceptable.

Bob - I posted the question on your Facebook page and was wondering if there was any updates on discounted room rates for comp teams at the Tropicana?

I don't expect to get details from Tropicana until after the first of the year. I'll post those updates on the facebook page (www.facebook.com/pdsmokeout (http://www.facebook.com/pdsmokeout)) and on my website. Thanks for signing up early, it makes my job a little easier later on.
