We are going to try to pull it together in time. Does anyone know how many teams were there last year? I couldn't find much info on the website. Any room to pitch a tent?

We will not be at Hudson Valley because we are cooking at New Holland the week after. Back to back contests will surely have me sleeping on the family room sofa.

Perhaps MikeFick can confirm, but it looks as though Adam Perry Lang will also be competing. I received an email confirming that our check was received and Adam was also on the email list. Even more great talent to beat the pants off of us in our first KCBS competition! should be educational.

Can anyone provide me with info about late saturday check in times? Is this contest still open?

I just got the call that my new truck is at the dealership and I am finally ready to hit the circuit!!

When are most of you planning on arriving? My thought is to arrive Saturday afternoon/evening but there is nothing on the website about evening checkins.

according to http://www.daisymaysbbq.com/bbq.html
he will be at Amazin Blazin BBQ Cookoff, but it is possible he decided to do a local contest.

You should e-mail Mike or Stephanie to confirm what the last check in time will be, but I believe one of the e-mails stated something to the effect of teams are set up on Sat. they are not allowing anyone else to enter the site with vehicles. I'm guessing they were not planning on Sat evening arrivals.

I had to correspond to them when the e-mail came out this week that the cooks meeting for the grilling event on Sat was going to be held Friday evening instead of Sat morning per the contest reps. Since I was not planning to arrive until early Sat morning, I did not know how closely they were going to enforce the "mandatory" cooks meeting..

I was not even sure if I am still going to do any of the grilling entries, but if the Friday meeting was going to be monitored, I wanted to know if I would be given a refund for the grilling entry fee based on the change of schedule.

Luckily, they e-mailed the contest reps and they said it was OK if I arrived early Sat and would talk to me during the grilling meat inspection.

Congrats on the new truck! We are going early saturday so we can get settled. Stop by when you get there, though. We've got a ton of seafood coming from FLA and will have plenty to eat sat night. Obviously the same offer goes for all the brethren heading to new paltz!

It would be a real push to be ready for Saturday morning, I was never very confident the truck would be on time (it was scheduled for delivery monday). So I have not registered for the contest.

I am itching to pack the truck and go but it I need to see what kind of mood the wife is in after tomorrow, because right now she is experiencing a bit of "buyer's remorse". The reality of the expense hit her hard after a tough days work. Hopefuly tommorow she will be excited to take a little road trip in the new toy.

Definitely don't push to get there early. You are welcome to hang out with us whenever you arrive! I'll be the one sweating, doing all of the work, while the rest of the team drinks and relaxes :)

Thanks for posting the list Ted.... Where did you get it from ? Did I miss an e-mail from the organizer ?

I'm about 95 % sure I'm going to skip the grilling contest entirely on Sat. Gonna use that time to relax & hang out with everyone and and also prep a bit earlier for Sun.

Looking forward to seeing everyone who will be there competing, judging or just visiting.

I know Steve !!! That's why I'm leaving the 5% open window... I paid the entry for it, but since Sean's not with me this weekend, I have to pull his weight workload wise (and the extra expenses of not going 50/50)... My father's coming to help so it probably won't be so bad...

I'll probably get the urge to do the grilling when I go shopping later in the week... We'll see.....

Looks like the drinking pen will be open next weekend. I plan on coming down on Saturday to be a table captain. Spend thew rest of the day and night in the drinking pen then be a table captain again on Sunday. I need to leave soon after the last turn in to travel back home. Looking forward to going to a contest and not having to cook.

I have a hunch but it may not be politically correct!
Yours in BBQ,

are you kidding me politically correct
its apparent we have not met yet or you would not say that.
Today 08:56 AM

Will B.
We have met and it was a pleasure. We were casually introduced at the 2005 Hudson Valley Rib Festival on Sunday 8/21/05 by a Highland Rotarian, I believe it was Mike Fick. He remarked that he enjoyed watching you jump up 3 feet in the air when you won Sausage and Beef Steak on 8/20. I look forward to enjoying some of the best ribs ever and the beer. Thank you for the offer. I look forward talking to you in person. I look forward to our first comp. and some friendly words of advise. I am still contemplating my 3 guesses.
Yours in BBQ,
Cliff
