We'll be down on Wednesday night, cooking for a golf tournament on Thursday then sight seeing in the evening. Friday we'll dump the pit and hopefully set up next to that pesky Fat Angle team. Then down to a Phillies game, sight seeing later in the evening. Back to the site on Saturday. It'll be a busy weekend like the last couple years.

We will be there. We are looking forward to meeting everyone there. They sure have been advertising this event big time locally. I think that there will be a ton of people watching us "do our thing" at this cook-off!

I have not gotten any type of info pack in the mail. I was wondering about that. Hey, we only live around the corner so we will just show up and go from there.

Kirk,

I participated in the BBQ on the River (the event's previous name) the past two years and never received a competitor's packet in the mail. I just showed up the day of the event and Tom showed me where to set up.

ps, Pig Tippin' will be there.

Hey everyone.
I figure we will get there sometime Friday morning. We only have a few miles to drive.

Here's an FYI for everyone. There are at least 2-3 major food stores very close to the farm. Just in case you forget something.

I just found out for all you NY guys, if you want to see Joe Pepitone and get an autograph, he is at the Trenton Thunder game Friday night May 18. They are the Yankees Minor League Team, about 15 minutes away. The best seats in the house are only $10.

It's better then a Phillies game!

I went by the farm today to check out the market. They have a small produce section and everything looks pretty good. They will need to stock up alot more if they plan on selling to all the teams. It's more landscape stuff then produce. They also have a small deli section in there.

It looks like we will be in the big field right off the road. That's where they hold most events there. A dog show or something like that was there today. I wonder if they plan on having a place for us to park our trailers and trucks? It would be nice.

There's a Giant supermarket right up the road and a couple of others (Acme and something else) a little farther into Newtown if anyone needs them.

Just got a call from Tom Christine to confirm for the weekend.. Looks like 45 or 46 teams are signed up... That's a big jump from last year at BBQ on the River...

Tom somehow managed to talk me into entering the dessert category since it was included in the entry fee. Sean's gonna have to work his magic on that (assuming I can talk him into it !!) My strong point with dessert is eating it, not preparing it...

We'll either roll in Friday night around midnight and sleep in the SUV or get there Sat AM at sunrise...

See ya then.. Can't wait !!!!

Since I still have one of Joe Peps old hair dryers, I will be one of the Judges for this auspicious event and will be rolling in early Saturday afternoon and hopefully in time to be a Judge for the DESSERT KCBS event.
Then, will get ready and focused for the main event on Sunday, Judges meet at 10am.
So, I hope to mosey around Saturday afternoon and see you all then!
Looking forward to the weekend,
Wes

Guys,

Don't forget to visit us Polocks. We may be some of the ugliest bastards around but we are the most hospitable and friendly.:eek: :cool:

05-16-2007, 07:00 PM
We'll swing by for sure Guy, your rig's pretty easy to spot. We don't have any banners to identify us but we should have an American flag hanging from one of our canopies.

I really hope the rain is mild and sporadic if it has to come at all.

Sean and I are leaving around 10:30PM tomorrow night and should arrive by 1AM.. Plan on sleeping in the car and then pull in for check-in in the AM.

OK getting ready to head over in an hour or so. I won't mind the rain so much but I HATE WIND! I stopped by the farm yesterday. We are in the back in a nice area of the farm. They were cutting the grass and getting set up when I was there.

I'm going by the National Weather Service reports rather then the Weather Channel. NWS outlook is better. Lets hope they are right.

Rain or not, I'm planning on having some fun this week-end. Hey, there is a 30 foot high Miller Light bottle and beer tent close to our area. Things can't be that bad!

Be safe and see you all soon.

Thanks Mike, now I have the landmark I have been looking for!
I hope to be there early Saturday afternoon so I can mosey around and visit for a while, then do the dessert thing and get ready for Sunday's main event.
See y'all soon.
