Just picked up a copy of the Sayville (NY) Chamber of Commerce "Discover Sayville Summer-Fall 2007" Events calendar and noticed the following:

Sat. Oct. 20th and Sun. Oct. 21st: Fall Festival and BBQ Event - 1st Annual "Battle of the BBQ Brethren", Kansas City Style BBQ Society Competition, Food and Exhibition. Gillette Park and the Common Ground.

I had heard "rumors" of this, but I hadn't heard that it had all come together. Should I be cancelling my reservations in Dover?

So this was the big announcement? I was just going to ask today what was happening with that. What a drag Phil that you didn't get to make the announcement yourself but it sounds pretty cool anyway. How do you get in?

Its Willys announcment..

I was a decoy. :)

WillyB gets all credit here for coming up with this, and BigBarry and motoeric have been working the details, doing footwork, planning, etc... (I just came in when they asked if they can use the name.) its got potential to be a great event.. we just have to get the ball rolling.. time is short.

Phil,

Sorry if I stepped on your surprise. What with public notices out, I assumed the event was general knowledge that I had somehow missed.

When it comes to applications etc, i am always last minute. Earlier this year when the announcement was made for Dover , Vinny sent me a message and THAT day i printed an application and mailed in my payment. I felt so good doing that because Dover is a contest that really want to be a part of. From what i have heard it is a great event. Besides it being a contest I love that track. I go to see NASCAR Nextel Cup races every year , it is a fantastic location. It really kills me that instead of driving 4 hours i can go to to a contest that is only 40 minutes away. Unfortunately i have to say that i wish the battle to be a great success but a am still gonna go to Dover.

I really wish the date could have been different but I understand that this date tied in with other activites at this contest site....

I know some involved will be dissappointed, but I will be competing in Dover as well based on previous committment, the positive feedback on last years event, the large team count, and the fact that it's my wife's birthday and if I take her to Dover she can stay in the hotel/casino on site and feel like she's getting a weekend away out of it.

I wish all involved great success with this contest and wish I could have been competing here as well. I know you guys have been working very hard behind the scenes. It will be a lot of work from now up to and including contest day, but the reward will be great and it's for a good cause.

Maybe next year !!!! Assuming it's decided that there will be a year 2 after this one is over.
It would be even better if the dates did not have to conflict to take advantage of two contests in the fall.

I'd certainly love to be there with everyone this year, but if Dover's got as well run of a contest as I hear (with on site Internet hook up !!) and continues to grow in team size and bigger cash prizes (that I one day hope to actually take home slightly more than lunch money that I get now) I'd hate to miss out and end up needing to be on a waiting list next year ..

Sorry that the dates conflict. It sounds like a great idea and I hope everything goes exactly as expected. That being said,Vinny,Steve, you won't be sorry going to Dover. It was run extremly well last year and with their money and commitment, I can't see any reason it won't be at least as good if not better this year. Besides it's a whole 30 minutes from my house. See you in Dover.

Last year's Dover event was mainly the reason that I got into the fine mess (BBQ competitions) with my uncle. You guys won't be disappointed in Dover.

If anyone is interested in or just willing to help out in any capacity with this event, PLEASE let me know. Drop me a PM.

Whatever level of help that you could offer would be appreciated. Whether it stops at some friendly advice or includes volunteering onsite, we could use a hand.

This includes judging!

This is our chance to start a Long Island tradition, but we need your help to make it a success. Your involvement would be greatly appreciated.

Remember, only you can prevent forest fires.

Attention Long Island Brethren:

We need some folks to help man a booth at the Sayville Summer Fest this weekend. Breast Cancer Help is hosting the booth and it's there to promote the BBQ Battle at the Fall Festival.

Summer Fest is a great family event: 80,000 people last year, loads of vendors, food, rides, etc.

We just need a BBQ person there to chat up the visitors about the event, BBQ, etc. Any time you can give is appreciated.

If you can make it, they are at booth 50.

Please call my cell if you are able to come down and I will coordinate the times. 917 - 532 - 4586

Thanks!
