I do think there is room for a bunch of contests in the NY/Long Island area.... as long as the venue is strong.

C'mon Chris.. i showed u the secret handshake.!!

anyway..

yeah, friendly venues are our problem.


Finding a private sector venue that will have us. We lucked out with 'small town' politics and the C.O.C. in sayville. As soon as you get involved with larger gov(such as state parks) or places where unions are involved, permits and greased palms become a problem and the barriers go up.

It was reported/rumored that at one contest aroud here a few years back a specal somebody with a key and a uniform wanted a $2000 "fee"(in cash)to let the ice truck INTO the venue.

The organizer decided instead to make trips with his pickup truck to the ice truck which was about a mile away, on the other side of the gates.

Yeah, so I'm sure you guys are working all the angles, but maybe private businesses would be a good option. Someone interested in promoting their business via the contest (thinking the Harpoon model). Does the Brooklyn Brewery have 50 20x20 spaces with water and electricty? :lol:

The neighborhood that the brewery is in is not exactly "cooker friendly". I approached the owner of the Blue Point Brewery out here on the Island and they have no space.

What about a larger retail chain, maybe a faimly owned furniture store or the like that has a a huge lot? Maybe a sale in conjunction with the competition or even using their lot during off business hours. Scott

We look to the private sector first.

Problem is alot of the major places are union shops and thats proved to be a problem. But have no fear.. we have more stuff on the horizon.

what about "The Brick House Brewery"? it's popular, centrally located and there is alot of space in that parking lot it's attached to. plus it could be done in conjunction with a live at five event in the summer where there are live bands and the street is closed.

Great idea! I've gone to one of the Friday night events during the summer. It sounds like this one could be possible.

the problem with the brickhouse brewery is the parking lot belongs to the village, if it were private , different story

Already approached them last year. Not friendly and not as big as you would think. They would have to keep space for customers during the event.

Have a contact there, though...

Plattduetsche Park in Franklin Square? The Biergarten would work and should be available before they open it every weekend for their own business on June 2nd. Plus it's easy to get to from on the Island and from the north and west. The south (off Island)...not so much.

That place holds great outdoor beer events, right near Bellmont raceway. Not sure how much actual space there is, though, if teams were going to set up and compete. Worth checking out.

You're thinking of the small parking lot where you park. It's huge once you pay the admission and go inside.

Indeed. They have existing stages, sound and light, lots of food vending structures, an indoor beer garden, picnic tables, and, sometimes, an Oompah Loombah band! Good call, Bernie.

What happened?As you might know i have been out of commission because of a back injury. I was putting it off hoping that i would be relieved of some pain and have my head on straight. The pain only got worse. The day it was due I went in for an unscheduled procedure for my back and missed the deadline.
