Congrats, Mista! I wonder if that glowing review of your brisket on that world famous blog made the difference....:rolleyes:

Somehow, I doubt it.....

Inside joke, y'all.....sorry.....:oops:

Congrats Big Mista. Who ended up with the top job out there? Maybe Thom will continue on. How many terms can you serve, or is it a dictatorship?

Awww shucks guys...*blush*...thanks a bunch! Sure is great to start the day with all of this love!

I was excited just to be elected to the board. This is a special honor and I will do my best to help the organization grow.

Thom chose not to run for the board this year, deciding instead to concentrate on bringing more contests to Cali thru his promotions company. He is still the lead moderator at the cbbqa.org website and I'm sure we will be consulting him on many matters.

Here are the 2008 board of directors:

Brent Walton - QN4U - President
Gene Goyochea - Out of this world BBQ - Executive V.P.
Bill Keyes - Tropical Heat - Treasurer & Secretary
Neil Strawder - Four Q BBQ - Southern California V.P.
Larry Hill - BLQUE Cutting Edge Q'n - Central California V.P.
Darry Smith - Smitty's Smoke Patrol - Northern California V.P,
Randy Gille - Burbank Bad Boys - Sergeant-At-Arms

Congratulations Neil. Does this mean you just get to attend the comps and taste as an unofficial judge? Or was this way to make it more fair for others to compete with you out of the circuit?

Couldn't do it without you! I may be the head cook but Sylvie is the one who keeps us all in line.

Seems like a natural choice to me...:biggrin:, Congrats...WTG! and I'm sure you'll do a good job!:mrgreen:

Natural? I was amazed that I was elected to the board! Didn't know that many people even knew who I was. I will do my best to serve competently.

Bill

I think that was my campaign platform. "More Parties in '08"!

I'll be leaning on you a lot Bill. It's your second year on the board so you have a lot more experience. Please keep me from saying too many stupid things.

Excellent choice! Just think when I want to biaitch about something I have your cell:twisted::biggrin:

Like you needed me to be elected for that.:roll::twisted:

Our team will be out there competing like we always do. I will just be doing more recruiting while I am there.
