Don't bet on it Ted. At the winter Sizzler last year there wasn't enough AC to run our heater in the trailer and I didn't bring a generator. I'm not sure those units put out enough heat anyway for temps in the teens !

actually, it was the jumbo, industrial-type heater that they use to warm up job sites... the only problem was that when we turned it down to the lowest it could go, our eyes were a little bit stingy from the unburned fuel.... :roll: heheh.

Come on guys, it's going to be March. Your acting like your from Florida. You all should be acclimated fully by then and besides no one in this thread has a lack of "personal insulation" (myself included). :biggrin: The only bad thing is there is a lack of sun in that little valley.

I am glad though we did a practice cook all of last weekend so we should be able to handle everything from 20 degrees sleet, snow and wind to 45 and sun and wind. Perfect March weather it was.

ATTENTION ALL 2008 Freeze Your Butt Off Teams ! Due to an unexpected decision by the Jiminy Peak Ski Area to reschedule the date, the contest has been moved to the MAYNARD ROD & GUN CLUB in Maynard MA.

We were informed on Thursday Night that due to a strong ski season and abundance of snow that the ski area would not be able to provide a location suitable to host the cooking teams and provide the basic services such as power and water and access to the judging area. After talking with a few people and securing the new site, the decision was made to move the contest to the Maynard Rod & Gun Club, the contest will be on blacktop with access to water, power, toilets and the bar will be open both days !

I am sorry for the late notice, however the decision by the host this close to the contest was unexepected and could not be changed.. Please go to the website www.pigmakerproductions.com (http://www.pigmakerproductions.com) for more details and info.

Now, let us remember the sauna that was our site... that heater was 250,000 BTU's.

We won't be bringing that this time. It gave off a tad too much fumes by trying to keep it at the lowest setting...

BUT, what we will be bringing is our SNOWBLOWER!!

see ya then!

We got around 2-4 inches of snow last night and it's still coming down. Looks like it might be ending around 12:00. The roads are looking pretty good but drive safe guys! I hear the cooks meeting is around 7:00 pm so you guys have plenty of time to get here safely!!! Don't rush it!
If anyone needs something PM me. I'll be here till about 4:00, then we're heading to Maynard. Can't wait to paaaahdy!!!!

The turn ins are today. I'll post them as soon as I get them.

We had a blast last night! Kris and I went down to visit and hang out for the night. Everyone made something for a great potluck dinner. It was in the low 20's but everyone stayed warm with a few fire pits and plenty of good whiskey!

We had a comp out here in AZ this pass weekend. I had to get the Sweats and pull over on, as it dropped down to 63 when the sun went down. BRRRRR :lol:

I didn't hear any snoring when I finally went down at 4... plus, it didn't wake the kids up so it couldn't have been that bad...

And you did not hear anysnoring cause it was you doing the snoring. You and Nancee, it certainly didn't come from The Anchormen's area.

To all of the teams and judges who particpated in the 1st annual Freeze Your Butt Off contest. In retrospect, moving the contest actually made for a better time and for 99% of the people, a closer location ! Also thank you to the Maynard Rod & Gun who were the best hosts anyone could ask for. Watch for the video to be released nationwide soon !
