Don't think that would be so feasible as they try to keep all returning teams in the same spots as the previous year.

I'm always in for a Brethren row, but I kinda like my spot at NH as it's close to the judges tent and the bathroom

Last year I was on the waiting list and got a call in mid July that there was an opening. But I didnt apply until late (4/11) and was possibly on the list that was created after they filled up the first time.

My nephew won the Beef Catagory for 14 to 17 year olds at New Holland two years ago with his steak pin wheels when he was 15 years old. They have to have their own set up completely separate from yours no matter what the age. You are able to start and help with the fire and cutting with a knife but thats it. My nephew had is own canopy, grill, prep table, knives, seasonings, weber kettle, and 3 tub sanitary wash station to use. They do not allow your youngster to cook at your site. They also have monitors to make sure parents do not help too much.

But on the other hand, just glad to be in, and no rotissere smoker this year, so it won't matter..lol

Ask for an upgraded (better) spot. Obviously, some of the teams didn't return, so maybe they can tell you what spots are available for returning teams to upgrade to. Doesn't hurt to ask.

Just got done talking to 2 of my team members and we are pretty much going to make, Berks, Yardley, Dover and most likely New Holland annual for us. Berks, Yardley and New Holland are all with in 2hrs of our house. Can't pass them up, and Berks is a great venue. My team was in Yardley last year and really liked it. New Holland is a new comp for all of us. Dover minus the tornado was a great time. The tornado I think brought us together. My team lost their canopys, and the damper on our smoker broke. We had a lot of teams helping us, because we were starting to pack up and they would not let us. Thanks to everyone, especially Bob from BBQGURU. That is the only name I rememeber, so thanks to anyone else.

I've decided to back out of New Holland and requested a refund.

I'll be in attendance though as a pit bitch.
We're #2 on the waiting list. Hope we make it!

If we do, look us up for a beer.

Sled be fair, you should share your bitch everyonce in a while. I think you should not be aloud to wear your lucky number 13 for New Holland. Give some new guys the advantage.
