It's pretty hard to finalize something when you don't even know about. But thanks for asking.

seriously.............I have to have solid dates by at least the last week in January at the latest, hell 2 of our team members are required to have vacation requests in by November.

The Problem is we can't put info out until things are finalized. Not to knock Grillin on the Bay but you see what can happen if things fall through. We try to get things on our schedule as early as we can.

Might be a good opportunity to spend the week in New England. Troy, then Harpoon. With a week on the Plum Island in between. Sounds like a great way to spend a week and two weekends!

All spaces will be located on the streets of the city, the area where we will be set up has been used for movies such as The Scent of a Woman, Ironweed and The Age of Innocence. It is a very pretty downtown area.

The organizers are promising to make this as competitor friendy as Harpoon and HVRF ! The schedule will be Friday Night Load In, Saturday NEBS Grilling Contest and Sunday KCBS Contest.

that application is being superceded with the one to be posted this week, there will also be a letter sent to potential vendors in a week or two with fees, requirements etc. The purse will be close to Harpoon or better, it will be locked in by 5/1. Stay Tuned .

Lots of details still being worked out, but Black Angus will be supplying all the brisket for the KCBS contest as well as a "beef cut to be determined" for grilling . . . lining up lots of good music, PR, family fun area (for Carmen and the Cold Cuts) and serious prize money and sponsors coming in. Stay tuned.

FYI, looks like load in will be Friday or very early (till 8 a.m.) Saturday due to the city closing the streets off.

Looks like a great comp, Eric! Can't wait. How many teams so far?

This seems like its getting pretty serious. They moved to a bigger site to accommodate more teams (I guess that's what happens when then Mayor decides to compete). I live in NJ and will try to make it through. I'd love to meet some of the local Brethren...check the link

I talked with someone who is helping out with this contest. She said we would be able to access our site until Saturday before 2:00 PM. I know there was some talk about not having access after 5:00 PM on Friday! That doesn't work for most of us. But they moved the venue from Front Street to Riverside Park, so that issue was resolved.
The comp is about two weeks away and I think you can still sign up if you want. Correct me if I'm wrong, Eric.
Any team list?
