Gang... Please read the guidelines for this forum in the sticky post at the top of the forum.

In particular, please pay attention to item #1. We recently had two roll call threads going for competitions in the same city. one of those threads only mentioned the city name and not the competition name and dates. One of the moderators assumed that both threads were for the same competition and merged them into one. It turned out that they were for different competitions.

#1--Please "title" threads completely and accurately.
If we are posting about an event--include the city/state. That is how most people identify them. There are about a zillion "Pig Jams" a year! Take a moment and look to see if a thread exists for your event. Threads do not "go away" here like they do elsewhere! Your new post will bring them right back to the top again! http://dev.bbq-brethren.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_lol.gif Use the prefixes for this forum to make the title stand out and keep things organized.
Contest Announcements can be put up as soon as a contest is official.
Roll calls no sooner than 4 weeks out.

I'd like to suggest a format for threads about specific competitions to make sure that the requested information is included...

<Name_of_competition>, <Location_of_competition> - <Dates_of_competition>

Where Name_of_competition is the name that shows up in the sanctioning body's listings, Location_of_competition includes the city AND state as show in the listing, and Dates_of_competition includes the year since many of these events happen every year.

Thanks in advance!
