We'll see you there Todd, but I sure hope they get more teams. I didn't realize they might be short of 25 when I sent in our entry.

Chris said was calling teams yesterday. He had a lot of interest, but only five applications as of yesterday. I think he's going to get his 25, but people need to get their apps in.

This is how a lot of contests have gone this year. Teams have waited until the last minute.

They don't have any links on the website for the contest. Anyone have them?

You just have to call Chris. There isn't a contest site that I'm aware of. If you need an application, I can send one.

I'm going to be there solo. I talked to Chris Monday but I'm waiting on a catering check this weekend so I'm just paying when I get there. Sending the entry form this week. Hope he gets 25 teams as well... he's gonna take a hit on payouts sice he already announced a total purse.

anyone know what the payout for GC and RGC and categories are? Not that it really matters, just wondering.

Not sure but must be pretty good. I think they're advertising a $6000 purse. Probably close to the typical here... $1500 grand and $750 reserve with category winners around $150.

Hopefully the rain will be gone by Friday morning but I think it's supposed to be windy with possible snot flurries. :shock: Glad I have a Spicewine! :wink:

I swung by this morning. Basically, I was stalking Todd so I could snag a bottle of Bovine Bold. We had a good conversation. I wish I'd have printed this thread out so I could have tracked more brethren down.

We had a great time, wish we could have gotten around to see some of you guys. We had a time keeping the smoker at the right temp with the COLD temps. Maybe next time we can catch up to you guys.

I understand that, if it wasn't for my wife I would have probably never finished on time. I noticed that you list a couple of FEC 100's on your signature. Do you like the FEC 100? I have been thinking about getting one, but don't know that much about them.

Didn't do real well this weekend other than a third in ribs. (Don't know what's going on there! Used to be ribs cost us big time and now it seems we're scoring in ribs more often than anything else). Came in 16th overall. Since I'm used to her being there, I sure don't do well without my wife around.

Chris, sorry I didn't get over to meet you this weekend... my wife didn't get there til around 7pm Friday had to take off at 5am for a Girl Scout event on Saturday. I was pretty danged busy! I'm not used to doing all that myself.

Same here, wished I could have gotten around to say hi to all. Not used to that much cold air. It was frosty early saturday morning.
