View Full Version : Dubuque 2009?

I don't see a listing on the KCBS site for the Throwdown on the River in Dubuque, IA for 2009. Does anyone know if this comp is being held this year?

Last I talked with Steve he said it was going... It was the Sat/Sun for Labor Day weekend the first 2 years... So my guess is those dates.

Excellent! Thanks. I had a great time in 08 and would love to do this one again. Plus, it's close to home.

Sorry to say this contest has been cancelled....:frown:


With deepest regret, I am sorry to say that the Throwdown will not take place in 2010.

Mr. Geisz,

We are putting together our bbq contest schedule for 2010 and would love to come to Dubuque on Labor Day weekend. Is the contest back up and running this year? Thanks!

Telling ya, I wish Waterloo and LaPorte would move their events to these dates.

Then they would conflict with Milwaukee. Not an issue for you, but for the IL and Wi teams that would be a problem.

Heck no. Then they would conflict with Mesquite, NV.... :eek:

I think it's Great Bend has a double header that weekend Bob. I wonder if they cancelled after seeing all the BBQ guys
in swimwear?

Speaking of that, I noticed the other day someone stuffed a basketball in my belly.
