Wow! That's some bold thinking! The idea is to win both, and you'll have two free entries. One in 2009, and one in 2010.

And Yes, if the team who wins Roc City Rib Fest is already a paid KCBS competitor at Boston Hills BBQ Fest, we will return the KCBS portion of the entry.

Update: The Gov's proclamation is in! And we have 19 teams signed up so we will be a State Champ. :-D

Also we will have access to a bath house on site for Saturday and Sunday for showers and such.

Thanks!

Crowd should be great, we are having a great response locally, and we are just about to ink a radio deal. Should bring the masses out.

I was going to see if there were any local culinary schools up there, so I could post a job for anyone that would be interested in earning a few bucks helping me vend at your event. I like to hire local chef prospects and let them earn some money while they are in school. Le me know if there any local culinary schools up there. thanks
