I just heard from Marsha regarding Zoo-B-Que in Racine, and that one is not confirmed yet. Not cancelled, just not booked.

I think you're behind the cancellations. You know, can't lose the crown if they don't run. You're trying to build your "Reigning Champion" list.

it is sorta nice not losing that "Reigning Champ" title... So I have that going for my resume... Which is nice... 8-)

Heck, I just realized... I am the official Pork Champ of Racine County too. So I have that crown too!!!! Better luck next time Pat... :twisted:

This contest was where i popped my comp cherry two years ago so I would have liked to see it stay. The person that is replacing Jenny will be no help to getting the comp back so hopefully she is replaced soon. Hopefully racine still happens.

You guys need to relax there is a lot of time to lock in the site. I think your getting ahead of yourselves, you will be surprised it will happen. Good things happen to those who wait. Relax.

I'm not worried Scotty, as I will find another. But for some who only do 2-4 contests a year. Especially in Wisconsin, as 1 had gone down, another is in serious life support, one has been taken over by a new person and the old person is questioning it. I can see why some of these guys are freaking. It might mean they have to drive more that 90 minutes from home to compete.....

OK, so I have a question....call it newbie trivia

Pat and us both had a 161.2856 in pork in Racine. How do they determine who was 2nd, and who was third?

Not complaining, we were thrilled, in fact, too thrilled to even notice it was a tie! Just curious if anyone knows how that was decided:icon_blush:

Sucks about Menomenee. Unfortunately, I don't think we'll be cooking too much this year either....economy seems to be kicking us all in the teeth. We're hoping to do Westmont, and we'll see where it goes from there

I'm not 'Freaking'... Just trying to get our team schedule in order... One of my guys does a fair amount of traveling, and we all need to think about vacations...

To be honest, I haven't been able to do the Zoo-B-Q because it always fell on a weekend I was committed to be out of town so if the weekend of the 25th is correct, all the better...

Also, if they aren't going to have it at the zoo, can they really still call it the 'Zoo-B-Q'???

Dann, they break ties as follows:

Using the 5 scores, they first add up the taste scores only and see if that breaks the tie. Then they do that with tenderness and appearance until the tie is broken.

If that doesn't work, they add in the 6th score that was originally discarded.

If that doesn't work, they have a computer generated coin toss.

Thanks Pat! (and RON) I think I'd read that somewhere....just the first time I noticed we'd tied.

Anyone know if there's some reason Marsha wouldn't be able to use the zoo again? We actually really liked that venue!

Marsha didn't go into specifics, just said that the zoo was very difficult to work with. I thought it was the best venue I've been to and was looking forward to my kids coming up this year.

It's one of the more unique venues and that's why I've been looking forward to it....
