We now have a sponsor for this year.:icon_clown He is covering entry fees and $100 worth of meat for each local contest. There are about 7 local comps. That only leaves about 3-4 that aren't covered. I'm looking for someone to fill the gaps. But not bad for our first sponsor.

How does the sponsor deal work? Do you have a their banner and information for the company at your booth?

We'll have a banner for their BBQ store and have business cards since they're the main egg dealer in North TX.

Thanks! So are you cooking just on the Egg/s? Just trying to figure some of this stuff out.

Sponsors are great. We (Wyatt) have three. One gives us a 75% discount on all meat. One matches every dollar of winnings that Wyatt puts into his college fund (my employer), and the last one will pay up to $200 for every comp Boy-B-Que enters.

In return, they all have a place on the banner, and t-shirts.

Good job on the sponsor... I'm starting to push for one or two for our comps, too. I think I have one that may pony up some meat, or meat money... But it would be nice to have a couple of them.

We periodically get sponsors, but have never had a full year. Boy is it nice when we have 'em!
