Funny, I almost posted the same thing when I first read this. While not the same weekend, it's prior to the Memorial holiday weekend annual summer gas hike.

I heard this news last weekend-what a bummer!
Why do the closest ones have to go away?

Any ideas why? My guess is they lost a sponsor or two and it became cost prohibitive.

Brew-B-Que in Independence cancelled because they never made a profit for their charity. Mostly due to not having any Fri. night money makers.
Personally this one will be missed as it was the first one we cooked.

Yeah, Ankeny never really did anything to generate any extra money. The bands and entertainment were provided by summerfest. They basically only had the entry fees and some raffle money. Some people didn't even know the BBQ was going on.

Bummed! :sad:

Not sure we are going to do any with the economy, but it was going to be hard no to do this one. It's about 1/2 mile from my house. Had a real good time the last couple years and met some really nice people there. Guess now we'll be looking at Nevada or State Center. I guess I got spoiled the last couple of years with it being so close. Hopefully they'll be back next year.

Well, they are both good contest. Nevada is moving to the campround this year so the location should be better. Only thing in State Center I didn't like was the people expecting you to provide them samples. And when I say expecting I mean almost grabbing it of the smoker.

I know what you mean. We cooked there in 2006 and it was our first contest. Trains were a pain, but Daryl put on a good contest. We had people walking through our spot and setting their stuff down on our tables. I had to ask a few people to stop putting their drinks on the hood of my truck. The guy next to me (Smokey Joel I believe) gave me some CAUTION tape and that helped a little.

That was also the first contest where we met BBQ Mayor and Shotgun!

My first contest was there in 2007. Learned a ton from Rob at Munchin Hogs at the Hilton.

Trains and BBQ contest somehow go hand it hand it seems.

I was at the last Iowa BBQ meeting and Marshalltown is still a go without question.

Did you sign up to be an IBS member? If you are doing four contes in the state, you should if you have not already so you can be entered for team of the year. You have to be in before 5/1.

So you have to register for four contests before 5/1, or be an IBS member?

This past weekend I attended the KCBS certified judging class in Des Moines and Lew Miller was there. He is the host of the Iowa State Barbque Championship and said that they just posted (last friday) the registration forms for the 2009 contest. He was extremely excited about it and was recruiting from the judges from the 70 new ones that were there. In no way did I get the feeling that they were struggling.

He also mentioned that they were working with two additional communities in Iowa to get two more KCBS sanctioned events, I don't know if they woudl be State Championships or not, but I found that to be good news especially in light of the Ankeny DU cancellation.

You have to be a member of the Iowa BBQ Society by 5/1.

It sounds like Mitchellville is trying for sanctioning on 9/13. I have never organized a contest, but I think it has to be approved by KCBS 90 days prior to the date.

Yeah I'm a card carring member...I really need to find the time to go to the meetings...We helped out at the judging class so I feel a little better!
I listed my schedule on my blog(shameless plug mod) Spanky and the meat mafia.blogspot.com
The plan is to do about 6-7 iowa contests, unless I run out of money or get too busy working.

My schedule is on my blog as well. Looking to pick up two more contest. Maybe Min in May and probably River City Roundup in NE.

I think the comp level is going to be sky high in Iowa. Lots of great teams week end week out.

I know that Nevada is going to happen, but was approached by a member of the Lincolnway Days committee to discuss the area. I told them that I'm not the organizer of this and they know, but want a competitors advice on the location of the event. The campground in question is the 4H grounds, which is used by the carneys. We will see might be in the same spot.
