I would guess most of the teams that are going to compete in Upper Marlboro were competing this wekend. There were competitions in Chesapeake and Danville Va.

We would love to make Upper Marlboro but the Department has other plans for us.

Not competing but tried to see if they need any judges and have e-mailed them 3 times with no response. Must not.

Try again,. I e-mailed and got a response back in a few hours. And they do need judges.

Just confirmed that I'll be there. Does anyone have any idea much prize money they have for this contest? They don't have a website and I can't find that information anywhere.

I hear 47 teams - one week to go could hit 50.

I also heard about 4K in prize money. Seems like a big turn out for such little money but I wouldn't miss it - it's only about 30 minutes away.

I was thinking the same thing, I don't recall the proceeds assisting any charity.... so I wonder where all the money is going.

In the past, any proceeds went to support the programs at the county rec center that sponsors the events. I was hoping the prize pool would be a bit higher this year. Last year, the event got A LOT of exposure at the local level which I thought would help translate into finding sponsors which has been problematic for this competition and why the prize pool is subpar.
The reason it draws teams is because it's a state championship which makes it a qualifier for the Jack, AR, etc.

What a good time we had. EVEN IN THE RAIN! One thing about fighting fires is they happen in all kind of weather. So I think we are used to that kind of crap. We are kind of disappointed with our finish. Not sure why, but hope we can step it up a few notches in DC in 2 weeks.

Gald to meet some new and visit with some old. Hell we missed the "LUCKY SHOT" Sunday morning. Maybe that's what happen.

Brett get job flying solo. Congrats to 3 EYZ, The Guru, and The Pigs!

It was great seeing everyone and the contest was fun overall..... except for the late-night tsunami that turned the field into a series of small islands.....
We'll probably be back next year (especially if they get a bigger prize pool)

Congrats to everyone who walked!

Yes when I got there Sunday to judge I could see the mud from the rain. I did think about you all cooking when the rain came through. I was at the Nissan Pavillian watching George Strait live in concert. The BBQ and the concert made for a good weekend. It was my first time judging and I did so mainly to try to see what all goes on in the big tent, and to taste a little of what I have been competing against :mrgreen:
