I heard slightly earlier this morning through the grapevine (my mom who is from Waucoma) but no reason why. Then I got this from following Anne:

To Whom It May Concern:

The 11th annual pig stampede as been canceled for July 31st –August 1st, 2009. Thank you to all the teams, judges and friends that have been a part of our contest for the past 10 years. Your friendship and laughs will be missed. We appreciate your past support of our event and donations to Our Children’s Homestead. We look forward to seeing you on the circuit. Gary & Ruth Lynch and Kevin and Christy Bouska

We need to find a replacement Q:
Our options in IA are only Mason City or Nevada.

Well, I guess I will replace that with the LaPlatte, NE contest in August.

Iowa has the following sanctioned contest left:

1. Waterlook
2. LaPorte City
3. Mason City
4. Nevada

And Mitchellville (non sanctioned) on September 13th left.

The River City Roundup contest in Omaha is a great one to consider also. It is held in early September I believe. Tom and Char do a great job!

You're right Pat. Excellent contest and great location. I think it is the last weekend of September.

What is happening in Iowa, we have lost so many contest this year? I would like to know if they are just cancelling for this year or if this is the end of it all together. From the letter Chris says that they are cancelling this year but does not say anything about see you next year. Maybe I am just reading to much into this.

That sucks! Chris told me in an e-mail that they were having issues with the location. I've never been there so I don't know what the location is like.

Now I have an open weekend to fill. It looks like Jasper, IN is the closest to us at 316 miles! I have to think about that.

If I golfed I would do that. I gave up golf years ago. There was one particular hole on my favorite course that drove me nuts! I could never figure it out. Finally, after hitting that damned windmill blade for the 1000th time I just pitched my putter and went home. :rolleyes: :biggrin: :cool:

Oh... You assumed we actually golfed... Nah, we get beers from the Bud girls and drive around in our carts for 5 hours... :biggrin:

We have them to assist with anyone that needs help putting....

I like to joke, but in reality Ron, we have our focus on the end prize. Raising money for cancer research. If golf happens on the same day, great. But my goal is to not give out golfing achievment awards for the best golfers and instead just pick winners out of a hat... Who cares if a team finishes 10 under par. I'd rather have folks have fun. Try and raise some cash and remember those that we have lost from this dreaded disease. Cause I know for sure, that I do not spend any of my free time golfing anymore!!!! :roll:

Would like to, but not sure what kind of money we could raise for something like that. I would rather have it at the campground, but the festival organizers want to keep everything in town. Maybe we could do one out at the campground at a later date.

Too bad it cancelled. I know the campground was for sale maybe that had something to do with it?

Lynch could have bought that park. I'd be a good investment for them and us.:biggrin:

Lets buy it Turk and turn it into a nudist camp or won of those swinger club things. Maybe have a bbq contest and give away a 1978 Honda 70 mini bike with no title for grand prize and have dirty movies on Q's trailer. Thats the ticket

Sounds like a plan, I may have to be a silent partner but it does sound like a good investment! Maybe even a new extreme sport - Nude BBQ competition.

Hold your horses ... I have a feeling we're going to hear some new news about this tomorrow.

Like news that its back on? I've got my application for the replacement competition ready to go in the mail...should I sit on that for a couple of days?

don't put it in the mail tonight - the source that told me it was canceled (a few hours before Anne released it) informed me that the Lynch's have heard from a lot of people stating their disappointment and word of reconsideration is a possibility.

We will do DeForest WI the following weekend if this one is off. Waucoma is a heck of a lot closer :lol:

Well, Bobby it is tomorrow, had you heard anything. Iowa BBQ contests would not be the same without this one.

Honestly, I was really hoping something would have been officially announced by now. I would think my source is very knowledgeable on this situation, but I've yet to hear anything more that would make me plan on heading to Waucoma on July 31.

I hope they are not dragging their feet on this as many teams (including us) are looking for replacement competitions. Yet, I feel it's in their best interest to not skip a year with such short notice - sure doesn't help the image.

I hope my post has not cost anyone a spot in another competition.

I wouldn't sweat it too much Bob. I for one appreciate the glimmer of hope you gave me to think it may still be happening. Evidently this is one of the favorite competitions for many teams for many years, and I was/am looking forward to sharing in that enjoyment/history.

Let us know if you hear anything else. Thanks!

Agreed, I would rather wait and have a shot at this one...

Sorry to get hopes up last week. The organizer emailed me back this morning to say that she is mailing checks back today. She added that they had a serious problem with the location. I'd guess that means that's that.

We're adding in Nevada IA on August 28-29 to replace this one.

Well, that is too bad. Is this it for good or are they going to work on something for next year? But will be glad to see you in Nevada.
