I have inside connections... :-D

I am in, and already have my spot reserved.... I put in my request last year right after it was over.... :eek: I made the final arrangements abt a month and a half ago, with my spot request.... I told them this NC boy needed some shade from that FL sun... it will be HOT for me, as we have already had the heat on up here...... it is so nice to have some connections some times. BTW, I got a phone call earlier, and more have signed up.... there will be more than what was there last year.....

BTW, I will have a private stash of Franklin's magic mojo coffee.... :mrgreen:

We will be there for sure. How was this contest last year? I think we need to get in on that good spot action!

I hear it was a great 1st time event. I didn't make it as I was in a class until Friday afternoon of the event.... otherwise I would have been there.

All you need is an inside connection, and you can request a good spot... :rolleyes:

Rub was at Franklin, NC back in Aug. and I got to meet him for the 1st time. He answered a lot of my questions with no problem and was great to get to know. Looking forward to trying and putting some whooping on him .... :rolleyes: :eek: or at least try.....

Thanks for the info. I really do appreciate it. I hope to meet some fellow Brethren out at the contest. I sure hope the heat is gone by then. I dont know if I can handle feels like temp of 115 like at Bartow. Although we finally got called up, so maybe it worked out.

HEAT.... I will burn up....... the average temp for Bartow for Nov. 13 & 14 is: low 60 and high of 80, :eek: we have an average low of 38 and a high of 63.... now you know why I requested some shade :rolleyes:

And yes, I will have some summer time clothes to change into when I get a little bit more to the south.... The long sleeve shirts and jackets will probably be left hanging in the trailer....

See ya all there...

I'll be stopping by but it's the weekend we're doing my son's birthday so I couldn't really plan on doing this one or I would (Class of 88 BHS).

Bill I've got an Easy up type unit if you want to use it. Call me when you get into town. I'm just down the road and already have the beer cooling.

Inside connection says that there has been like 5 teams sign up in the last few days... up to abt 42 or 43 teams now....

Now if that tropical storm will just stay away. I hope my weather man here is way wrong. He is saying that it is likely to be in the FL area later in the week, Wed. Thurs, with winds likely to be abt 60 mph...... I sure hope he is wrong... my offsets do not cook well with lots of wind...

eenie, menee, minee, mo, which way is she going to go......

So far I do not like the direction that most of the forecasters are predicting for Ida to go over the next couple of days. I plan on finishing packing tomorrow after work, and hit the road by 6pm, travel to maybe 11pmish and get a room for the night, then head on in to my brothers on Wednesday. At the last forecast that I saw, we should intersect with Ida somewhere in GA on Wednesday....... One has to really love doing this here BBQ comp stuff to put up with conditions like that... :eek: :biggrin: :rolleyes: or totally out of his head.... :confused:

Most recent forecast down here looks pretty much perfect for the upcoming weekend. 81 as a high, partly cloudy and 8mph winds. That sure works for me.

That is pretty warm for us.... it has been upper 50's 60's for highs for the last few weeks now, so we will be pretty hot.... but we will take it... see ya all in a couple of days.

We got into town abt 3:30pm today... Man this weather is great. This is more like it, now if it will just stay like this. I had on a t-shirt and short pants and loving it. We took a trip to Bartow while ago and met Dana and a few of the others and picked out my "special" spot... :biggrin: The thermometer in the truck showed 58 degrees.... :-P

See ya all tomorrow. Come on by and say hi.

Good luck to you Bill! Crank up that magic mojo pot. You were right, mopping some of your magic mojo on our ribs landed us on stage in 1st place at Franklin NC ... gotta get more of that stuff from ya. We brought a pot to hog happenin' in Shelby but it obviously does not possess the same magic as your mojo ... lacked some judge love in Shelby.

Thanks man, it worked.... :biggrin:

Sorry the magic mojo didn't work for you at Shelby... maybe it is the pot that it is brewed in and not the ground coffee itself... :confused:

Rub sure liked it in Bartow... another grand for him.... I think I am going to have to rethink this here mojo offerings some more....

Hope to see ya again on the circuit next year...
