We did a little event for our Eagles club last month. We earned $ 3460.00 for Cancer Research. The club would like to hold a BBQ event next year to raise money for Cancer Research. They would have it be a santioned event. Are there any teams that would be into an event like that in Rochester MN?
Here are some pics of the Team at the Classic Car Show.

I am always interested in doing these kind of events. It's what I stand for as a team...

Thats one other thing I wanted to bring up. The Date. Lets make it happen whenit works best for all. What are some dates we should be looking at.

As someone with a vested interest in cancer research, we would like to cook in this. If you are looking to draw Iowa teams, one open date that comes to mind is June 4th and 5th.

Hey Don,

June 4 & 5 is already in the books for Smoking in Steele in a town 20 Minutes away from us so pulling teams from that venue wouldnt be good.
We would love to see you guys at the event though.

Since it sounds as if the Qlossal won't be happening this year, :-(, perhaps that would be a good replacement for the date? If Owatonna is June 4-5 this year, the Qlossal probably would have fallen the weekend after.

Check out the www.Iabbq.org to get the 2010 schedule of KCBS sanctioned events (may not be posted yet). If you go with a weekend that does not have a comp in Iowa, I think you will draw at least double digit number teams from IA.

I think I heard that 4 Mile Fred's event (Pleasant Hill, IA right?) was going to replace Qlossal on the schedule

Oh that's right, I heard that from BusterDog last week. What about the next weekend?

My team would make the trip over from Wisconsin.

Avoid the Marshalltown-Iowa State Championship, W'Loo/LaPorte weekend (double-header) and Mason City - those three weekends would be hard to draw any Iowa teams.

Mtown - last weekend of June
W'Loo/LPC - 3rd weekend of July
Mason City - 4th weekend of July

I think Pleasant Hill and Ottumwa will also be big draws in IA this year - I think these are both in early June.

If Plesant Hill is replacing the Qlossal, then that should leave an open weekend that was Waucoma(I think they are done)

musicmanryann
10-29-2009, 02:02 PM
And I forgot about Ottumwa as well. What would I do without you Bob?

2nd weekend of July? Last weekend of May? And by Waucoma weekend Don, you are talking about the last weekend of July (30-31)?

KC_Bobby
10-29-2009, 02:06 PM
Waucoma was historically the first weekend of August. This past year was screwy because Aug 1 fell on a Sat. That weekend is open in IA.

You can count us in!

As for a date, Minnesotans are tough and we need a local April competition. It would likely be better weather than Austin Mn this year:wink:

Please excuse my ignorance, but Minnesota is a big state, could you narrow down the site a bit?

My team and I are looking for a comp up there since I have family in Rochester and St. Paul.... If the dates (and location) work out, you can count on us!

Dibs on sleeping space on the floor of Tippy's 5th wheel. If it's that early in the year I doubt I bring the Qchen up (unless we're done with the KC regional portion of the schedule for spring)

Trying to pick the date.

I was wondering if August 13th and 14th would work for you guys. If not what are some other dates?

Nothing in Iowa that weekend is there? Is their anything in IA between Pleasant Hill July 30-31 and Nevada August 27-28? If not, that sounds like a great weekend.

If thats an open date, Smokehouse 72 would be willing to help in Cancer research.

Meet with Event organizer + all city and county powers on Wed the 27th.
This weekend we hold the Cancer Telethon for 2010. Last year we raised over 700 thousand so we have a huge number to hit. Hope everyone can suport us in 2011 by doing this comp.

The Rochester Police force actually is holding the event on the 13th of Aug. We pushed for or Eagles club to be the benificiary of the comp but I am not gonna try to piss off the cops. It will be held at the fairgrounds in Rochester. Team Wine & Swine will be there. See ya there.
