Why this date? You're going up against the MIS race in MI and that will be a big draw this year.

It's also a big vending weekend for me so I'm still trying to figure out how to do the MIS race.

Not sure why the date change. Last year it was the first weekend in June.
I'll contact the organizer and find out why it moved and how attached they are to that date.

We've got local scheduling conflicts that required us to move the date this year. Next year(2011) we'll see what we can do, but in a small town, the spaces big enough to hold an event like this are in short supply and since we are a fairly new event, we had to take what we could get.

In any event, we'll have a good time!!
Hope to see some of you folks there.

Thanks, would love to do this contest so my family in Chillicothe could come. Have to wait and see if a local (30 minutes away) is still on. Any chance the contest will get a proclamation?

Was at this comp last year. Great event!! And the people were even better. Had a wheel bearing burn up on the smoker just as we got to Marietta. Cooked all night on a smoker on jacks!! :biggrin: A couple of the local guys helped us out and fixed the trailer. We plan on going to this event for as long as they hold it. Nice little town and worth a visit.

Are you planning on getting the governors proclamation designating the contest as a state championship? Will there be KCBS sanctioning and Certified Judges? All of the above will help greatly of achieving your goal of 25-30 teams. Best of luck with the contest.

I may be there this year. I've got enough converts for a real team (instead of me doing the whole thing)

The event is KCBS sanctioned and will have certified judges.
The proclamation is something we are still working on. Word has it that the Governor doesn't do that, it needs to be done by the legislature. Struck out with one lawmaker last year, but we've learned a lot and have another year under our belts, so we're still shooting for the proc.

RV.. hope to see you back this year and hope your axle handles the trip a little better this time.

Rok, check with Jim Ferguson (Rolling Smoke). He can point you in the right direction on getting a proclamation for the contest. Without it, I'm afraid you won't get the teams required to be a qualifier (25 teams).

I'm waiting to hear back from the organizer. Last year it was $4000, but I don't recall if they had decided on what this year's would be. I'll post it as soon as I hear back.

I just heard back from the organizer.
He couldn't give me an exact number, but what he did say was:
"If you needed to communicate something right away I would be comfortable saying we will substantially increase the prize money."

Last year the prize pool was $4000. I can say that with the sponsors we are looking at lining up, we are shooting for the $8-10,000 ballpark.
That number is totally up in the air right now, but it's what we're shooting for.

We are still working with the Royal and the Jack to see what we can do to become a qualifier.
Hopefully we can get that worked out...and get our prize money finallized as soon as possible.

It's a catch-22... It's easier to raise prize money if we know we have a larger number of competitors, and it's easier to get competitors with a larger prize pool.

I will post more information as it becomes available, and keep an eye on the website I posted at the begining of the thread.

The official prize money has been posted.
$10,000 up for grabs.
Hopefully that will sway a few of you to make the trip.

We are still working on the State Championship.
I was working with a local legislator last week on verbage and a connection at the statehouse level. They were very interested in helping us get this done.

Or, we just get 50 teams down in the square, then we dont have to do a "state proclimation" and it would be the largest contest in Ohio.....I am glad that the Colony Theater came up with the prize money....that is a hellova investment....and appreciate that they have invested, not only in the contest, but, downtown Marietta as a whole.

I will send you a couple examples of State Proclamations.....which will guarantee at least 25 to make it a qualifier....regardless of a race weekend or not...I have been working with getting the information out to teams from IN, KY, WV, VA, and NC....so there should be a great representation at the contest......

Thanks again for all the help that you guys have given Hunt....hopefully this will be a long term event....and more into Ohio.....

Jambo likes rain, bring it on.....Eddy, lets see, rain, snow, blistering heat....all the same outcome.....it just depends on which one Dan wants to cook on.....heck, so many to do before then...but, with the ability to arrive on Thursday after 5, and stay over until Sunday it will be a great time...

Laughing, yeah, I busted his chops on that one pretty good too....but, he will probably be on Jambo duty there...just because I get to take it on the road so much more....you know, that whole, stay at home, cater an event for 15,000, compared to head out on the road and do a contest thing that he has going.........

hey is there a cap on how many teams you are going to have in it?

roksmith
03-09-2010, 11:34 AM
Yup, Due to space constraints, we're limiting it to 50 teams.
The first 35 teams will get spots in the main competition section.
Beyond that, we have room for the other 15 around the outskirts of the area.
Should team 51 want to get in, we'll see what we can do, but only the first 50 are guaranteed entry.

today I checked and it was still at 9, but, I think that there will be a few teams from the NE and a few from KY and IN....I think that it will fill fast once the proclamation is back and signed...any word on that yet?

If we don't have 50 teams in the next 7 days, let me know and for a nominal fee I will get this sanctioned by the Governor. My entry fee or placement to turn-ins or both should suffice.

How many teams are entered as of now? How do these BBQ competitions work again?
