Slabs are in. Letting everyone know....Kent with some help from his friends will be providing eggs and bacon for breakfast Saturday morning. Everyone needs to bring a breakfast item for a potluck. Cheesy taters, whatever....just bring a half pan full of something good!

It's not going to work out for us to be there this year, wish it was. We had a great time last year, even though it was windy and 13 degrees on Saturday morning,,,,,,,You all have fun! and if it gets that cold this year,,be sure to keep the lids on your coolers closed so your stuff don't freeze,,,,,,,,,,

Talked to Kent yesterday evening, he said it looks like there may be 60 teams for the Winter Q. The more the merrier!

Weather report

Today: Some clouds this morning will give way to generally sunny skies for the afternoon. High 46F. Winds NW at 5 to 10 mph.

Tonight: Partly cloudy skies. Low 28F. Winds SSW at 5 to 10 mph.

Tomorrow: Mostly cloudy skies. High 53F. Winds WNW at 10 to 15 mph.

Tomorrow night: Rain and snow showers in the evening. A snow shower or two late - otherwise, mostly cloudy. Low 27F. NNW winds at 10 to 15 mph, increasing to 20 to 30 mph. Chance of precip 30%.


I don't know where the Saturday night snow showers came from, the radio didn't report it at all.

Everyone be carefull, and hope to see you there.

Kosmo's Q

Just got back from Great Bend and what an awesome contest! Kent does an amazing job along with all of the volunteers who help. I got to meet a bunch of great teams and managed to pull a 4th in chicken as well as a 6th in Pork, and around that bunch thats pretty good IMO. Great Bend in a must for those who have never been! Can wait till Labor Day weekend for the 3 in 3 contests.

KC_Bobby
02-14-2010, 05:19 PM
I've never been to this event, but saw a few pics on facebook today. Does everyone get a square inside a building to do all their work and hang out - then everyone just keeps the smokers outside?

Kosmo's Q
02-14-2010, 05:25 PM
If you want to stay inside then, like you said you get a square and cooker stays outside or you can stay outside your preference. Absolute awesome even a must for everyone!!

That's cool... he still owes the teams from his contest last July their ribbons. I have been waiting for a 2nd pork, 5th sirloin, 5th anything beef and 10th dessert for a little while now.

Jeff, I just asked Kent Monday about this, the fair board president is in control of this and he still has never got the ribbons. Also, I think the ribbons were for 1st thru 6th places, 7th thru 10th just had money. The ribbons for Winter Q didn't come in till Friday before the contest. I will try to give him a few gentle nudges to get this taken care of. Kent busts his butt to make his contests the best he can, but he doesn't get much support from the rest of the fair board. This is part of the reason that the 2010 contest is Labor Day weekend, the fair board won't have to take care of exhibits, animals, and whatnot--just the contest.
