his is an announcement for an event in the Western New York area: The Cross Border Blues, Brews, and Que contest, to be held in Wilson, NY, over Father's Day weekend, Friday June 18 to Sunday June 19, 2010. The contest will be held at the Calvin E. Kreuger Park, just east of the intersection of Lake St. and Ontario St. in the beautiful Village of Wilson, which is situated on the Lake Ontario shoreline, approximately 40 minutes north of Buffalo, about an hour west of Rochester, and approximately 30 minutes northeast of Niagara Falls. It's a pretty easy drive from anywhere in Western New York or Southern Ontario.

The bbq portion of the contest consists of a pro competition on Saturday, with a Junior/Senior grilling competition and a fruit pie competition on Sunday. The bbq competition is unsanctioned, but our goal is to make the Saturday competition run as much like a sanctioned contest as possible. Our rules are closest in spirit to KCBS, but with a few differences (for example, no garnish).

The schedule is still being finalized, but it will be pretty much like you would expect. Check-in and meat inspection on Friday from 12:00 until 5:00, with a cooks' meeting at 6:00. On Saturday, chicken turn-in will be at noon, and then ribs, pork, and brisket at half-hour intervals.

On Sunday, in the spirit of Father's Day, there will be a Junior-Senior grilling contest. Teams must consist of one Junior (16 and under) and one Senior (over 16), and they will choose two items to grill from among: hamburgers, hot dogs, sausage, and wings.

Because the BBQ contest is being held in conjunction with both a blues contest and a brewing contest, there will be plenty of good music and good beer all weekend long.

Rules for all the events can be found here: http://www.crossborderbbq.com/ (http://www.crossborderbbq.com/)

Come spend your Father's Day with us!
