Part of comp cooking is learning how to lose. A champion gets up, dusts himself off and wants to kick ass again. After you get your results, (and you don't like them) forget about them, as tomorrow is a new day. Just like golf after hitting a bad shot. Let's face it Coz, we can't win every contest. You had early success, losing is a huge part of it, even for Rod.

I agree we competed in 5 comps getting calls everytime then the First Big Pig Gig we got zilch, It was a tough one to take, the kids took it real hard. We havent competed since that one because of the restuarant we were getting going, hopefully we can get out again soon.

I also agree... The difference is that we started with low (damn near DAL) scores and moved up... It still stings but that's some of what we feed on to improve ourselves...

Guys I am fine just trying to inject a little humor. If I had thin skin I sure wouldnt try to compete in about anything. This hobby of ours is a lot easier to "want to do" then say competition coon hunting or stock car racing for sure. One thing for certain is that the vast majority doing this are a lot friendlier then some of the other competitive deals I have been in. As far as my last comp scores I wrote it off to the fact that I really was not into being there so most likely didnt get the results I should have do to headinass syndrome.

I will be there as a lone wolfpack of one. My teammate from last year will also be competing with his own team.

While I don't live close, I've been known to have an extra hub cap if needed...

If my other side family reunion wasn't this weekend, you all would have an extra team member. Heavily marinated of course.

Ramona is doing this one under her team and is going to be using my BGE... I'm sure that she wouldn't mind some one look over her shoulder...

How many teams are signed up for this event?

Thanks Ron!

I am Ron's friend from the coffee world.

That may be a tough weekend for me as it is my 28th anniversary of marriage to my darling wife who is going along with this potential purchase (so far). I didn't make it 28 years by finding something else to do on my anniversary. We are spending that time at our cabin north of Eau Claire. So there is a (small) chance of us driving home that way. What time do things happen?

I'm not sure what her timing is going to me (she won't tell me:laugh::drama::laugh::drama::laugh:). My guess is that we'll be there mid-morning and she'll start late in the evening and be cooking through the next morning.

Remember that things get a bit nuts after say 9:30 the morning of turn-in.

I'll be there as Creosote Calamity. Splitting off from OtisT just because the fees were so cheap and a little extra competition never hurt anyone. First time as a head cook and really looking forward to it.... just hoping I don't place 26th.

If the campground is shaded nice, sheltered from the wind and a little damp from recent rains it ma be a good idea to pack bug spray--kinda thick in my yard this morning!

Congrats to all that walked and job well done by Animal and Dive. How exciting to see the first timers get calls!! It was also exciting watching the experienced guys helping out the newbies. It was a totally different enviroment than any other competition and FUN was had by all. People had their kids and grandkids there, that could swim, fish and play mini golf. Each site had it's own electric and water. We had time to visit and share and just enjoy being in BBQ. Saturday, the people that had places at the campground came around and asked questions and everyone was friendly and sharing. Hope we see more folks out there next year....God Bless You Anita

P.S. The building that had awards, had a sign that said "No Animals allowed in building" so Animal missed some awards but ran in real quick for the GC.

Rich, thanks.Jerry is always a pleasure to visit with.I wish we had finished a tad better to make the trip a little better for him and Barb but QU and Dive were in the take no prisoner mode :redface: I think this was one of the more enjoyable comps I have had. We had great company and the weather held up for us.
