Hi folks...I have a question...If a team wins a "qualifying" event in another state or country...does the "bung" count for your home state...or the state / country you won it in? Thanks! :-P

It counts for the draw in the state in which the contest was won.

HOWEVER
It could also come into play for home-state rep. JD likes to have a representative team from each state, so if the draw in a state was won by an out-of-state team, there is a subsequent draw among qualifying teams that are based in that state, to be the home-state team.

Example: in 2008 we had bung #121 for a contest won in California, and were not drawn for California.
Our home state Arizona's draw was an out-of-state team who had won a contest in Arizona.
Therefore, a subsequent draw of qualifying Arizona teams was done, and we were the Arizona state rep.

Clear as mud! :becky:



....aaaannnnd, aren't you more than halfway to not worrying about Draw Day at all? http://www.divaherself.com/funny/shiner.gif

LOL! We would absolutely LOVE an automatic...but getting enough teams for a qualifier up here is difficult at times...plus there are some really good teams hot on our heels...:boxing:

Along the same question lines...is there any preference given to winning a KCBS sanctioned event as opposed to a local sanctioning body? Or is a bung just a bung regardless of who sanctioned the contest?

We had both KCBS and IBCA contests in our 7 last year -- if it's a qualifier, it's a qualifier.

Thanks Diva...I remember reading this (below) over on Paul's site (The Pickled Pig) last year...good info. :cool:

Draw for “The Jack”


Because “The Jack” is a promotion for the Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey brand, we want to have every state that has a qualifying contest or every state that has a “Grand Champion” residing in that state to be included in our competition.

The final list of teams begins with:


(1)Grand Champions of the following competitions:
·21st Annual Jack Daniel’s World Championship Invitational Barbecue
·2008 American Royal Open Competition
·2009 Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo Barbecue
·2009 Memphis in May Championship and

(2)Teams winning a competition that is the only qualifier in a state.

Next:


(3)For the remaining states that have more than one qualifying contest, team names will go into state draws one time for every contest they have won in each state – i.e. two wins in Tennessee will get your name in the Tennessee draw two times. (State draws will be conducted randomly.)

(4)If any team is the only “Grand Champion” from its home state and it has not been selected via a state draw, that team will be invited to represent its state. Home state is determined by the address of the chief cook.

(5)If there are numerous Grand Champions from any state and none of their names have been drawn, all Grand Champions from that state will go into a draw to determine who represents their home state.

(6)After all draws are completed, remaining teams will have one last chance in our “Wild Card” draw. Each team’s name will be placed in the “wild card” draw one time and one last team will be invited.)

NOTE: As the draw progresses from state to state, additional teams may make the list by “default.” For example: If TN has seven teams in its draw, GA has three, VT has two, and CA has four, and Team A has wins in all four states and its name is pulled in the TN draw, the team whose name remains in the draw for VT would, by “default,” represent VT. Clear as mud? Feel free to give us a call if you have any questions.
