Yup - this is our first KCBS comp since Elks Lodge back in May - I'm feelin rusty! :heh: We just got done building out the new trailer over the weekend - sure hope it all works and holds up well under travel. We have sinks/countertops in the back of the toy hauler now and we're geared up. New cooker on the way - just waiting on it to be finished - but we'll work with my backyard cooker and a WSM until it arrives.

Looking forward to seeing you this weekend - drive safe - we'll see you there!

I know that there is a people choice contest on Friday night. Anyone who has been there before... what is an ideal number of wings to cook up that night? I have ordered 25# but I'm wondering if that will suffice.

Thanks!

Chris - looking forward to seeing y'all again. I was curious - where did you find out there's a people's choice? I didn't see it on the entry form. Looked again before posting this and still can't find anything on it.

NOAA.GOV is still calling for mid 90's this weekend - man after Glasgow last week could sure use a break in the heat!

Looking forward to this weekend!

Here is some of the info in my mail..
11. How many wings should I bring for People's Choice? We are
feeding 250 people, so roughly, 30 to 40 lbs, should be plenty.

. What time is cook's meeting? 6:00
p.m. at the Turn In location with is in the Multi-Purpose building.
Follow the crowd at 6:00 p.m.

5. GIVEN THAT THE TEAM MEETING AND PEOPLE'S CHOICE IS AT THE SAME
TIME, make sure you have an extra team-mate at your location to help
serve the public.
1. What time does the People's Choice Start? Public
will start coming around your areas around 6:00 p.m.

2. Where will we serve the wings from? From
your spot, the public will come to you.

Thanks Peter - just got the email from Aimee - people's choice is for sure then. I just got done asking Aimee if it's mandatory or optional.

vexter1
07-20-2010, 02:37 PM
Per Aimee -

"Optional…..but for you required…. :-P LOL"

So there we are - the poeple's choice is optional. Just an FYI.

Judging is not at your site. It is a blind judge event and the wings are turned in and served to the public by volunteers.

Per Aimee: Teams will bring their entries to a separate site away from their site Up by the beer garden,each team that has entered will be shown where turn-ins is. Each team will get a number ( thus blind judging ) wrist bands are pre-sold ( at Boone County fair office and at my bank ) and sold at the gatefor $10.00 a piece. The public will be told to go to the designated spot by the beer garden in front of the main grandstand. The following will be provided by us:

1. serving trays for the chicken wings
2. napkins
3. chaffing dishes to keep entries warm
4. volunteers to serve wings
5. voting tokens to the public

The following will be provided by the teams:

1. chicken wings
2. $10.00 entry fee
3. aluminum trays to carry wings to turn in station
4. A voting box just like last year
5. they must go to the Boone County Health Dept website and look at all regulations

Ok Jay.. here is the rules that I was sent awhile back directly from Aimee. It specifically states that "you can only serve people that have wristbands". "You can serve the public or they can serve themselves". "You can decorate your voting box any way you see fit."

All of these things seem different than what you are saying. Is this not the same set of rules that you were given?

PEOPLE’S CHOICE

CATEGORY: CHICKEN WINGS

ENTRY FEE: $10.00

RULES THAT APPLY:

1. This is not KCBS Sanctioned
2. You will provide your own wings
3. You will need to prepare and cook your wings on site
4. Top three places pay-out
5. Entry money is pooled together and paid out 100% to the top three teams/ thus the more that enter the more money for the top three teams!
6. Pay-Out for People’s Choice will be held at the award ceremony on Saturday!
7. Public can serve themselves or you can serve.
8. You will need to make YOUR OWN voting box for the public to put their votes in. It will need to be A BOX, no smaller than a shoe box sized box. You may decorate it any way you see fit. You will need to put a slit in the top of the box, big enough to fit a dollar sized coin in, but no bigger than that! The lid on the box must be secured with tape or glue; the lid must not come off. Boxes will NOT be returned to the teams, so make sure it is deposable in nature.
9. Please read the attached guide-lines from the Boone County Health Department. YOU MUST abide by these rules, if the Health Department inspects your site and disqualifies you for the People’s Choice, the organizer nor Boone County Fair will not reimburse your costs and you will not be able to participate in the event!!!! PLEASE READ THE GUIDELINES CAREFULLY THIS IS A MUST!!!!!
10. You will only serve those (public) that have a wrist band on their wrist, (color of band) TBD, however….if they do not have a wrist band they have not paid and cannot be served.
11. Each person that pays to eat Chicken Wings will have the ability to vote two times.

Please fill out the attached entry form WHICH IS SEPARATE FROM THE KCBS BBQ ENTRY FORM for the People’s Choice Wings Contest!!!

It has changed since you got your information. Contact Aimee if you have any questions.

Thanks Jay,

Ok... well that makes it easier on me. I was wondering how I was going to serve wings AND attend the cooks meeting at the same time.

I did contact Aimee this morning and this is what she wrote:
--------------------------------

Sorry Chris,

We ran into some things at the fairgrounds wherein we are limited in space. I apologize when I sent out the rules and entry forms I was still ready to have the public come around to each teams site to be served wings. At this time due to some unforeseen circumstances we will need to set up a designated area for people’s choice. Wherein the teams will bring their entries up to a table set up for PC only, which is located by the beer garden. I will show you that when you arrive.

I will have two volunteers at the wings table helping the public and serving 2 no more than 3 wings per person as to not run out. We will have chaffing dishes to keep your entries warm and to follow health codes. The only thing you will need to worry about as a team is preparing your wings and bring them to the PC table. We only have one chaffing dish per team so we will need to come get you or you will need to come up and check with us as to whether or not we need to more wings to keep your entry filled.

Yes you will need to prepare your own voting box. Each team will be assigned a number. The public will blind judge the wing entries.

I hope this answers all your questions and I apologize for the confusion and last minute changes. This typically does not happen, and I apologize in advance for your inconvenience. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks so much.

Aimee

The other question that I asked was in reference to the voting box and the "decoration" since it was a blind judging.. the decoration alone might give away who we are.

Here is her reply:

Yes it would definitely give away who you were. Yes they should be pretty vague in nature. I am going to bring wrapping paper with me…..so I can make each of the voting boxes identical in nature. Since I have had to change everything at the last minute I will re-wrap all the boxes myself so the teams don’t have to go out of their way to change everything up……

I appreciate your understanding. Thank you so much. This is why I love all you guys. You are always so understanding, and really go out of your way to work with me……especially (in a rare instance) like this where I am doing a switch a roo on you. Sorry about that.

Hopefully this clears it all up for everyone!!!

Hey Rob... you don't happen to have a couple of stuffed Jayhawks that you would be willing to part with would you? I need them to finish up my decorum. I'm having trouble finding them around here!

I'd be happy to get some for you....if I thought there was a chance in hell that they wouldn't be defaced, defiled or demeaned. :suspicious: LOL

I did get a good laugh at GAB when I came out of the trailer and found a Jayhawk hanging from the corner of our canopy.
