There is a question that says size of smoker on here. Under that is size of RV. What are you to use for size of smoker?

In you case it probably doesn't matter since you haul it in the toy hauler and cook in the back. I think it would matter is you had a separate trailer cooker. But, of course, I have no real idea since I've never gotten one of those letters :( :( :(

Some smokers are as large as trailers. I am sure they just want to make sure they have room... Was excited to see our letter from them last week. Pretty cool!

The spaces are kind of free form so they need to evaluate what everyone is bringing to decide where to place them. Just spell out how big your rig is when opened up and tell them you cook on the tailgate.

Not for sure. It's one of those letters you have to complete and send in letting them known you will participate if drawn. Sept 3 is the draw.

Does anyone know when they are due and a contact number? Have not received our yet, and don't want to be this year's Toad Holler.

I guess I didn't answer that last year so they decided to give me a spot that was 10 x 40 long that was curved and half on the walking path. I Figured that was awkward so they gave me a spot out back that was half a foot ball field. It was nice and roomy and looked amusing with my 3 ezups in the middle. The downside was I felt I was at a different contest. For those first timers (as I was) make sure u make reservations to Mary bobos for lunch

Betcha don't have to worry about the draw. Ahh the benefits of winning the ARO. :clap2:

Our odds went from 1 in 3 to 1 in 2 this past weekend. Fingers crossed! :fear:

Just because I'm curious: in a state like NY with 8 different "state championships" (and more to come from the sound of things) does that mean a GC of one of these comps only has a 1 in 8 chance of making the Jack?

Yes. But it doesn't always work out that way. Sometimes a team will win an automatic and then its 1/7. Or they get picked out of a draw from another state before the NY draw etc...

We just won a qualifier this past weekend. Should we wait on the letter or go ahead and call?
