I haven't heard an official number but according to the newspaper from this weekend he has over 60 http://www.albertleatribune.com/2010/08/21/a-l-gets-set-for-a-big-barbecue/ of course I've heard that organizers can sometimes exagerate a bit:-P

My guess is its around 50 by the time we arrive Friday. Lots and lots of good teams from the sounds of it, just another weekend in the center of the best BBQ on the planet:-D

Joe - I think you are going to be pretty close. With all the additional categories there a lot of teams enter only a couple of the extra ones. I think last year there were 58 total teams but only 49 in the 4 categories. Looks like the weather will cooperate. Should be a great time!

Joe, we'll have to have a shot of Jack ... kinda a practice - yes, I'm talkin bout practice
