We did Keystone last year. Great event and lots of fun. It was a smaller group last year and so it looks like there might be double the amount of teams this year. Cant comment on MT. Airy but Harrisburg was a great time.

We are planning on having some kind of baked goods/pastries available too. I believe there is to be a coupon in the welcome packet for a free coffee, I'll verify that on monday. I suggested more than one coupon per team, I'll see what I can do for that.

I just heard that all teams may be asked to set up on the parking lot this year as there is a forecast for rain on Thursday which will make the grass area soggy. Make sure you pack accordingly.

Smokin' Gnome BBQ
09-29-2010, 07:12 PM
Dear Keystone Classic Barbeque Teams:

Harrisburg is forecasted to receive anywhere from three to six inches of rain through the end of Thursday. Due to the heavy rainfall, all the barbeque teams that were to be located in the grassy area will be relocated to the North Parking Lot of the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex & Expo Center near the other barbeque teams.

Team registration, turn-in, judging, and awards will be located inside the north end of the Exposition Hall near the competitor area. A map is attached for your reference. Therefore, all teams and judges should arrive through the North Parking Lot entrance. From I-81, take Exit 67 Cameron Street, turn right at the first light, turn left at the next light and the competition area is to your left.

Sincerely,

James V. Sharp

"Team registration, turn-in, judging, and awards will be located inside the north end of the Exposition Hall near the competitor area."

If I am reading this right... Jim has moved turn-in's to the North end of the Exposition Hall... so no need to walk to the Lobby area...

The judges may be sitting along side horses though.... lol
