Hello all,

We are trying to get a feel for the response we may get at this event. We had over 3k viewers watch the American Royal and hope to continue with good coverage to many more events. So if anyone would like to see this event covered, please chime in.

At the moment we are on the fence, but a good push will send us South.

Thank you,

I think it would be GREAT! There are a lot of folks who would tune in from all over the country to see who wins.

That would be great...but i dont think cell reception is that good down there, atleast when we went last year it wasnt. Im not sure how you transmit though so it may not be an issue

I for one would really enjoy seeing all your footage.
I want to show my wife what happens at the Royal contest.
I loved the off the cuff conversations that you folks did, no rehersal, nothing fake....it was all for real.
Keep up the great work.

I am sure if you could afford the trip our and back there are several bbq brethren teams that would welcome you with open arms to hang with them to assist in cooking.:thumb:

I vote a HUGE yes! Thank you for your excellent coverage of the Royal and I am excited as can be about the prospect of coverage of the Jack.

Thank you for even considering it!

Seriously, Sled? There's already videos all over YouTube. Like reading any thread here... if you don't wanna see it, don't watch it. I was there last year campaigning and hanging out and had a BLAST! I want to go compete really badly but in the interim, I'm happy to see live videos of our friends having the time of their lives!

My vote would be yes. Watch the Royal and it just makes you want to go. Like others have posted may be the only way I get to see it. Like the format you did the Royal in.

Yes im serious. Has nothing to do with whether i would watch it or not. He asked for an opinion and I gave mine. Thats it

I vote an enthusiastic YES!:thumb::thumb:
While a can see how being there in person would be a better experience, I am not made of money, so I cannot currently afford neither the trip, nor the vacation time. That being the case, I feel that some Jack is better than no Jack. Also, you guys did such an amazing thing at the AR that I would love to see what you can do down there.

I think it would be great! I'd like to see coverage of the parade of teams and the awards at a minimum. Shigs in Pits did a webcast of the awards last year via Stickam and we watched it from home and then moved into the car and kept track of the awards vis my iPhone while we ere on our way to dinner.

I do agree with you Sled. While mine might be a little different reasons. As a competitive cooker, I can't go to the Jack, unless I was cooking it. I've had offers to go back. I don't want to judge, I don't want to pass things out, I don't want to hang out with teams. I want to cook.

Is that a slight to any of the teams that are there? Not at all. Iwuill welcome any of the future champions with open arms into our little fraternity. I will be the happiest guy in the world the day they win. That day will bring me back to the year I won. To what I had to go through. To those people that weren't there with me to help me celebrate.

I just don't want to be there in person or in video.

I do understand why folks would want to watch it. I can only answer for myself. I hope I don't sound selfish, because that is not my reasons.

I see Scotties point, I went last year as a spectator, saw the sights and did the tourist thing. part of my family that went last yer are heading back this year and invited me to go. I thought about it and it didnt appeal to me to go back after cooking in 6 comps this year it would kill me to go back and not cook in it. The next time i go there will be the time i am cooking in it.

Sledneck

You guys might not understand what im talking about but Im not saying that you should only be able to partake in it if you are the best or lucky to get drawn . So much coverage /media of things it almost leaves you without any imagination of what events etc are like. Not just in bbq but in so many other things in life. I loved the fact going there last year that it was all new to me. Its lind of like that cabinet full of videos I have, I taped so much stuff over the years but the truth is i rarely if ever go back and watch them. My memories of whats on those tapes sometimes seem so much better

Did you get 3K unique viewers or potentially the same viewers going back to the link multiple times over the weekend ?

Aside from the parade and the qualifying parameters, I really don't think the Jack is much different from any other regular contest set in a park/field like setting..

Pretty boring to watch... kind of like NASCAR on TV unless you're hoping to see a familar face or catch an interview

Unless you are really into Competition BBQ, which Vinnie I'm guessing you are not.

I enjoyed the Am Royal feed. Was fun to see who won in real time from my seat in Boston.

Yes they were unique. We had a total of over 5k with repeat offenders. However as I am sure you know, the metrics of identifying who is actually unique and who is behind a blocked connection can be dicey, so the potential is that we had more...And with the issues Ustream is claiming with their ability to track, well who knows. I do know that the sites that hosted the feeds got hammered and the stats are off the charts for a normal weekend.

pants will be around the ankles, a box of Kleenex nearby during the drawn out 2 hr award ceremony.

Iwanted to thank Icon IT Solutions for the AR broadcast(s) and PLEASE cover the the Jack.
I watched as much footage of the AR as I could from Kuwait. I found myself getting up at 0400 and logging on just to catch some of the teams in action. It would be great to watch some of the Jack as well. Keep up the good work. I'll be watching:clap2:

All this time I thought in your sig line you were referring to Stephanie Ragusa,
the teacher who had sex with her student down here in Tampa.
Cause I know what she'd do!
Damn.

I vote yes on coverage :thumb::thumb:

I too enjoyed the coverage of the AR. The walking video was interesting and the awards were great to see, however the audio was less than enjoyable due to the multiple echo and the awards were next to impossible to understand. I hope you can correct the audio problems but I'll be there anyway!
