I'd be happy to lend a hand. Before you get started, you need to ask yourself a few questions:

1) Where will you hold this event? The coliseum won't work. They would require you to use union labor to do everything. Set up teams tents, unload equipment, etc.

2) How will you pay for the area that you are using?

3) How will you raise money for the charity?

4) How will you pay for prizes?

5) Will the event be sanctioned? Where will that money come from?

6) Do you have a staff that you'll be working with? Believe it or not, it's a lot of work.

7) Will the event be a standard BBQ comp? ie. What categories will you have?

8 Who will judge the contest?

9) How will you advertise?

10) Are there any other events in the area during the time frame that you're looking at?

Feel free to lmk if I can help out at all.

Just shows you, all the hard work you guys put into these things. The phone calls, the BS, the ups & downs.......More credit to you, phil & anyone crazy enough to set this stuff up for a bunch guys in love with the comp of Que....
WE ALL SHOULD THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME & EFFORT with anything you guys do to get this stuff up and running every year.

As far as the starter of the thread, more power to you & you ability to do for others. Charity & good will for others is very few & far between these days. We do march of dimes, smile train, breast cancer & others........pass the love

Eric,

the BBQ Central Radio show had BBQ Thom on his show a while back and they spoke about what it takes to put on a competition. It is the June 22nd edition of After Dark.
