Hi,

If anyone knows of states (aside from NY) that have their own championship series (ie. numerous events that work together to crown a 'best of') please let me know.

I'd like to offer them a free ad in Smoke Signals.

Thanks!

I don't think PA has one, but it sounds interesting. Any PA teams interested and any have any ideas on how to make it work?

Tennessee used to have a Tennessee Tripple Crown I think, but that is gone as of now. Last year there was the Highway 31 champoinship between Lewisberg and College Grove. I'm not sure if College Grove is happening this year.

I believe Alabama has one. Missouri has a "North Missouri Championship" (two contests only) and I believe they're doing an Ozarks Championship this year. Both are done by organizers and not a state association.

Thanks everyone! I'll start to try to dig out contact info for these championships.

In the meantime, please feel free to pass along my contact info and let them know that if they would like a free ad, it's there for the taking.

British Columbia has the "BC Cup" - cash and legacy trophy, for the highest overall point champion for their 5-6 PNWBA-sanctioned events.

FTR, I found out tonight that CG will not be having a sanctioned comp this year, so unless some one else on Highway 31 has one, no Highway 31 Champ.

There is and it's also known as the PA Midnight Smokers Cup ;). It's given out each year at New Holland.

it only uses your top 2 finishes, I (not the only one) had thought it was the highest over all total scores (combined) from all the comps, but I was wrong..well actually depending on who you talk to it could be 3 comps or......


It is awarded by the NewHolland Summerfest commitee and is called the Pa govenors cup.

Pa Midnite Smokers has earned the award for the past 4 or 5 years.

I just checked the new Brethren-sanctioned comp outside Philly in May. Counts towards the Governors Cup, unfortunately it's the same weekend as the Middletown DE KCBS comp.
