Best and worst of competition goodie bag?
What's the best and worst item you ever received in a swag bag @ a competition? While not the best, the hands down winner for irony is a pen we got over the weekend from a KC company the performs cremations. Worst was a mini-bottle of some sort of cinnamon hooch that tasted like a handful of red hots candy mixed with kerosene.

When Bardwell, Ky. had a contest, J-mack Cookers were the organizers.. They had stuff we could use!.. paper towels, foil and a half cookie sheet.. Great contest.. I miss not seeing them! Madison, In. always gives us one thing in the goodie bag that I end up using year after year.

The best thing in the bag from the contest this weekend was that little blue bracelet that gave access to the facility with showers and a proper toilet.

Most funny - Fly swatters at the Hudson Valley Rib Fest last year...

Was that from the Health department?

A bottle of radiator stop leak. I guess one of the local auto parts stores was a sponsor.

The Sam's club regional contest bag was an insulated grocery bag, 4 NY Strip steaks and a bottle of McCormack steak seasoning. That was pretty good!

I was going to put this one in but you beat me too it.

2010 New Paltz had a livestock show the week before the contest. The place was covered with flies. I left my RV locked in the hot sun to kill all the flies...counted 30 of em. I went out and bought EZ UP screens after that.

I thought the organizers showed a great sense of humor about it by including fly swatters in 2011 with the contest logo on it. They also did a much better of controlling the flies.

If I remember correctly a little way back someone mentioned little Thermapen key chains were given out at a contest. That would be awesome.

Good call on the Sam's events. Forgot about the cutting boards and foil. Probably the result of the red cup... :loco:
