Pork in the Park without Sandy
 
Going to be a sad event this year!

Yleekyoti 02-22-2013 09:32 AM

Wheres sandy?
 
This question was asked on another forum....
I wonder what the cost would be to have 150 or so small, campaign sized signs made saying something like, "wheres Sandy?" Someone could make those signs available to any team that had a desire to fly a sign. Those signs could then be posted on that teams site while cooking at the PITP. Hmmmmmmm if nothing else, it could be good for a giggle or two.....
.
Checked into it and this was my reply...
.
Ok,, just checked with my sign guy.... those little campaign signs cost 9.00 a piece... I explained the situation to him... he knows all the parties involved and is on our side... so the new price is $6.00 per sign ..two sided with the wire stand. anybody interested in a "WHERES SANDY?" sign?
.
I can be reached on facebook..Broke BoB's BBQ ... Or BoB yleekyoti McCoy.. My Broke Bob's BBQ page has a link to my fundrazr site for donations thru paypal!!!

Before you have to reply to yourself again, maybe you could go in a little deeper and explain who/what Sandy is/was and some more background info. You might get more responses and 'newbies' could be more informed, which might make your/this event bigger.

Anyone who has done Pork in the Park knows Sandy. She sent out an email, but I'm not feeling posting it without her permission.

Sorry that some people will be in the dark on this. Just looking to rally the regulars to pork in the park .salisbury.....looking for input..make some campaign type signs..or just print some paper ones..and tape them up.

I received Sandy's email and was perturbed at the situation as described. I wrote her back, asking if she was interested in some kind of campaign, letter writing to the powers that be etc, on her behalf. As of yet I have not received a reply from her.

I think the circumstances are a real shame. So much so that I seriously considering boycotting PITP, but unless a good number of teams did that, what's the use. I'm still upset about the whole thing. Sandy imho IS PITP!!

I went to this contest year 1 when there were 18 teams. Sandy was a big part of growing it to 100+. Always very loyal to the teams that supported the contest. I haven't been the last couple of years but sorry to hear sandy is not involved anymore.

It appears that someone in the County government has risen to their level of incompetence.

Yleekyoti 02-23-2013 09:41 AM

Any hoo... If you feel the need to complain about Sandy being kicked out... this the guy to talk to.

We need more details in order to protest/complain.

Yleekyoti 02-23-2013 02:47 PM

If you got the email you have the details...if you did not ,,, show up at pitp and complain after the show.

This really doesn't help. If the need is there to protest it may help to at least give us some basic info. If Sandy took the time to send out an email then she obviously wants her side of the story known or she wouldn't have done so. I understand if there is hesitation at divulging the entire email, but it's only fair to give the people you are asking to protest some info. Having more teams with signs will drive the point home. More of the public will see those signs and possibly engage in conversation as to the meaning. Waiting until after the comp would seem to defeat the purpose and limit the scope of the protest.
