The Perfect Butt is gonna leave my Maine vacation early to be there

Going to Troy this year. If they announced it earlier, might have given it a shot.

Why would KCBS allow two comps so close to each other the same weekend?

Why not?

They are 2.5 hours away. I know we do not get a ton of comps in this area, but that seems like a far enough distance to attract teams from different geographic areas.

Bob was also considering the following weekend, but that is the same week as the Rhode Island Comp, and he thought that was too close.

Thanks for having one in Ct! Bob ran the original one and that's where we first started in backyard. He is a cook, restaurant owner and a competitor so he knows what he is doing.

Unlike, say, Kansas that has a million comps, there aren't that many sanctioned contests in NE. We hate to miss a good one. There are a few open weekends in August now with the Maine comps dropping out, one of those dates might have been better.

August would be too close to Bob's "Blues, Views" Westport Event which is Labor Day Weekend This Year. He had to pick a date and get this event off the ground, and with the event being a fundraiser for the interns at Mill River Park & Greenway and the Mayor’s Youth Employment Program there were more things to consider overall than just what is a good weekend for a BBQ Comp. So if 15 teams sign up this could be a CT State BBQ Championship, it will be held at a great new downtown location!

The Westport event hasn't been a full KCBS sanctioned event for several years - as far as most competition teams are concerned it doesn't exist.

I have seen a lot of organizers arrange events without taking into account what teams are looking for, and they sometimes struggle to get participants. Troy is "right next door" in pro BBQ terms.

I'm not sure if a first year 15 team event needs a proclamation for The Jack - it might. Would be nice if The Jack published all the rules, but they don't.

What's up with the Saturday check in time? Have to be there by 8 AM (9 on the KCBS application) when the cooks meeting is not till 4? I'm thinking of entering but the only way to get there from central NJ by that time is to check in Friday night which I'm not sure I can do.

wickedbbq'r 06-09-2013 07:07 PM

Check is in the mail! Looking forward to this contest. Bobby runs a great event in Westport and I know he will do what it takes to make this one a success as well. See you there!
