Hey Brian! Good to see you here.
Saw your facebook post about this. Great advice from the others! Are you also looking to add people to spread out the expense? Marc and I have been doing the same thing but casually. I think you'll find this is a slow process and you and Tommy (I'm guessing) will be the core for some time. We regularly invite people we know are into BBQ to join us at comps but there is only one guy so far we would even consider asking to join the team. He has been great because he is good at keeping Marc and I on task and schedule, knows where to pitch in when needed and equally important when to step back. Finding someone that wants to do more than just hangout is a challenge, finding someone dedicated enough to share expenses is damn near impossible.
Hey - next year if you need help on a weekend we aren't competing give me a shout!
