The venues absolutely suck, at least in the South. On a blacktop parking lot in July and August, no running water, generator power only and as far as I know, the gensets FAILED within 3 hours at both Birmingham and Marietta.
No thanks to 2012.
I had a little bit of a power issue (Fowl Butt BBQ was powering a dozen CPAP machines
) at the event in Traverse City, MI but overall I thought it was one of the best organized competitions and think the reps, organizers, and Troy Black did an outstanding job.
If I could compete all year at these venues I would.
