I agree Scottie, the Great Lakes BBQ Association has instituted a Team of the year Program, we have an Annual Winter Banquet and an annual Membership Meeting. We have even been able to financially help some select charities. It does take committed individuals and it can be a challenge to unite all parts of a state, however, it can be done, it just takes time and effort.
