A contest is a THREE day event for the cooks - maybe even 4 days - most travel on Thursday after work or on Friday, taking Friday off - they setup/cook Friday, Turnin on Saturday and Travel on Sunday. If the contest had a Sunday turnin, then most would take Monday off.
My understanding is that most prefer to take Friday off, so usually turnins are on Saturday.
Hope that answers your question
