For 15 dollars patrons got the very best food.....in the best location not on the water in December, got free classes from the likes of Trigg, Stone, Gray Hixon,Soo, Groneman, Johns, Nelson, and the eventual GC Lilly...oh yeah we raised $167,000.00 for pediatric kidney disease. I think that is more raised that the next 50 contests.
spend a few minutes and look up the facebook pages of the teams that were there...I didnt talk about the teams.
Do you know who I invited and turned it down?
Was the cup half empty or half full at the King Of the Smoker?
Sorry for the rant but most people would have given up with the internet sniping.

I never cried and could careless who you invited or didnt. I said it looked like a great comp, you can obviously take a compliment but not an observation. Congrats on raising money, that's awesome, never questioned the integrity of the comp or its success. I was just observing that there were a lot of great teams that were not there. Take it how you want, could careless.
