Riverfest overall is downsizing a bit after a large growth for the 30th Birthday Bash last year. The BBQ contest was almost too big for the festival, and we believe we can turn it into a prime stand alone event.
It was incredibly difficult to find a contest date that didn't have some level of competition from somewhere.
KCBS and several others coached us to consider this weekend, and so we did.
We're finalizing a few things in regards to entry forms, prices and prize money. Our plan is to give a pretty big bump to the prize money this year - details will be published well in advance. We want to compete at the same level as Westmont, Morton, and others. We should have all the details published in two weeks.
Information will be updated at www.firinupthefox.com
first, and eventually make it's way to facebook at http://www.facebook.com/FirinUpTheFox
Our plan is to have this contest the first full weekend after the 4th of July going forward.
