Come up to Michigan. Lowell is this weekend and Grand Rapids in 2 weeks. If I remember right Mooresville is right near Indy. If so you live very close to one of the best mentors there is - Dave Stamper. You should look him up and see if he's looking for a helper. He'll probably be doing the cotnests you have listed. I think Dave is on here sometimes and he's also on the BBQ Forum sometimes.
But like I said you're welcome to hang out and do chores for me anytime. It's an open invite to people and 2 or 3 is fine. Looks like I may have 2 helpers already for GR.
