Default BBQ @ the Beach State Championship - Raystown, PA Sept. 17-19th"

BBQ @ The Beach Raystown, PA Sept. 17-19th

We are working on our final sanctioning packet but I wanted to get this info out for the teams who will be interested in joining us for your first year event.

We will be hosting a standard KCBS event with a TBA grilling non-sanctioned event. We are also working on working out all the points on a People's Choice Rib event.

We will be having 20-30 teams (which makes this a Jack Qualifier) and setup in the parking area at Raystown Lake beach which is at the 7 Points Marina area.

We have much more info to release but this is a "keep your calendars open" announcement as we hope to have everything final in Feb as our Corp of Engineers paperwork has taken a bit longer than planned.

The over all comp will be put on by the Raystown Region Visitors Bureau and the idea and leadership falls on me so yeah me! We are hosting live music for the entire weekend, planned kids activities and other all inclusive family events to make this a fun time for all.

More to come!

About 320 miles for you, and a few less for me.

Yeah I tend to agree, I doubt I could do two weekends in a row just yet. Guess I'll have to pick one

Not sure from where in the city but I make it in 4.5 hours to Staten Island.

We chose a weekend in Sept that according to the KCBS website, that had nothing going on in this part of the country aside from someplace in Mass.

I talked origonaly about doing this comp in mid July after boston hills and lake placid but I couldn't find interest in getting sponsors in the busy tourism seasons here. To get the best deals and the most prize money that we are looking for here, we went with sept as it is still beautiful and the weather is calming down from the hottest time of the year. Our other option was march or early April which I didnt want to do since we don't have any leaves on the trees, the place is thawing and a huge mud fest and that's if we aren't seeing flooding in the area.

This is what the KCBS website shows as for our chosen weekend... http://www.kcbs.us/events.php?year=2010&month=09

I can't tell you actual prizes yet but we have set an innitial target of prize money to be $10k with any proceeds going to an area chairity which right now (has not been settled yet) is looking like Easter Seals or Habitat for Humanity. We also will have volunteer groups doing things like parking and stuff to benefit their organizations. I can tell you that Huntingdon County Customs will be building all the trophy's so they won't be bowling style with pigs on them. As I said, we will have 20-30 teams with large enough areas to get in the pull throughs in without headaches and you will be set up on blacktop with no power or water problems. We are arranging but have not secured yet, free ice, local fruit and hard woods, and possible meat sponsors for the grilling. We are going to have the grilling included in the fee and I will announce that free structure as soon as I can get it from the board.

Booze is welcome, we will have a quiet hour of 10pm which shouldn't be a problem and may not be strickly enforced until midnight as we are away from all the camp sites. WiFi should also be there and free but I need to check on that.

We are going out of our way to make a great event to do year after year. Anyone who met me at any of the comps this year knows just how much I enjoy these things and how much I've been talking about having one here locally and get you guys down here for a comp.

So far as I said, Live music is a definite and I'm trying hard for some really popular PA bands with likely a radio station providing ambient music and announcements all day. I will be looking when we get closer for teams to volunteer for giving "What is BBQ" classes. I am working on getting something donated as an incentive as well as provide you the opportunity to sell your shirts and rubs and such. We haven't settled on it but we may or may not have either a classic car drive in or bike ride one night.

Grilling is what I am trying to get the meats donated for and the grilling entry. I am looking for some fun meat classes ( we had a possibility of it being striped bass donated from one of our clubs ) This part will not be sanctioned and will be likely judged by local celebrities and people from the crowd.

We will have food vendors so the public will not be begging for "samples"

Here are a few images of the comp area we used in our submission. Top one came from area shot by rangers. Rest were all digital images screen shotted from Google Earth in 3-D. We will also be placing this on google maps to be searched and given accurate directions although this is very easy to find.

Nice. That's a pretty part of the country that time of year... Plus it's about as far west as they come in PA... Might have to get PA off my list...

Good luck!
