Default Forced to change venue for new OK comp

Well... the new OK BBQ cook-off I am planning for next July won't be happening at the USPS training center in Norman. This is actually a good thing. I had planned to organize this competition as a charity to benefit the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. Federal law prohibits "fund-raising" on federal property. So I had dropped that out of my proposal and pitched the event strictly as a showcase for the training facility.

Word from on high at the USPS is that they for see "too many hurdles". So that is out... BUT, I just talked to the Cleveland County Fairgrounds and they are very interested in talking to me about it. I'm reviving it as a charity event and they love the whole idea. I get to tour the grounds and talk to the Fair Board president tomorrow after work.

The big challenge now is to find people willing to commit time to getting this organized.
