I both emailed and called. No response to either.

It's a bit disconcerting that the organizer isn't responding to attempted communication less than 60 days out from the event.

Bunny - I'm a little confused by the term 'backyard' in the title.

This is a standard KCBS event, right?

Thanks,

Eric

i actually spoke to her. she was very friendly, but has not got back to me yet either. would be nice to have another competition so near by. she could probably use some guidance as to what makes a great competition.

I tried calling again today. No luck.

This is getting a bit odd.

I spoke with the organizer very briefly.

The prize pool is currently $4,600.00

The entry fee is $250.00

I'll post more info as/if I get it and hopefully everyone else will as well.

Guidance? From what see she is an event planner most likely getting paid...........

A bit more info:

Team lots are 10 by 20
Parking is 1 block away
Ice will be available onsite
Teams can arrive Friday morning
Electric will be at each site but water will be at one central location (I'm not sure if that means it's reachable by hose)
There will be overnight security

It really doesn't look anything like a BBQ contest as we know it.
