Default First Draft - Site Map for Smokin' Up A Storm

Here's the first draft of a site map for the competition. Comments, criticisms and money are all gratefully accepted.

http://www.facebook.com/#!/photo.php?fbid=126522487446628&set=a.1265223574466 41.22438.120602704705273&type=1&theater

I'm behind a corporate firewall... Is this picture visible? It appeared when I pasted the link, but now all I see is the HTM IMG tag text.

I can see it from here. I don't know if space allows but how about putting the teams closer to the turn in. It doesn't say which end is north so I'll just say by looking at it 'up' is 'north' etc...

Put the teams where the vendors are on the southern side of the map, if space allows and have your 'southern' vendors where the teams are currently placed. I don't know how far the walk is from where the current teams are set up to the turn in but I'd put the teams closer to turn-in IMO.

Default Agree with SteerCrazy

I cook alone and the distance between competitor spots (particularly the low numbered ones) to turn-in would make this a real challenge.

I agree with comp spots being closer to the turn-in location.
Also with all that space why a limit of 25 teams? Looks like it could go to 40 easily.

Moving the team spots closer isn't really an option on this site. The location for the teams is set by where the RV/electrical/waster/waste connections are.

What about a turn-in tent at the cooking sites and a shuttle vehicle that moves the boxes from the turn-in tent to the indoor judging area?

I will include a space on the entry form for solo cookers who would like to have a runner volunteer.

I'm trying to keep it down to a manageable size since this is my first BBQ competition as an organizer. The other open areas don't have any sort of hook ups. Long extension cords and water hoses would be required to set up more site (not impossible). If the response from teams is big enough, I may increase the number of entries available.

Dates have changed to July 13th & 14th due to scheduling conflicts.

No, that is not an option. When KCBS accepts the box and if there is a problem like dropping they are regulated to drop all appearance scores and the that box is awarded the highest appearance scores given in that category. So if you have any problem in transporting this will have to happen. A LIABILITY that can be side stepped.

As a competitor we do not want our boxes shaken from getting a drive on a cart. A drive back to the site is welcomed.

Why not make sites closer with the understanding that there is now electric and we can run our own generators and cut your entry fees for that.

The distance from site 1 to the current turn-in is a moderate speed two minute walk. Many other comps are a much longer walk. I can move the turn-in point closer, but I really don't want a maze of electrical cords and hoses all over the place, which is what would happen if I moved the comp sites.

No hookup fees are in the entry fee, those costs are being paid for by a sponsor. 100% of entry fees minus KCBS Fees will be paid in prizes.

I'm assuming then your vendors are not going to have electrical?
