I think it's great that they lowered the entry fee. How often do you see that ? Why limit to 50 teams though?

We will definately be back for our third year at Ribfest. It is a very well run contest. The complimentary fly swatter did come in handy last year!

I had an issue I emailed Rolf about, basically saying I didn't think they were as team friendly as when I first started attending HVRF six years ago, I think it is getting too big for them at the 70 team level, so maybe they want to get back to a smaller manageable event - He said "big is not always better!"

FYI - for teams that will do Sam's Club on Long Island and then head upstate to New Paltz for the ribfest...
I have been in contact with Stephanie and Rolf regarding how to accommodate teams that will arrive late from the Sam's Club contest.
If you plan on doing both contests, note on your application that you will arrive late saturday and that you were doing the sam's club contest. By letting them know on your application they will have spots saved for the late arrivals close to the entrance and where we will be less likely to disturb the teams that have been set up all day. Rolf will also be on hand between 9 and 11 pm to do meat inspection so that the lat arrivals can get to cooking ASAP. These spots will be larger than the 20 by 20 and be an extra $60.00.
Stephanie and Rolf have been very accommodating and willing to help make it happen for those teams that want to do a "double header"

I believe one of the factors is that you need more reps when the comp goes over 50 teams.

Last year they flew in a rep from the midwest at a considerable expense.

I think the number of teams went down from 2010 as well meaning less income to cover the cost of the out of area rep.

Slim's is in for the double!
