are you doing the Royal this year?
We will definately be at the Royal Spot 707 if we get the same spot as last year. Understand that will be your first contest - good luck. We will also be doing Blue Spring on Sept 9/10. Stop by if you want - we can probably show you how not to do things.

I plan to come by Blue Springs if I'm in town, which at this time, I'm scheduled to be. You gonna have your Margarita machine there? :D

GRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!! Just called the Royal to change my official team name I submitted after discussing at KCBS... that went OK. I'm officially "Big Creek BBQ". However, when I asked if the confirmation number I received online from the Royal meant I made it in before they were full, she said NO, NOT NECESSARILY! I was a little caught off guard on that. Immediately, the ol' knot in the stomach came back. Then I found out just how long that knot might be there... "We will let you know about August 20" she said. AUGUST 20 is FARKIN' THREE WEEKS AWAY!! She says "Well, there is a very good chance you are OK since you registered electronically on Wednesday morning". "Very good" did nothing to help the sick feeling and it does nothing to help me feel like going out and spending money on that camp kitchen I am eyeing or the 10x20 canopy I found! I'm just wondering if they have to be tight lipped until the entry deadline or what? But you'd think that if they were full, they'd TELL people they're full so registrations would stop.

Well anyway, I joined KCBS as "Big Creek BBQ", a reference to the creek flowing by our town. Several businesses in the area use "Big Creek" in their names and it will be locally identifiable while not being so specific that guys from other areas won't feel like joining up.

Jeff,
Just guessing, but probably waiting to check postmarks on mail in apps.

If "it was meant to be"--it will happen.

Take a deep breath

Yeah I know but when you get all pumped up for it and then they just take a little air out of your balloon, you can't fly quite as high! :( Thanks for the input though!

Ya know what?
Even if you miss the Royal Open, there are about a Zillion Contests all around you
At least you don't have to drive hundreds and hundreds of miles like Chad and I do
Pick any of them and use that as the excuse to go "shopping"
Nice list ya got there!

Enough stress when you actually compete--just "chill out" now and get ready mentally to have fun--somewhere--anywhere

If you're serious about competition and you registered on time - plan like it's gonna happen. You've got plenty of time - even if you go to plan "B" and enter a regional contest instead of the Open. Also, remember that entry opens in MAY! :D

As big as it is the Royal really is just another contest. Blasphemy? No - reality. I look forward to the day I compete at the Royal but I'm not holding my breath while trying to win an Invitational slot and I'm sure not driving 2500 miles for an Open. :D Now, if I lived closer - yeah, I'd do the Open but I'd register earlier. I mean, after all, the pay out is exceptional not to mention the Jack entry and automatic entry into next year's Royal.

Take a deep breath and keep planning - August still gives you, what, 2 months!! Plenty of time.

I just looked up the dates - August 20 will give you about 5 weeks! Plenty of time to stroke out over the details! :D

Thanks guys... I'm sure things are gonna work out. If not, I guess I could hit another contest and take it by storm! Afterall, Brethren are always the favorite to win contests they're entered in, right? :)

I want a pair of your rose colored glasses! :D

Don't forget to buy your lettuce before you go to the site. The chances of buying any within 50 miles of the fairgrounds will be slim and none. :D

Last year Price chopper was on site and had a lot of produce on hand. Bought some good lettuce even as late as Saturday morning. We didn't bring enough for the sausage category.

Absolutely--here in the forum at least
Now, if we could just pack the Judge's tent with Brother's.........

The Que we love so much may, or may not, score in Competetion.

At the risk of being redundant (again) I still am a firm beleiver in going to Judge's training and then (more importantly) judging. That will give you an appreciation of just how really "fine" some championship quaility meat is. Then you just have to figure out how to cook that well consistantly and you will walk.

Good luck.

Kick, my ability to take off time from work for the rest of this year is getting very limited. Since I already paid for the Royal and requested September 30 off, I'm at least going to wait until I've heard from them. When is the deadline for entries in BPS or is that just something the AR does?
