Default Arthur IL and Libertyville IL scheduled the same weekend this year?

I was just perusing the KCBS events list, trying to line up our schedule this year, and noticed a HUGE issue.

Typically, Arthur, IL is always the weekend before Libertyville. And although we missed both last year due to vehicle/trailer issues, we were looking forward to doing both this year. But per the schedule, they're both scheduled for the weekend of 10/12-10/13

I just emailed Stephanie at Lambs Farm to alert her, as I can see this impacting both events

Was anybody else aware of this?

Yeah, I think leap year is messing with dates. I'm not sure if I can miss Arthur, even with the success I've had at Lambs and it only being 40 minutes from home... not sure if i can pay almost $300 for a $4k contest that had almost 60 teams. I love the residents at Lambs, so it will be a tough decision for me. And I understand its a fundraiser for Lambs. Every contest for me is a fundraiser for my foundation...

I emailed Stephanie, and she's contacted Dawn with KCBS. They are (Libertyville) always the 3rd week in October, and somehow got changed around. She's working on getting it fixed. I'm just glad I saw it early

And what I told Steph is, it would likely hurt attendance at both of them. We LOVE doing them both back to back, and hope to again!

Really? It's on the Lambs Farm calendar for the 12th and 13th. I don't think that KCBS messed that up, too.

Its a weird year. Usually Lambs was the week before the Jack and was a warm up... if she switches dates, she will be up against the Jack. Hopefully I'll get in the Jack and not have to worry about it.

Didn't look that far, but the Jack's date would affect a lot fewer folks planning to go to either of the other two, although some might have to make the choice. But isn't the Jack on the 4th Saturday of October? That'd be the 27th?

And Ron, not sure who messed up what. KCBS site says they're both on the same weekend

I hope you make it too, so the other 99% have a chance to get a check around here.

Yes, I know. I pointed that out to Stephanie weeks ago. Considering it's on their own calendar for the same week as Arthur I'm guessing that's the date they submitted to KCBS.

BTW, the Lynchburg Chamber site shows the Jack at the weekend of the 27th.

Well, she's trying to change it. Hopefully KCBS will allow it and reschedule

I talked to her when it was announced. Very nice girl. No clue on BBQ contests though. She blew of off when i said to her that her contest would be affected. If they both are on the same date, ill go to Arthur. George bends over backwards for us.

I typically dont compete that late in the year but now that we will have an enclosed trailer ya never know. I judged Libertyville one year and I sure as hell would not have wanted to cook in those conditions.

I will be heading to Arthur. Last year I did great and met some real nice folks. The only issue was the trains - a little loud every 45 minutes or so every hour. Earplugs helped. I also live a short distance from Lambs farm but really like the small town concept. The biscuits and gravey were a great way to start Saturday.

Libertyville was windy as heck last year. Being it was only 10 minutes from the in-laws, it made the wife happy.
