Default SAM's CLUB Marietta 06/02 SPOT AVAILABLE!!!!!!!

We have a possibble conflict and may not be able to compete this Friday at the the Sam's Club event in Marietta - http://www.kcbs.us/sams-club-series.php

Please let me know if anyone is interested in taking our spot so that we may get a refund from KCBS - otherwise, we may have to eat it! KCBS has contacted all of those on the waiting list and no luck so far.

Thanks!!!!!

Greg

O.K., I'll throw in a 100 bucks for entry.......that means you get into this event for 150 instead of the usual 250

Good luck, Kirk. I don't know why they can't fill the Marietta contest. It seems as if it's the first in the nation to fill up, always has several teams rotate through the wait list and can only end up getting 28 teams to show up.

be a great chance for some new team to get their feet wet and get a discounted entry fee.

It is strange that they can't get 30 teams in Marietta each year. Dont know what to make of that.

It doesn't work this way! If you want to compete, sign up on the web site and toss your team name in the hat.

This entry is not transferrable.

Seems pretty obvious that the shine has worn off this penny.

Can't say I'm heartbroken, since they dropped Marietta on the same date as our Euharlee contest 30 miles away. Karma, anyone?

Gowan,

We were concerned when we saw that earlier in the year. We sure didn't want the Euharlee competition to 'go away'.

What I don't understand is having the southeast Sam's competitions (on asphalt no less) in the heat of the summer while the contests in the midwest and western states have theirs at the end of Winter.

And water.... Good grief. Would it really be that difficult to run a couple of 200' runs of garden hose to some splitters? Not even providing it at each cook site but at least getting it closer?

Dang top prop, we should have just teamed up..... i ate the entry. sounds like there are some shortcomings with this event anyway. Maybe thats why KCBS couldn't fill our spot seven days out with 5 teams on the waiting list!
