Any idea why Bob. Is it the lack of teams?

Oh, heck no!

Probably local politics...I've heard there's been a lot of infighting over the last few years.

Where did you hear that?

That would be a terrible rumor to spread if it wasn't true.

The Pig Jig is HUGE. Everyone and their cousins cook pork in that region. The cookoff is just part of a regional celebration with lots of activities going on in the surrounding area.

Here's the 2005 website http://www.bigpigjig.com/ . I can't find the 2006 stuff but since the contest isn't until October they probably just haven't put up the information, yet.

Since it is a MIM event it has some really heavy hitters in the world of pork bbq. Whole hog, shoulder, and ribs...as far as the eye can see!!

Default Big Pig Jig is in jeapordy

I reposted here, as opposed to the other posting with BBQ contest links..
If ya have interest, get invovlved

This letter was sent to Kell Phelps, National Barbecue News, from a gentleman in Columbus, Ga...

Dear kell


I thought you and your readers might want to know that the great powers of columbus have decided NOT to hold the PIG JIG this comming year of 2006.I talked to Francis Quick the person in charge and she told me it was not set in stone.this is where your readers come in if every one calls her and or her boss we might be able to change there minds. here is there info Executive Director Susan Lawhorne (706)322-0756 and riverfest Director Francis Quick (706)323-7979 and the email is hcfinc@historiccolumbus.com. I know we can change this around with a little effort.

THANKS
JERRY GOWEN
COLUMBUS GA

Moderator's Note.

Threads merged--this is clearly one subject.

The "topic" was introduced in your initial post:

"I'm hearing rumblings that #6, The Big Pig Jig ,is in jeapordy this year"

It all fits just fine in one thread.

I'm sure you didn't mean to spread an untrue rumor, but it happened. The Pig Jig in Columbus, Georgia and the Big Pig Jig in Vienna, Georgia are two different events.

Thank you Ray.
I must admit I was drawn into this discussion because I was not paying total attention.
I had heard the rumors about the Columbus GA event last fall--I just never put the two similar names together.
I was uncomfortable with the whole thread--just could not pin it down!
Now I know why.

Thanks for the clarification!

Lesson learned I hope.

I just know that the Big Pig Jig is a big event for Vienna and they raise lots of money so I don't see it ending.

Hell, they own the facility with all the structures the teams have built over the years.
