Default GOING TO THE ROYAL IN 2014 What to prepare.

Our team won our first grand so we get to go to the Royal. Should we compete in the invitational and the open or just the invitational? What should we expect at such a large event? How does an out of towner store that much meat safely; do they supply refrigeration trucks?

I would do both since your already there for the Invite.

Do you mean this year or 2014?

You can buy the meat over here when you get to town...chicken anyway. Talk to a Hy Vee or a Price Chopper and they can order it in for you.

I just did a contest in New Mexico where it was 122 the day of the contest. We got the meat before we left on Wednesday and stored it in a cooler. It won't be that hot here in October, so as long as you are prepared to keep adding ice, you'll be fine.

Do you have a spot for the invitational yet?
Deadline was 17th.

There is also a Restaurant Depot a few blocks from the Royal site, but I would think that they get hit pretty heavily. A good 7-day cooler should keep the meat just fine.
