Default HEADS UP! Blue Springs, MO is filling up!

Just heard that as of today, there are only ten spaces left if you want to cook Blue Springs and haven't paid yet! I understand that last year there was a 20 team waiting list. Get 'em while they're left if you haven't already!

Thanks for the info.......Bass Pro will catch part of what doesn't get in at Blue Springs.

Someday, I will cook Blue Springs....it was a visit there that got me started cooking, buying the 'dera, and visiting this site.

Hey Gary, just thinking (and maybe it's not a good idea)... what if Blue Springs was notified by Bass Pro about their contest and contact info , then when they fill up, ask Blue springs if they'll point out to teams that there's a contest in Columbia the same day as an alternative to Blue Springs. Might not hurt as some folks might not keep up with the KCBS site like we all do! Maybe Bass Pro even offers to draft a letter and send it up to Blue springs with some stamped envelopes to mail out to anyone who sends an entry to BS after it's full. Just my marketing brain kicking in... may not be feasible.

Default Blue Springs Blaze-off (MO) Sept 8-9 (Merged)

Besides Big Creek, I know Wayne and Bob are cooking this one. Anyone else?

And due to being too late to get in on DeSoto, ruling out the drive to Hermann and refusing to cook the open at the Royal, it appears Blue Springs MAY be it for us this year unless an idea I had this afternoon involving Arthur, IL works out. Wasn't exactly the way I envisioned this season ending...

Good luck to wherever you go...Why did you say that you were refusing to cook the AR open? You guys are a good team you should take the chance and cook the royal. From what I have seen you guys do pretty good.

Thank you Mark! Coming from you, I take that as a huge compliment!

The reason we decided against it was MAINLY that I decided I like smaller comps a lot better (40-60 team range). I'm not good with crowds at all. But we really were less than thrilled with our first experience there last year. If we had not been over on the dark side, I believe things would have been better. You probably know what goes on over behind the Royal building out by the tracks... huge parties, drunks taking a whiz wherever they felt the urge, numerous fights, people walking in and swiping your food. I went to DeSoto two weeks later and LOVED it. While the GAB had really good service to the teams, I didn't enjoy myself as much there as I did Platte City, Sedalia and Cameron.

I had a guy walk up and take the lid off of one of my cookers at about 2 am at the Royal last year. He realized the error in his ways and replaced it. Still, in my opinion the Royal is not even close to being as bad as Lenexa as far as the parties. You can't even move on Friday nights and would be better off walking to a gas station to take a leak. I will never set foot in that place again, but there is just something about the American Royal...

anyone interested in unsanctioned contests in the midwest - could also consider Greeley, KS that weekend. It is a fundrasier for childrens charities in the county. Fun contest.
