Default Anyone looking at 2007 yet?

I took a few minutes this morning and jotted down some potential contests for 2007 keeping in mind I'll probably need to go from eleven to eight contests due to a once-in-a-lifetime nearly free trip to Hawaii in March. Here's what I'm considering:

April 13-14: Osage City, KS
May 11-12: Platte City, MO (the moved this one from early June)
May 25-26: Great American BBQ - Kansas city, KS
June 15-16: Sedalia, MO
June 29-30: Cameron, MO (GREAT payouts!)
Aug. 3-4: Laurie, MO (shut your pie, Bob! )
Sept 7-8: Blue Springs, MO
Oct 12-13: DeSoto, KS or Columbia, MO (will decide later)

Might squeeze in another one if I can find an opportunity to not take Friday off and have someone set up for me.

You should concentrate on buffing the cheek prints off your smoker this winter, and THEN look at the schedule.




ok, back on topic.

Gotta see how finances are after Plant City in a few weeks. I finance my comps with catering money...the CFO questions $$$ spent from family funds!

We're talking about some, too, to plan out next year:

May 18-19 maybe Sevierville, TN if there's not a replacement for Carmel, IN that weekend
June 1-2, Crestwood, KY
June 15-16 maybe Elk Grove, IL
In July, either Cabella's or Grand Rapids (hopefully not that one)
August, Madison, IN
Late September, Maggie Valley, NC
October 19-20 Nelsonville, OH

We're hoping to do 4-6 next year. Not going nuts, but it would be nice to do a few more.

Well yes, I am looking ahead to 2007. I am planning to cut my teeth next year, and try my hand in a comp. Princeton, WI in August. Close to home. If that goes well, who knows? Maybe I'll try Sparta, WI.

I am already thinkin about next year.... Only cuz I have not had to cook the last couple weeks, so it is driving me nuts!!!

....and talked about the Polar Swine at the AR with some folks, looking forward to kicking the season off in Feburary, at about -4 degrees F!!!! From there, I have a few "Must do" contests - Osage City, Platte City, Marshalltown, Laurie, Roots Fest, Greeley.... I'll try to set the rest of the scheduleafter I figure out what catering funds/sponsors we have.... I want to shoot for 15 events again this year.... more if the funds let us.

Hey Jeff, I don't know much about the comps, but I've been thinking about it some. I would like to go to a couple if nothing else. What I'm getting at is do you have a link and could you nudge me in the right direction so I know where and when these Q contests take place, especially in MO and KS.

Thanks!

The KCBS site will have the 2007 schedule up and update it as new contests are added. Some are already out there. www.kcbs.us Most of the contests keep the same weekends year to year.... so look at this year's schedule and choose accordingly. I would start close to home, and branch out after you learn what you forget. I believe I have posted my contest checklist in earlier posts as well....

Also, I know you could get assistance from any of us that are out there... Always here to help...
