Default Competition on Saturday

Is there a specific reason that contests are always held on Friday and Saturday? It seems to me that there would be more people competing or at least trying to compete if they didn't have to take a day off from work to do it.

Why aren't there more Saturday-Sunday contests?

Cause your supposed to be in Church on Sunday morning. Lessen your a heathen. :)


Around here the traffic on Sundays is killer. Trying to drive home on a Sunday evening in traffic after a brutal weekend of BBQing would end up in a few fender benders.

Doesn't really matter, you wind up taking time off if it's on Friday or Saturday.

I have tried to get some of the nebs contests moved to Sat/Sunday but apparently I am a very small minority who would prefer it that way. Getting out early or worse, taking Friday off is just about an impossibility for me so I always get started prepping hours after everyone else is already kicking back and enjoying themselves.

I can only do Saturday/Sunday comps and have only experienced comps on those days. Grill Kings, Harpoon and Hudson Valley Rib Festival are all Saturday/Sunday comps. We are going to try more this coming year and may have to do just the Sunday portion because of commitments. I am in the same minority as nancee.

Yours in BBQ,

Cliff

Despite all of the complaints last year, I am looking forward to doing grill kings in Brethren style for 2007. Worst case we'll all just get together and sit in my driveway!

The reason for Friday and Saturday is because NASCAR is on Sunday. I could not compete during NASCAR season if we were always cookin on Sunday. I vote to never change the days. Just one guys opinion who gets to take his rookie stripes off next year.

I've bitched about this for years and the best I can tell they are on Friday-Saturday because "That's how it's always been."
IMO it was a Friday night thing when it started but now we all show up Friday morning or even on Thursday so it's ridiculous. The church argument always comes up but when Nascar comes to the South on Sunday everyone seems to work that out. The cooks just like Sunday to travel and rest up and so do I, but the sponsored prize money will never truly grow until we come to our senses and have our contests last the whole weekend. With the rigors of turn ins, our events are essentially over at 10:30 Saturday morning.

When you go on a fishing weekend do you pack up and go home on Saturday afternoon so you won't be tired on Monday? Or a golf weekend or to the amusement park or antique hunting?

I'd much rather the Sat-Sun contest because I work nights and I usually have to take off work two days just to compete on Fri-Sat. events. It is too hard to lose two days work pay. I use up my vacation days so fast and then I have nothing left. It would really be nice to see more Sat-Sun events in my area but since there isn't I have to man up and lose the paycheck for my 2nd love.
