Default Jones'in Already

How many of you in cold climate locales are jones'in for a contest to cook in already? I just looked at the calendar and it's still 4 months until our first contest. I have cabin fever bad.

BTW... I am starting to have some improvement in my right leg. It's gonna take a while but I am headed in the right direction. It's hard to keep a big dumb Polock down for long.

Great News about the leg Guy !!

What does the Polocks tentative schedule look like for 2007 ?

I'm looking forward to getting out there too...

Salisbury is a semi possibility for me since it's earlier in the year and I could spread out dates a bit more. I heard it rains there every year...April showers I guess.

I believe Rich (LostNation) and Chris (ique) have done this contest on multiple occasions.... Aside from the rain, how does the contest stack up overall ?

See, I tell everyone that's the problem with calendars. I am glad someone else has finally noticed.

Is Bristol (BBQ on the River) still on ? I liked that contest... I don't see any dates yet... I sent Tom Christine, the organizer, two e-mails to inquire and never received a response.

Good Luck getting into Harpoon..we all now how tight that contest is to get into. I sent the guy Fitz several e mails to see if it's even a possibility of expanding teams or having a chance and I have not even received an e-mail acknowledgement.

Ocean City might end up being the same weekend as the bash, (assuming there will be a bash) so I'm not planning on going to Ocean City at this point... That's also the same weekend as the Bands, Bikes & BBQ NEBS contest in CT...

Good Luck getting into Harpoon..we all now how tight that contest is to get into. I sent the guy Fitz several e mails to see if it's even a possibility of expanding teams or having a chance and I have not even received an e-mail acknowledgement.
Vinny,

Our list is nowhere near cast in concrete. We may decide on a trip to Virginia or Maryland also. Michele, Gary and I have to talk about it. The other thing that will influence our decision is our timing in purchasing our truck to tow the trailer. That way we can go to events that Gary is not available to go to. We are leaning toward a 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup or a 2007 Jeep Grand cherokee. Both can easily tow our load.

What contests do you plan on going to.

Hey Guy,

Don't forget to consider Dover, DE in Oct. I assume that after the huge success last year that it will be back.
