Default Any brothers going to the Royal this year?

We finally decided to do the Royal instead of The Best of the Best this year. We have started to make travel plans, a budget, line up sponsors, set up an RV rental and all that. I'm looking forward to a nice road trip with the boys. Who else is going?

Our first year after 5 years of Q, but I think the wait will be worth it. the sunday turn in is not my favorite thing as we got to be back home to work monday morning. So as it looks we will not stay for awards. At least that is the plan for now.

I know Team Q and Great Grills have qualified for the invitational, so they'll bothe be there.......I'm sure MoKan and the boys will be there as well.....I',m hoping that we can cook it, but it will probably take an invitation to be able to justify at work that I need the time off, same with my brothers.......

Not to cook, but trying to talk my wife into coming up to visit. I know Winemaster and some others might be planning to do the same.

My wife and I have signed up to judge, we did it last year and had a blast. Met alot of the Brethren had some awesome Q had some pretty bad Q as well but a great time none the less. I hope this sunday thing works out the way they want, cause like ScottD said, Monday is a work day.

If we qualify this year we will be going. Last year, we qualified but already had paid for a trip to Jamaica the same week.
