I do think there is room for a bunch of contests in the NY/Long Island area.... as long as the venue is strong.

C'mon Chris.. i showed u the secret handshake.!!

anyway..

yeah, friendly venues are our problem.


Finding a private sector venue that will have us. We lucked out with 'small town' politics and the C.O.C. in sayville. As soon as you get involved with larger gov(such as state parks) or places where unions are involved, permits and greased palms become a problem and the barriers go up.

It was reported/rumored that at one contest aroud here a few years back a specal somebody with a key and a uniform wanted a $2000 "fee"(in cash)to let the ice truck INTO the venue.

The organizer decided instead to make trips with his pickup truck to the ice truck which was about a mile away, on the other side of the gates.

Yeah, so I'm sure you guys are working all the angles, but maybe private businesses would be a good option. Someone interested in promoting their business via the contest (thinking the Harpoon model). Does the Brooklyn Brewery have 50 20x20 spaces with water and electricty?

The neighborhood that the brewery is in is not exactly "cooker friendly". I approached the owner of the Blue Point Brewery out here on the Island and they have no space.

What about a larger retail chain, maybe a faimly owned furniture store or the like that has a a huge lot? Maybe a sale in conjunction with the competition or even using their lot during off business hours. Scott

We look to the private sector first.

Problem is alot of the major places are union shops and thats proved to be a problem. But have no fear.. we have more stuff on the horizon.

As long as it's called "Battle of Smoke in da Eye". I'd love a BBQ grand championship.

what about "The Brick House Brewery"? it's popular, centrally located and there is alot of space in that parking lot it's attached to. plus it could be done in conjunction with a live at five event in the summer where there are live bands and the street is closed.

Great idea! I've gone to one of the Friday night events during the summer. It sounds like this one could be possible.

Already approached them last year. Not friendly and not as big as you would think. They would have to keep space for customers during the event.

Have a contact there, though...
