Why don't you just tell me I'm going to be GC. Damn you Thom, nothing but a tease. Give me info!

BTW - I have no idea what the heck those guys from the City are doing on that proposal. I can't get anyone to contact me. As much as I want there to be a comp here, I don't want something that is half arse either.

Sorry. I'll be cooking with several other teams the week before for American Cancer Society - Relay For Life, then Modesto the week after.

Wish I could do every one of them, but my team just don't enjoy traveling much. I have to put incentives up for them, like me paying for gas, meat or t-shirts, aprons or hats for everyone. Their spoiled. That's why I'm a BBQ whore. I show up at contests looking for teams that need help.

Excellent! Someone to meld into a contender! We'll see you at Westley and then maybe Modesto. If you want to cook a crap load of butts, then show up to the Relay For Life and help out there.
