Supposedly. Why do I have to keep being the bad guy asking for rules? We are now less than TWO weeks away (for those who wondered why I was asking two months ago) from the contest and I'm still concerned about being DQ'd for some weird last minute rule in the grilling contest.

I know Eric and team are working their arses off and I'm trying to help and support where ever I can, but we abandoned NEBS grilling rules (after they did a heck of a lot of work to bring some consistency to grilling categories) to do some "fun plating", coupled with on site judging, sausage vs. fatty, etc.

I get very few opportunities to go out and compete and like to think ahead and plan ahead to maximize my fun. The economy sucks, work for many of us sucks, so I'd love to find a way to go and enjoy a great weekend without useless BS!

It seems so easy for people to ask questions and get answers about the Jack or the Royal or whatever, yet I have no clue what to expect at a contest I've been looking forward to for 12 months????

NEBS rules were not "abondoned"/ NEBS was given the opportunity and turned it down.

Ash hole. You're the reigning GC (by default since the contest namesake isn't showing) so you're all good.

I just want to make the point that it's been 2 plus months with no clear rules. It's not that freaking hard. I'm spending money to come and loss money. At least make the process somewhat friendly.

The grilling rules have now been sent to all of the teams.

If you have not received a copy, please let me know by sending an email to saberinc@verizon.net. I will reply with the rules.

1) I responded to your question about when you would be receiving the rules on Sunday (I believe that it is post 152). I said that you would have them by late Monday or Tuesday. It is Tuesday. You should now have them.

2) One of the reasons (among many) why it is difficult to have things ironed out and as smooth as possible is that this is a strictly volunteer venture being run by people who are donating their time. If we had more people involved and volunteering that might have sped things up. Feel free to donate some time next year.

3) You are comparing a second year event with an innovative judging and presentation category to two of the most prestigious for profit and long running events in the nation.

I apologize for the delay.

Eric

I am. That's what happened. If you would like to know why, I suggest that you contact NEBS.

I completely understand their position and have no problem with it whatsoever. Hopefully other events that I'm involved with in the area (such as Smoke and Steam in Oyster Bay) will fall within the parameters of what NEBS is comfortable with and be part of the TOY series.

Alright. We'll leave it at that. If anyone thinks I haven't offered every spare minute I have or any spare resource I have to support this contest and every contest I can, so be it. I asked for clarification on the grilling three months ago http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...6&postcount=12, not three days ago.

And I'm not comparing Sayville to the Jack; I'm just busting Phil's balls for not defending his Sayville title and Vinny's balls for never even making it here. Makes for great drama in 2009.

It would greatly help us out if someone could volunteer to be an 'event photographer'.

We didn't have any organized photos last year and thank goodness a number of teams shared their photos. We would like to be a bit more organized this year and if you could help it would be appreciated.
