Default Contest Idea

OK, I am toying around with an idea to hold a competition to benefit Operation BBQ for Our Troops Midwest Division and I need all of your honest opinions.
I am looking at a date that is extremely out of the norm, but I think it would be a blast and all will have a great time with some of the ideas I am knocking around and some of the sponsors I feel we can get.
There is a poll to come, but feel free to both vote AND voice an opinion. Your input is going to greatly determine if I should go forward with the contest.

What I have in mind:

The contest will be held in Fremont, Nebraska.
Contestents will have access to RV park power/water, showers, an all purpose use room, and breakfast in the morning plus more
Contest entry would be 100.00 - 150.00
We are shooting for a 5K purse
Contest dates will be December 31st, 2008-January 1st 2009

With these dates in mind, here are the temps for those days since 1997



So knowing this who would seriously enter this contest? Give me your thoughts. Poll to follow.

If it wasnt on New Years eve I would consider it, but there is so much going on between Christmas and New Years it wouldn't even be a possibility for me. If it was like the weekend after new years I would probably do it.

If we lived closer to Nebraska, definitely would give it serious consideration. We don't usually do much on New Years Eve (mostly because its Amateur Night). Better hope that you don't get a swing in weather like 2000 and 2001. Good luck!

KRE Smokers in Chicago sponsors a winter cookoff in the Chicago area in early February and it is a lot of fun. This past February the outside temp was 5 below and 18 teams still showed up. He makes it a one day event and the categories are ribs, chicken, brisket and pork loin and it is a State Championship but not KCBS sanctioned.

I get back from Cancun on the 30th. I could stand a bit of cool weather.

A one day event would be cool, you wouldn't have to fight the cold throughout the night.

I would certainly consider it if was KCBS sanctioned. I've been toying with the idea to go down to FL for the New Year's contest in Felda. NE is a lot closer and and I could save a ton on gas.

We did the Winter contest in Great Bend this year. They allowed teams to set-up prep areas in a heated building while the cookers all remained outside. We chose to set up outside and tough it out. It wasn't so bad but I remember thinking that I would go inside if I had the choice to make over. And, they had 42 teams make the trip so holding a winter KCBS contest might not be such a bad idea.

I'm not a cold weather fan, Char. I'd probably pass. I actually enjoy the down time in the winter months.

I went down to Felda last year and I must say... It's way nicer wearing shorts and a t-shirt on New Year's Day...

We'd probably do a show like that if it were within three hours of us, sanctioned on not. Afraid you're a bit too far from NW Georgia to participate though.

Sounds like fun, but I'm still thawing out from last winter. Can't stand to think about another one yet.
