The formatting is screwed up so it's very hard to tell what is what.

$500 for GC is fair.

We would jump on it in Cali because we don't have as many contests as they do in the Midwest and the south.

I wouldn't even consider it. You're guaranteed to lose money even if you win the grand. Too many other contests with better odds than that.

laughing, well, the chicken and ribs are reasonable, it is that damn oil that is killing all.........but, if it was in the immediate area, with a group of friends it would be a blast....

You have to consider other things like opportunity costs, time off work. For an extra hundred dollars I can enter a KCBS sanctioned contest with a $10,000 payoff for an extra hundred over that a $50,000 contest.

So many comps so few dollars and time to spend them on. Choose your competitions wisely!

If it was local (within an hour drive) I'd probably enter.

with a $10,000 pay off with 80 teams, split up over four categories, after an entire weekend of work, if you win grand champion and take first place in two categories and have three team members, you made about ten dollars an hour? Consider that! One day comps are easy and fun.
