Default seeking competition team experience

I am very interested in gaining some competetion experience, and don't really know where to get started. A member of the KBCS suggested trying to find an existing team that might be willing to allow me to help out, and gain some knowledge of rules and presentation. I live in michigan and would be willing to travel to some extent, if at all possible...

Thanks for your consideration....

Here's what I did - go to the KCBS site and find a particular comp that you would be able to attend. Then post something here asking teams if they plan on attending that particular comp. If you have more detailed info you will be more likely to find a team.You can also contact the contest organizer. I did that last year and ended up hanging out with the Texas Rib Rangers for 2 days!

Be glad to have you join me at a comp or two. I usually cook by myself so am always looking for a runner including this weekend (Sunday) in Lowell. Grand Rapids is in 2 weeks and then MT Morris in late August. Let me know. The offer extends to more than just being a runner. You can show up Friday morning (Saturday for Lowell) and sleep over in your car and do the whole thing if you want. I provide food.

Ford,
Sorry I can't make the Lowell event...But I am seriously interested about upcoming events....I just have to sort my ever increasingly mixed up work schedual...Sometimes work hours change or become more demanding at the last minute...So things remain uncertain....Hopefully I can work things out with you, as to let me be your new dishwasher, or runner, or pretty-much whatever you need.....Not that I have a clue what to expect...But if it's got to do with BBQ...I'm sure it'll be good.

Sincerely,
The back yard pro...Who don't really know,
Firecrackerjack

sounds great. My out-laws volunteered to help out Sunday at Lowell and I have 3 helpers plus Carol so with Vending I may now have time to actually pay a little attention to the competition meat.

Let me know about GR and MT Morris. Sounds like Scott is going to run for me at GR. If you can get there Friday afternoon you can see all my prep. You're welcome to stay for dinner or all night for that matter but you'll need to sleep in your car. You won't be the only one for sure. And Saturday morning I start around 5:00 with rib prep so it's an early start if you really want to see it all. But whenever you're there is great. If you PM me I can send you my number.
