Default Poorque - Princeton WI

Was looking over the calendar this morning and noticed a new contest in Wisconsin. Now I certainly don't choose contests on payouts, but was wondering if this might be a typo.

$70 in Prize Money. Prize money to 5th Place

The entry is $50, plus a $30 per night camping fee, so maybe not. Just wondering if anyone knows anything about this comp.

I saw that too... I like the entry fee but also have questions...

Only a $50 entry fee?
Charging $30 to 'Camp' Friday night?

As for the $70 in prize money, I would hope it's a typo, but it could also be because of the new regulations requiring a letter of credit or proof of deposit for the prize money advertised...

Actually, after reading thier web site I found this...

The purpose of the event is to promote Competition BBQ as a clean safe family sport. This is a break-even event not being used to raise funds for anything. The fees are to cover sanctioning, supplies and the token prize money of $70 and nothing else.

So maybe it is correct...

That's interesting. I like the idea, although I'm probably in the minority here. At least with this competition I have no delusions of breaking even or coming out ahead.

Sorry, but that contest is a lose money situation from the beginning. Don't get me wrong, I don't do it for the money, but to be able to recoup your expenases is a big part of BBQ contests. I also know the organizer, but she wants to put on something at our expense? No thank you.

I to think I'll pass on it as well...

We are just now getting to a point where we aren't loosing all of the money we have invested in a comp. To take one on that even if I win GC won't cover my meat purchase is really not in the equation and on top of that it's not even a qualifier... As of right now, the next closest comp for me that weekend is over 300 miles away...

Maybe we'll take that weekend off....

I think it is a qualifier, I had recieved an e-mail about this comp, but I am unavailable that weekend so I just deleted it.

It's sanctioned and they have a Gov proclamation. Doesn't 15 teams make that a qualifier?

I think the intent of the contest was to lure newer teams to competition bbq with a lower cost contest, with the benefit of having a JD draw available to interest some more established teams. Interesting idea, but I don't think it will be on our schedule in 2010. Hard to justify not spending the extra the money for a "regular" contest and take a shot at possibly a substantial cash payout. I hope the contest achieves what the organizers have in mind, but I likely will pass.

I agree Matt. Great folks, but it's one thing for me sucking and not be worthy of getting my costs back. But if you win at this, you still are out a lot of cash... A win is not worth that much to me.

Dive ,I wanted to address the comment about the $30 to camp friday nite.This is a campground and they are charging Anita and Tony a reduced rate of $30 per site.I think she was trying to explain the cost of the event as far as what they are charging for the entry.

Not a problem bro, thanks for explaining it...

Man, I hate to admit that Scottie may be right...

I guess if the prize money would have at least covered the entrance fee it would make it more enticing...

While I think we'll be there since it is a qualifier and since the next closest comp for us that weekend is Ottumwa, Iowa... If something opens up that weekend that is within reason distance wise, we may have to change our minds...
