We'll be there again this year. Prepare for any type of weather - one year I was in shorts, last year I was bundled up - mist or rain the whole time. This is a pretty large contest with over 100 teams. If you have any specific questions, let me know.

is it a well organized comp.? electricity? ice? anything else you can think of to watchout for or bring would be great to know....when we pull up that day do they assign us to our spots? we are getting a double spot, dont need it all but it will be nice to have the room i think, can pull the trailer in which is 16' with all our stuff on it and then park the truck on that spot also so easy load and unload....does that sound like a decent plan?....the one comp i did last year it almost killed us walking back and fourth to get stuff from the truck, was 35 degrees and raining no heaters totally unprepared but now i know

Overall it was organized pretty well, there were some minor issues but nothing to get worked up about, at least until the award's ceremony which was late (I think it was about an hour after planned start) and the Reps did not give out detailed sheets due to printer problems. There is no eletricity, so you need a generator. I think ice was available, but didn't need any (it was mighty cold and the ice I brought didn't melt off). When you pull up in front of the bowling alley they will check you in and assign a spot. Be prepared for the double spot - last year they were 18' wide and 40' long, not 36'x20'. I probably won't even disconnect the trailer from the truck if the trailer is level - love having the truck in next to the trailer.

Stop by & say hi - I'm going to try to get my same spot back which is on the grass almost due west of the turn-in.

Oh, I also noticed that the KCBS turn-ins don't start until 1:00, so you will have to move your normal cooking schedule back an hour.

Where did you see the information about the change of location? From what I see Check in at Finnegan's Lobby & Cook's Meeting and awards in Waterford Room which is the same as last year. Turn in was also at the west door of the building which is the Waterford room. A couple years ago, you had to walk about 2 blocks to the firestation. Last year they said that everything was moved to the Finnegan's/Bowling Alley property due to liability issues (mainly alcohol) and the parade.

We're in!
Missed last year but enjoyed the two years before that. Other than needing power its a great contest. Our guests also enjoyed the parade and bands at the bars that were walking distance away.

We'll be there we have cooked this the last 2 years, weather can be the killer, first year was great 40's last year it was cold. The only complaints we had were port-o-potties were full on Saturday and awards were way late. We used a generator (they don't offer power).
