    We run an amateur cook off in conjunction with our K CBS contest. The dates are June 27-28, in Mankato Minnesota the competition is the Bend of the River Cookout. The amateurs can cook up to three categories and the meat is included in the entry fee.
  4. Are there any armature events in Nor Cal SF Bay Area anytime soon?

    Our local Lions club is very interested in doing what your church does (obviously as a fund raiser).

    If you have any "formal" documentation, rules and other such information could you either email it to me or surface mail (I will repay your postage).

    Appreciate anything you can offer.

    I'm down in JAX, FL but have friends and family in the S MD area. I'm considering heading up for the Southern Maryland Brew & BBQ Festival on Aug 2. If you're on FB you can check out the page there. The lady that informed me about said they've had pretty good turnouts the past few years. Hopeuly my leave gets approved so that I can make it. It would be my first comp so I'm not expecting much but I got to start somewhere and figured I could at least get my feet wet here.
    Sorry if this has already been mentioned, my ADD wouldn't let me read through all 50 comments.
