In any event, we will have judging on Saturday at the traditional turn in times and cash awards and prizes in all four categories. Not to mention "Bragging Rights"!! Judging will conform to KCBS style rules.

    $$ Amounts will be based upon the number of people that enter:
    Raffles will also be held for some great prizes!!!!

    We need Judges!! Please contact Theresa or Michael if you would like to be a Judge.

    Eagle Park will open on Friday afternoon and has restrooms, water (please bring your own water container), trash receptacles, ash cans, and limited electricity. In addition, they have a full kitchen facility. The park is lighted.

    Hi All. I also wanted to let you know we will have great raffles for the cookoff!!! We will be raffling off a FREE entry into the Taste of Grand Rapids KCBS event in July. We will also be raffling off a custom made Drum Smoker compliments of Steve Coddington(BBqBubba), as well as some other great goodies! It is also a good time to get your feet wet in the competition world without spending a lot of money. The unique setup allows for you to cook either 2 days (4 meats), like a real KCBS event, or one day (Ribs and Chicken).Hope to see and meet some of you there!! [​IMG]

    I really want to make this event, but the wifes birthday is the 25th, and I think she would kill me in my sleep if she didn't get a "lil" captain on her b-day![​IMG]
    But if there is anyone who could use a hand on sat, or would like some company, I would drive up to spend the day![​IMG]
