August 12-13th Bel Air, MD BBQ Contest
MD STATE BBQ CHAMPIONSHIP
• Sanctioned by the Kansas City BBQ Society (KCBS)
• Entry Fee $175 ( must be qualified )
• Grand Champion wins $2,500 and an invitation to the American Royal and Jack Daniels Contests in October.
There are 30 spots and 24 are taken as of this afternoon. I told Ms. Elizabeth Cook I would have my application and check in the mail this weekend and have decided to throw my hat into the ring.
I have a shot at this thing and if I win woo hoo and other than that I will have a blast and learn a ton. I'm an old Boy Scout so I like to make check lists so we'll see how I do.
Now... the MONEY?!?!?!?!?!
$175 to enter
$100 of Meat [that day]
$200 of Meat [two practice times]
$100 of Gas for 200 mile round trip
I want $1,000.00 so I'm gonna get my local business friends to each give me $100 to $500 to me a sponsor and be on my t-shirts and banner. Yeah I'm a marketing whore but I can get this done if I may quote the Beatles "with a little help from my friends". Besides having their name on stuff I will let them eat the 2 Test Practice runs the weeks before I go compete.
I'm EXCITED! You know what? I can win something if things go right and my way or I would not go. I may not win but I bet I can.
Can anyone meet me there?

I can't make any promises, but I may be able to get you a really good deal on your shirts. I don't work at the screen-printing place anymore, but if I go in I'm sure they'll give me the shirts for whatever I pay for the shirts (assuming the art work you want isn't too intensive.) However, it may cost you some practice meat!
