The KCBS contest will be the weekend of July 5 & 6. The amateur contest will be July 7.

KCBS registration is open. You can save $50 by registering by March 2, 2013 and using the coupon code brethren2013.

http://firinupthefox-kcbs.eventbrite.com.

You can pay online or by check. If you want to pay by check, select other payment options, instead of Register when starting to register.
Wondering if you could tell me about this $16.12 fee for signing up. I have never seen anything of the sorts. According to this Eventbrite, even if I send in a check, there's still a fee. Can you go into detail about this please.

We're in, but I had a question also (besides Dan's above) What are you planning for water availability? Same as last year?

I would rather not travel with a full (90 gallon) water tank if we can avoid it. will it be possible to fill up there? I know last year it was a bit limited

Is there a Brethren discount for the amateur contest? Sorry - I don't want to come across as cheap, but I noticed there was for the KCBS contest. My momma always said that it doesn't hurt to ask!

We will have water, but you may need to fill and carry. Details are still being determined.

Amateur discount code is brethren2013 - it is good until March 31, 2013

The fee is for the eventbrite registration service. If you send a check the fee is smaller.

We've chosen to use eventbrite as it provide a number of features:
- It consolidates all registration in one place
- Eliminates needing someone to rekey all the entry information
- Allows online payment
- simplifies communications leading up to the event
- Provides event management features during the event
- Provides analytics after the event

This does mean that we incur a service fee for eventbrite and a small credit card charge if you choose to pay by credit card.

If you select other payment methods and pay by check - you can mail me the check with your completed form. - There is no separate mail-in form.

If you have any questions - please let me know - info@firinupthefox.com

Default Possible Date Change

All - we've heard lots of feedback about our conflict with the Sams Club contest in WI, the same weekend.

I have until tomorrow to let KCBS know if we want to change the date - which we are considering as August 16, 17, 18. Would that date work better for everyone?

The following are tentatively on the same weekend.

  • Montana State BBQ Championships at Montana Fair*Billings, MT
  • Conifer Mountain BBQ Challenge*Conifer, CO
  • 9th Annual Pepsi Wyoming State BBQ & Bluegrass Festival*Worland, WY
  • 21st Annual State Barbeque Championship of Nebraska*LaPlatte, NE
  • Classic City BBQ Fest & Tailgate Show*Athens, GA
  • Hudson Valley Ribfest*New Paltz, NY
  • Stand By Your Grill*Fulton, MS
  • Sam's Club National BBQ Tour*Laurel, MD
  • Smokefest*Marshall, MN
  • Madison Ribberfest: Barbeque & Blues*Madison, IN
  • BBQ and Fly In on the River*Excelsior Springs, MO
  • Winnipeg Barbeque And Blues Festival*Winnipeg, Manitoba, CA

Well, having already paid for it and scheduling time for 7/5, I don't want to cause a problem. But I'd rather not have back to backs with this and kenosha, or have to go back and reschedule vacation time. And if o can't reschedule, we'd need to back out, and expect a refund.

Just out of curiosity, how many folks, other than the 2 or 3 on this thread, have said they can't do this one because of a conflict with Sam's?

Have there been that many folks from last years event that wont come due to the Sam's event? I'm sure there are some, but enough to reschedule?

I want your event to be a success, because the more we have close to home the better. But you asked, so there's MHO

I appreciate the honest feedback!

We want to allow as many as possible to attend -

I've had several (6-7) that have said they wanted to go but were cooking Sams.

I've put the question out in email as well - and we'll let you know what we decide based on feedback, and of course refunds would be coming if we change the date and you couldn't attend.

I'm one who is already committed to the Sam's local in Madison, but the August dates wouldn't work for us either because we have family vacation the week before and wouldn't be home in time.

Im with Dann. Keep it the 4th weekend. If folks want to cook it, Mad city is a couple of hours away and they can do a double header. You will never make everyone happy. August is out for me...
