Default Question about Harpoon

My posts usually get ignored on this forum but I guess I'll give it a try anyway.....

I'm looking for some information about the Harpoon BBQ Competiton in Vermont. I looked on the website and couldnt find any info about registering or an application. I know you have to sign up in Jan, and there is an essay involved but I cannot find any info. Does anyone have any information about this competition and if so can they share some with me.....

Thanks
Marc Mangano

I'm sorry was someone saying something........

I think you have to just keep checking the site or you might try sending an email out to Fritz.

The application usually comes out at the end of Jan, and you have until the end of March to get it in. The essay isn't really an essay, rather it is two questions they ask on the appl. Keep an eye out torwards the end of the month.

HAHAHAHA!!!! My pleasure.......Yes, providing we make the cut. It's always on our calender. It's a good event if you want to vend, you can make some pretty good money. The spaces are tight though!!

I think they favor the applications of those who have been before and those who want to vend.

Yup, and Mike Paone will probably be the one dealing with the applications.

The application normally comes out on Feb 1st, so I would not even bother checking for it until next month.

Unlike say, Sam's Club, Harpoon is not first come, first served. They evaluate all the applications and select the participants, so there isn't an advantage to getting yours in on Feb 2nd. They aren't due until the end of March.
