Blue Ridge BBQ Festival (Tryon, NC) canceled?

I just saw a post on The BBQ Forum that says the Blue Ridge BBQ Festival has been canceled for 2010: http://www.rbjb.com/rbjb/rbjbboard/messages/732885.html

As Mr. Milroy says, the KCBS web site shows
06/11/10 to 06/12/10
Blue Ridge BBQ & Music Festival Tryon, NC
[CANCELLED] STATE CHAMPIONSHIP
Contact: Carl Wharton, 2753 Lynn Road, Suite A, Tryon, NC 28782.
Phone: 828-859-7427. Fax: 828-859-9500. brbbq@blueridgebbqfestival.com
KCBS Reps: MICKY WILLIAMS, TONY STONE, DON HARWELL
CBJ Percentage: 100%

I've been to this one 5 or 6 times, just as a spectator, and always enjoyed it.

Bottom line Cappy, the Chamber of Commerce couldn't come up with the sponsor money and not enough return on their investment and the general economy.

Here is a link to an article that explains it pretty well:

apparently there is a drive going on by cookers and judges to
try to change their minds...perhaps a state tourism grant could
help.
