Anybody hear if Franklin is going to have a contest? Nothing is posted on KCBS or MABA schedules.

This was a post on a Canadian BBQ forum from last August, I haven't heard anything new since then though.

It was posted by the Frying Pan team:

Quote:
SMOKE ON THE ALLEGHENY in Franklin, Pa. will fly again. We had a wrapup meeting last night and the sponsoring organizations were very happy and want to make it an annual event. Once we set on a date July or early Aug. we will announce it on the forum. We want to check with KCBS and Canada to make sure we don't conflict with an event in Canada or near us. I passed on all comments we received and several things will be added or changed to make it different. The judging tent will be moved closer to the cookers. Teams will be added on the grass across from where the cookers were this year to make it closer and so the public doesn t have to walk as far, that area has been wired and water added for camping. a porta john will be added near the end of cookers row. we need to attract at least 25 teams next year to make it a qualifier for a draw at the jack daniels and this should also up the prize money. they also are talking of dropping sunday and making it a friday and saturday event, with allowing set up on a thursday. I want to thank all our Canadian friends for their support and hope to see all of you, and more, next year. thanks again fran and judy fry, the frying pan
You may want to try and contact them and see what's new.
