May 4-5 Augusta Hippodrome

It looks like Augusta is shaping up to be quite a contest.

Not only will Walter be debuting his WSM's and 55 gallon drum, but it appears that Jack's Old South, Roadside Grill, Boggy Pond Brigade, and Smoke Shack will also be attending.

Not to drop names but, thats Myron Mixon, James Britt, Buster Dunn, and Scott McDaniel.

I can't wait. It will be good to see old friends again.

Good Q!

Jack

OH, I see, you don't want to come out and play during the worst cold snap and wind storm in the last century. Drop a few names and you're clearing the calendar!

If it tests right, we're rolling out the clone. It will be great to have you involved.

Good Q!

Jack

Okay... So you're saying you don't need me. Is that what I'm hearing? That's what Cappy told me you meant.

I know the deadline has passed for this event, but I wonder if they would still take a few more teams? We talked about doing this one, but never got around to sending in the application.

Yep its gonna be a heck of a time for sure , my team mates and I are having a little meeting tonight to talk about rubs and sauce both of which I will make at home. We may have found someone to make us tee shirts as a donation as well. Hum wonder if they could put us next to each other now that would be one heck of a group ?? I saw a 10 x 20 canopy at Walmart for 98.00 and the side walls for 43.00 may have to get some money together , otherwise it will be 2- 10 x 10ft canopies.

Our first banner will be made of poster board till we can get a proper one made.

Walter I would recommend you check out eBay for the banners and the EZup pop up tents. There is a great selection on there and the prices beat Walmart.

Cappy's got a bad head. I swear he must have given you the extra calcium tablet at Ladson.

Good Q!

I already have a 10 x10 ft pop up canopy , so does Ken , and I got a tarp to pout over the top so it wont leak in the middle just in case. And with Walmart my sister inlaw gets a employee discount. But I always check Ebay all the time for cookers, grill stuff, and yea canopies!!! Thanks for the good idea .

Chris, The jury is still out on my attendance there. Chances are we won't, so you should be safe. It will be a last minute decision. :P I would sure like to though since my next contest isn't until September in Moncks Corner, unless Boone Hall raises it's head in the meantime.

The guy that put Boone Hall together no longer works there so I wouldn't hold my breath.

Well they only had 46 teams show up but was a great event , for my team and I it went well and we were happy with things , had the perfect location for us.

Just got off the phone this morning from a lady in North Augusta that told me if I do 6 butts and some of my blackberry bbq sauce for her she will give us team tee shirts as many as we need , aprons and a nice banner in trade for some of my pulled pork , Yea she gets a sonpsorship level for that .
