The $100,000 Jackpot Championship

New contest in Las Vegas organized by Thom Emery! Still some details to work out but according to Thom, the contest is on! Rumor has it that its March 2009.

Do we have any members from Nevada on this forum? I'd love to do the contest!

Vlad and I are already looking into flights abut $400. for each of us to go.

Plus there are 8 or 9 Traeger Dealers close by and I am sure I could borrow a few things and... OMg I want to do this comp so bad.

its only 34 hours with no stops from my house if we drive ....

hmmm.

I may have to go get a job working midnights at Tim Hortons and not sleep to pay for it but wow what a cool trip it would be.

Diva, I'm a counselor at law. I advise you and Vlado to go for it.
