Hey Ray, It's like 12 or 13 I think. I judged in 2000 and I think that was #2 and was setup by you in 01 or 02 at Rcihmond park. It will be super hot with temps in mid to high 90's on Friday with little shade for most. Staying cool will be a challenge. It;'s hotter and more humid here than in Tampa. I want to go home.
It sure doesn't supply a lot of things we want to see in a contest but some of us consider it home so we still cook it although I was going to vend Taylor until that fell apart.
Remember when entry was $100 refunded if you showed up? This year it's $175 for a 15x30 spot. Things change.
And I remeber that booing but I don't think it was the lowest. Those porta potty's overflowing Saturday morning took the prize. They've come a long way since then and Rich is gone and John is now running things. Still no power and a water buffalo if it shows up. But we had some good times there.
