For some of you that do not know about RMBBQA, let me fill in some empty spaces.
1. Our "Cup Events" are all KCBS sanctioned, and we have a blanket proclamation for all events in Colorado making them "State Championships", if the events meet the minimum number of teams for the AR and the Jack. Taken care of.
2. On Friday afternoon, we host a wine and cheese party social hour. It's a potluck kinda thing, but new teams are always welcome.
3. On Friday nights we usually have a big potluck dinner with all the teams invited. (exceptions are when the organizer provides dinner for the teams) rule for Friday night is "No BBQ Allowed". We usually go fried catfish, hush puppies, gumbo, jambalaya, sometimes a Mexican theme, all determined by where we are and the teams participating. Sometimes there is breakfast on Saturday mornings, depending on other things. If I'm there it's always cheesy grits, or sausage gravy and biscuits, if not more, like eggs and bacon, sometimes pancakes included. (if you want toast...bring your own...I ran out of electricity at that point...lol) We still host the 11 o'clock shot, somewhere, by someone, wish everyone luck and "Hope you win a prize!". (Rudy's claim to fame saying...and we live by it.)
So RMBBQA events aren't just another BBQ Comp, they are a weekend with friends and our families, and those families are wide spread and yet close to us. OK, I will admit that at about 11:45 am on Saturdays things to tighten up a little bit. But at the rewards ceremonies, we are all family again, and cheer for every team that gets a call.
Competition BBQ is a serious business. But right in the middle of that, RMBBQA threw in a whole pot full of fun! And it's that way at every event, new teams or "sperienced" teams, or "Pit Master Champions". They are all treated the same with us.
