We have a number of guys trying to decide if they are going to sandbag 2007 away or cook
Jump in Boys if this is your first year you are a Rookie and your in the race
You could not have declaired last spring if you were not in the sport
There are enough contests left this year to make a run for RoY

Thom beat me to it.

The purpose of the June 1st deadline was to get active teams to "declare" and start populating the rookie race. It would not be a very fun race if no one knows who's a rookie until December. So, the deadline was instituted. Of course, it doesn't apply to you if you start after 1 June. Go ahead and declare when you begin competing and join in the fun.

If you prefer to sandbag - Well, I suppose the rules allow you to. Just know that one good showing at Viejas, Clovis, or Phoenix can put you in the driver's seat. There are big points coming in the final months - and it's a So Cal heavy schedule.

Can we see the standings in the Rookie Race?

I think we could do more in promoting the races in both ToY & Rookie by expanding the standings to include more teams.

It would be great to see some of the "Backyard Guys" come out and help get these competitions to 50 teams sooner than later.

Clovis should be bigger than last year, we have more teams...they just need to come out.

Jason,

Northern Cal has a few good solid rookie Teams with you guys, Dave & Deny & Oaks Hardware all showing up.

Looks like we will have a few more next year when the Pat Brandons and Smoking Aces that made noise in the Backyard Division in Fairfield start to show up in 2008.

Good luck to you all then rest of the way.

My Dear friend Glen Stanley,

Smell my Butts??? We can't even see your Butts-LOL

Fear is a paralyzer...just do it. Remember, it's just BBQ.

I'm sorry,

I didn't realize that not having the money, time off work, or all the equipment to compete was considered sandbagging.

There are soooo many reasons why I have not competed in anything more than a couple of backyard events this year, none of them being the intent of sandbagging.

Darry,

Take a good look at my logo...........

That's the view you'll have when I do start competing :p

Well, if that's the case I don't mind you taking 2008 off as well. Wait for just the right time & place. Maybe a few more classes...that's the ticket, you'll be the best educated Pit Master in California.

I was hoping to beat you a few times before you figured out what the hell you were doing. LOL

You will definitely be a very "hyped" rookie whenever you do make your splash in Competition BBQ. I'll be pulling for you cause you are a "good Guy".

So now...you cooking in Clovis? Doesn't peer presure work anymore?

If you could have just put a little of that pressure on my wife, my son, my new boss, and my partners at work, I might have been able to do more this year :rolleyes: I really couldn't have picked a worse time to find a new hobby :angry:

Unfortunately, I will be at a conference the weekend of Clovis.

Glen will be a forced to be reckoned with when he throws his hat into the ring, so I would like to encouragwe him to sit on the sidelines a bit more. Perhaps I could call your boss Glen and suggest a few more assignments? :D

I can always start a new team with me and Mom and our one little Traeger and be rookies -- I have never been a head cook or protrayed one on TV. Of course, I would not be much competition since I refuse to stay up all night and I don't think 3 hour butt and brisket would do well.

Darry,

It took me a minute to get that one :huh: :lol: I have some band aids with little pigs on them. Maybe I'll send them to you......

One of my big expenses for equipment is a custom made shade. It's more like the ones you see at swap meets. I had to order it special made so it will be tall enough that I won't be banging my head all the time. It's gonna run me about $300.00 !!!!!

Kristin,

Please........I don't need any help in that area. My boss has no problem giving me more work than I can get done in 40 hours.

Sure it will! Cook it really hot then put it in the cooler overnight. Then warm it up the next day. I'm sure there have been worse turn ins...

Funny that this was posted nearly TWO months ago, and look where we are now.
