I haven't seen any updates on this event. Early bird expired 8-8-14. Doesn't appear that promoter has applied for this to be a TOY event. No team list or pushes by promoter for teams to sign up. Anyone have any info?

Nothing about the BBQ contest that I can see. The rodeo is listed, but no reference to the comp being a part of it

No idea, the person I spoke to didn't know a lot other than it was still going to happen.

I mentioned that the might want to get on here and update the event info.

Event just went up for ToY approval by the BOD and I don't see any issues moving forward so it should be good to go.

Would someone direct me to info regarding the prize payout for this event. I noticed they applied to be a TOY event and early bird has been extended until 9-19-14. Hoping for more updates from the promoter.

Sylvie,
The latest application form on their site says 9/30/14 is the deadline for early bird. Looks like you might have some more time before Linda Erb responds to your question.

Hello folks! I am sorry it is taking so long this year to get everything together, but we have had some staff changes here at our facility this year and we are still trying to get everything up speed. We are looking forward to hosting all of you here this year! We are having some issues getting Linda's computer to access the forums which will hopefully be resolved soon, but I wanted to take a moment to get on and make a couple announcements and answer a couple questions since she hasn't been able to get on yet.

First off, we have had our competition called several different names depending on where it has been listed. To clear things up and to help market the competition in the community, we have changed the name. Going forward, the KCBS and ToY competition here at the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds will be called the Blazin' BBQ Throwdown.


I see that some have asked about the payouts. We are in the process of submitting them to KCBS, but they should be the same as last year. Linda or I will post them once we have confirmed them with KCBS.

I know that the application has been difficult for some folks to find on our website. There is now a button on the avfair.com homepage that will take you directly to the landing page for the application. You can also reach the application directly HERE.

As Donna mentioned, we have moved the early entry deadline back to 9/30 to give everyone more time to get their early entries in.

Hopefully, we can get Lina access to the forum here sometime today so she can get on to answer any other questions!

Just left the AV Fairgrounds with a paid entry receipt. As of right now there is only 12 teams signed up, I don't know if I was the 12th team or unlucky 13. I'm hoping to see many more sign up, 2 years ago there was 18 teams and last year there was almost double that.

Thank you Darren. I would like to sign up for this event but I am awaiting more info from Linda regarding payouts. Third year event with less than 25 teams is a bummer.
