Wiki: 2nd Annual Ribs, Pigs and Watermelons
Posted 10 January 2013 - 04:32 PM
I just wanted to let everyone know that American Family Housing will be holding the Ribs, Pigs & Watermelon event again this year, this year with a $10,000 prize pool. Thank you guys for your patience with me last year. I know things were a bit tight at the mall. That is why I am pleased to announce that this year we have moved to the beach
This year the event will be held at Huntington State Beach. Our goal this year is to have at least 50 teams attend. I know we can do it. I am really excited about the addition of a Kids Que Competition this year. This will allow kids ages 6-14 to get a taste of what it is like to be a real bbq competitor.
I know many of you have supported Kristie's event over the years. It was a great event and helped to support a worthy cause. We hope all the teams that loved and supported that event in the past will find Ribs, Pigs & Watermelon a suitable charitable alternative and a great way to help shelter the homeless.
We have a lot of great things planned this year. We will continue to update the events page as more details are made available.
Thanks again to all the teams that made it possible for us to hold this event again this year. We know that without you it would not be possible.
See you in August,

We do not have an early bird price this year. Even though the venue this is much more costly we have kept the entry fee as low as possible. This year we lowered the cost for a 20x20 space. We also kept the cost of the 20x40 the same as the early bird price of last year. Because there were a few people that also needed additional space this year we are offering a 20x50 space.
Even though we are not doing an early bird I would still suggest getting your entry forms in ASAP as we are expecting a large turn out.
As for electricity I am not sure of the technical details. I am assuming it will be the same as last year. If additional electricity is needed I am sure something can be arranged with Courtney for an additional fee.
Look forward to seeing Pigpushers again this year.

FYI I haven't received a TOY application as of yet. Make sure to get that in ASAP.

Ribs Pigs & Watermelons is moving to the Weekend of Aug 16-18.
It has come to our attention that the 5th Annual Smokin' on the Water in Lakeport is taking place on the same weekend as our event. We have had a number of Northern California teams tell us they would like to attend our event. As opposed to making teams chose between the two events we felt it was best to move our event up a week so that teams have the chance to do both. This does require final approval from KCBS & The CBBQA but we are being told that the new date should be just fine.
We are terribly sorry to any team that has already made arrangements for the original date but we felt it was in the best interest of everyone to move the date. We are also excited that the date change will enable Kelly & Kathleen to rep our event.
We also updated our logo...
Hope to see everyone there!
