Wiki: 3rd Annual Silicon Valley BBQ Championship
Posted 27 March 2014 - 10:42 AM
The 2014 Silicone Valley BBQ Championships is only a few months away. Plans for this year’s event are coming together nicely. The City of Santa Clara and its Parks Department are excited to have this event again in Central Park. This year Parks Department has turned over the entire Baseball Field to our club to do what we want with it. We’ll have a stage in the field with live music all day including the awards ceremony. Along with all the teams we will have additional food vendors, business vendors, food trucks and the all-important Beer Booths. The kid’s zone in the meadow will also be back this year.
The parks department is working on getting us more permanent shore power in the field reducing our need for generators.
We will have Peoples Choice again this year with 2 changes. All who are serving peoples choice will be accepting tokens for purchase of the samples. Samples will be $2 each. To help cover cost of the event Santa Clara Rotary will be keeping 25% of all samples sales. We are still working out procedures on the distribution of tokens to the public and collection/reimbursement to the participating PC teams. More details to come on this soon. There will also be public voting for peoples choice, winning team will get $250.00
I’ve gotten a lot of comments last year that many didn’t get the e-mails I was sending out. Please add firstname.lastname@example.org to your email contact list to reduce the chance that my communications with you get blocked or sent to spam. If you participated at our event in t last couple years you should have already received some emails from me about this year’s event.
Lastly, if you’re on facebook, please like our page. We’ve put together a great marketing team for this event and they will be doing regular posting s about this year’s competition.

I just have two suggestions for your consideration. Adjust the weather to a balmy 75-82 degrees and please do not charge $10.00 for team member parking.
looking forward to another great event!

Happy to Facilitate!
Been trying to communicate with Mother Nature for years now, but just like a woman she won't listen to me. But I'll keep trying! Squeaky Wheel Gets The Grease or in this case hopefully Awesome June Weather.
All teams get a parking pass, giving you access to the reserve parking over at the community rec center where the judging is performed. One pass per team!
