To all you new teams...if you enjoy competing, fricken compete! Don't let some bubble-gum made up award stop you from doing it!

I agree with Bent... Gary, Just keep cooking and you will do just fine! You showed that you can do it!
Turn the page and move on!

And by the way, I did enjoy IB, and I did enjoy Veijas, and I am on cloud 9 because of those.
Really ? Could have fooled us !

JUST TO MAKE MY POINT CRYSTAL CLEAR EVERYONE
I am not being a sore winner/loser.


The second, is a personal reason, and Im not going to bash someone on this fourm (anymore :lol: )

I am frustrated by the lack of professionalism by the President of this group.

And, then you did!

I have talked on the phone with a number of people about my dissapointment.
I sent an apology PM to Thom about how I acted about this
Im a bit of a hot head at times, especially when it comes to something I am very passoniate about.

Im dissapointed, Im frustrated, and I am a bit pissed.

But...Im over it.

There is 2008 now. If I dont win it next year thats my problem.
I know ALL the rules now. AT the time of these events its immpossible for a Rookie to even know what questions to ask about this, because they dont exist yet (unless you actually place).

Sorry to all that had to deal with my frustration. This message board is not the place for it, but sometimes I dont see past my anger.

The California BBQ Association is a great association. I have met so many great people this past year. I will continue to support it, and help in anyway I can to make this spot grow in California.


Thom

Sorry I basically lashed out at you. It was un called for, and its not your fault. I know you do care, and to say you didnt was immature on my part.

Read your PM I sent you.

I mean what I said in it. Ignore the ones where I was a jerk.

Its kind of funny that all of a sudden all the people coming out of the woodwork and debating this topic, that really only applys to a few of us anyway.
Maybe if we could all show this much interest in contests in California we wont have a problem with so many contests beng cancelled. Just a thought.

  • Interests:"Pellet burners began in the time when Evil Stick Burners ruled BBQ history, when the Traegers made themselves into kings…and gods…using the powers of the dark side of the Force. The Technologically minded have ever been ready to obey one who wields great power. Those who learned the powers of the dark side were quick to exploit this techonology—to make War on Evil Stick Burners. Again and again the dark side has surged forth, like a storm…devouring whole backyards and entire BBQ Competitions. Those who mastered The Dark power became The Dark power. They unleashed destruction, for no other reason to anger the Evil Stick Burners. They despoiled Eggheads…destroyed whole groups of WSM civilizations, and crushed the Elitist charcoal burners. Some of them, I am ashamed to say, have returned to the Evil Stick burner."

Thank You Gary
Just like Bent in my drinking days
I had many a chance to ask forgiveness
In fact daily I need to be forgiven
