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.
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.
