I have attended two events held on Indian Casino properties. One up in Oregon and the other at Veajas. I was wondering if the CBBQA had thought about using some of the data from the Veajas venture to approach other Indian Casino properties about hosting an event. I know they are usually looking for events to help them advertise.

I've talked to nearly all of them in NorCal, none are interested in doing any outdoor events.

I've also talked to the lady running Viejas to get some stats from her so I can help with sponsors, I got nothing back so I gave up trying.

Also the Viejas BBQ event has nothing to do with the casino, it's run by the outlet mall there.

Like many casinos outside of Vegas, they compete for every dollar available to be spent inside their doors. Possibly need to include room revenue, meal revenue, etc in the sales pitch, and help them understand the event is a traffic builder as opposed to an outdoor BBQ buffet (A common misconception about contests, I believe)

Yes :) I have made a sales presentation before :thumbsup:
:rolleyes:
One of the Fellows was very pleasant and explained they get
calls daily with plans to "bring crowds in"
We cant say at this time BBQ Contests always generate numbers of visitors
ready to part with their cash
Our sport has to develop the crowd appeal factor we dont really have at this time.
This is what I am working on in 2008
Think La Quinta times 100
