Hesperia June 28
West Coast August 16
Taylor August 30
Clovis September 20 or 27
depending on who has it correct
The Desert Nov 1

July sure looks ripe
Either the 5th or the 19th
Would a travel day off on the 4th help
or hinder?
The 19th would flow with the other dates well

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."

Cooking on the 28th then turning around and cooking week later...probably not for me! Man, its feast or famine in CA BBQ!

The 3 day weekend is the only reason it is considered

Another vote for the 19th. But not sure if I would do this, being that it is 300 mile RT for no prize money.
Now if I can talk the wife into making it a mini vacation...........

The 19th would work best for me. I cook for the neighborhood every 4th of July.

I don't know if July 19 works for me. Mom and I leave for Europe on the 23rd and I don't know if I want to spend that weekend hauling and cooking and cleaning and packing for BBQ plus coming home and going through the same drill to get everything ready to go a few days later. Don't know if Bent will want to go and compete by himself or not, I will let him answer that one.

July 19 would be spectacular, well positioned for me

The way the ROY competition is going this year, I've got to try and make everything I can just to hang on to a position at the front of the pack...........

I'll try and do everything I can in addition to the big ones. That makes smaller, cheaper events very desirable for me.

Not competing the second day of Stagecoach may have cost you the ROY.

Talk about cheap...you already paid!

Good luck to all in the Rookie Race.

I think we are doing a BBQ seminar for the newbies on July 19th but if its possible I will get out there for the contest. Sounds like fun. I love the smaller, more laid back contests.

Wow! That is dedication, or addiction, or both. :o
Or are you using it as an excuse to escape the heat and head to the Beach? B)
We are planning on doing Fairfield, which is a long haul for us as well. But at least a chance at some prize money to recoup expenses.
My Motorhome only gets around 8mpg towing my smoker, so the cost does add up.
We will probably do this Encinitas one. I will have to look to see if there is any camping spots near by still available so to make a vacation trip out of it, kill two birds with one stone.
Look forward to seeing you.
Bill

Yes to them all. Because of friends and family are in the area is why I will attend this one (if it happens). Shake, Rattle & Roll is gone and Viejas might not happen. I might as well jump into some contest since I only have Fairfield and Clovis left on my schedule.
