The venue for this event has a rich, wonderful and fun 25 year history!

Check out the website for more 4th celebration event information!........http://www.ranchocordovajuly4th.com/

It really is a great family event for the 4th holiday, including a parade, fireworks, carnival & activities for kids of all ages, beer gardens, and many live bands both day and night, and don't forget the venue is on the river with all of the activities it provides!

Please come and enjoy Rancho Cordova's biggest celebration, and one that is PROUD to add a KCBS sanctioned BBQ Championship!
:thumbsup:

Hey Donna,

I saw your post regarding Kidz Que and wanted to let you know that we have partnered with EZ-Grill and will be hosting a Kidz Que at our event. Cash prizes and trophies will be awarded to our winners and participation medals will be awarded to all our young competitors. And to quote Tracy, "It really is a great family event for the 4th holiday, including a parade, fireworks, carnival & activities for kids of all ages, beer gardens, and many live bands both day and night, and don't forget the venue is on the river with all of the activities it provides!"

Penn Valley will also be hosting a Kid's Que.

As soon as we tie up a few more things we will be on line with all the wonderful events we have planned. Stay tuned.

Last year we went to Williams Az for the 4th of July comp. Might have to stay in state and head north this year, this looks like it will be a good one. Location looks nice.

Any issue with needing a large space?

Bill, it would be great to have the Keyes family celebrate the 4th with us.

Plenty of space.

The EZ-Grill is a great little product and will be a good way to equalize the field. We cooked on one last year at the GAB. We were given some to bring home but the grills never left KCI. Flamables are not allowed on planes.

We have money burning a whole in my pocket. Would love to send it to the promoters of this event. Any idea when registration will be up? So many plans, so little time! :whistle:

What is the likelihood that this will be a ToY event? I've got some planning to do.

Just a couple logistic questions. How long are the teams required to do PC on Mon to recieve the waiver of HD fee for Sun PC. Will there be parking in cook site or on an adjacent lot? Are dogs allowed in the park?

I'm sure dogs will be allowed if anyone is doing Korean style BBQ
