Sam's Club 201

6 teams from each local...
I got invited to Vegas last year for finishing 11th overall, and I think the 13th team ended up going in the end. I had already purchased $1300 worth of tri-tip for Morgan Hill, so it was too late to change plans.

I hear you there. Finishing 11th in Sac I figured I had no chance of moving on and forged ahead with my plans for Morgan Hill. Then about a week or so before Vegas I got the email, but my plans were set.
I don't see myself driving 8 hours to hope to make it to drive 18 hours when there is a contest on the same day 15 mins from my house.

I applaud your thoughts but wish you would still compete as it is better to compete against the best and you will be missed.

I waited overnight for all the teams who want to go all the way to get in. Now, I've signed up and will be treating it as a normal KCBS contest that is 2 hours from home. I didn't think so few teams would be signed up. I guess the travel to ABQ combined with 2 contests in CA that weekend has slowed the interest. Whatever the results, I will not move forward and will compete at Long Beach instead.

" The "reps" went on and on about how this was 'competition' bbq and therefore automatically an 8 or 9, with the possible exception of a 7 might be "allowed" for appearance. They didn't explicitly say this, but when somebody makes the statement all of this is going to be an 8 or 9 ten times in the judges meeting, what should we think. And looking back on it, those were my scores matched that, (8 or 9), except I did give a 7 for taste."
Based on last weekend's scores in TX, I'm not sure that those instructions were given at every Sam's contest. My opinion, it would be sad if judges are not allowed (or discouraged) to use the entire range of numbers.
