1st Annual Blues,Brews & BBQ's
Thanks from Brentwood PAL
We are still finishing the weekend today but I wanted to give a special shout out to all the teams who participated in the Blues, Brews & BBQ's. Early revenue counts shows us approaching $70,000 for the weekend. Less expenses it means well over $50,000 to our program.
Words can not begin to express our gratitude. People are already talking about next year.8-)
BTW, we are putting in an order for shirts. Please email me the sizes you want and we'll make sure you get yours.
I just received notification from KCBS that governor Brown has made a blanket proclamation covering all current and future KCBS BBQ contests in California are proclaimed to be STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS!!!!!!!
Thanks to Tracey Allen for her help in getting me the contact inside the Governor's office. Without that contact we could not have gotten this done.
The Entry Fee for the KCBS Sanctioned event on Saturday May 28th is $300.00
The Entry Fee for the Backyard BBQ event on Sunday May 29th is $100.00
An event sponsor provides meat for Backyard event. Yes! we provide the chicken, ribs and tri-tip for Sunday contest!!!
April 30th Kids-Q added! On Friday night we have added a kids bbq contest.
This Contest will be divided into two age groups. We'll have the younger group 10 and under do Hot Dogs and 17 and younger do steaks. I'll get the entry form posted on www.palbbq.com later this evening
Another great day forward for the event. A bunch of team entry forms showed up in the mail and we lined up several more BIG sponsors. To date: Harvest Park Bowl is Super Platinum and sponsor of the Main Stage, Bill Brandt Ford is Platinum and sponsor of the Car Shows, Sierra Nevada Brewery is Gold, Brentwood Fine Meats is Gold, Brentwood Bike Company is Gold, Barbeques Galore Silver and the Delta Rotary Club is Bronze.
This event is growing every single day. Today Extreme Motorsports grabbed a double vendor booth and an entire block of the car show. Lots of adult toys with great big engines.

I can answer any question you have. We have been doing a non-sanctioned BBQ event for ten years. We spent the last year touring other events to make sure we hold a top notch, top caliber, quality event. It has to work for the teams. We are in this for the long haul. We choose the weekend because it did not conflict with anyone else. We want to host an event that everyone wants to come to and come back to for years to come.
