The Iowa BBQ society meeting was tuesday, we talked about it some, they did not give any indication they were getting full so I would say if they cashed your check your in. They are gonna open up at 8 am for the teams this year to avoid the hassle with parking and setting up amongst the spectators and such, they also got much more space so it won't be so tight getting in and out for the teams with mega rigs and big trailers.
The webmaster for the IA bbq society just died so its been a bit of a mess on the homepage, its getting worked out but I know that ain't much help to someone looking for info now.
I don't know the name of the lady helping organize it but you can get ahold of Anne, she can direct you to the right lady I am sure. Anne at 515-223-2622 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
This is only there second year of being sanctioned so everyone is hoping its a little smoother, there was definetely a improvement from the first non sanctioned year to last year and that is just speaking as a walking around goonie ball as the judges fill up fast for VJ.
Is Woodchunks your team name? I'll have to keep an eye out for ya.
