OK, now for the Meat of the news.

Each Team who wins one of the Category's, Chicken, Ribs, Pork and Brisket will get those 2 Tickets UPGRADED to a SUITE... HOW AWESOME is that??

110 Electric will be provided, but if you need more, you need to supply your own.  ONLY Quiet Generators will be allowed.

Once again, we will be having a great Appetizer Party on that Friday Night.  This will be one of the biggest Appetizer Parties we have ever had as they are going to invite all of the RVers from the Rally to come join us and compete as well.  A HUGE Thank you goes out to BBQ Island, Swimming in Smoke, Anthony Spices & Green Mountain Grills for agreeing to once again sponsor this great Appetizer Party.  Start planning now on what you will bring.

Good Sam is also sponsoring a Kids Q at this event.  It will be open to all kids 17 & under.  Kids Q is FREE if the parents are competing in the event or $10 if they are not.  I will create a separate topic for this so you can let us know if you will be entering any of your kids in the event.

This is going to be an AMAZING event. and if it goes GREAT like we all know it will, Good Sam will incorporate it into all of their RV Rally's throughout the USA.  That would be HUGE for AZBarbeque, The BCS & BBQ, so come on out, get your team signed up and let's make this an event to remember.

Registration form is attached.

Hey all, hope your BBQ year is off to a good start.

We are just a few short weeks away from this great event.

Let me tell you a little about this event.

Good Sam is the AAA (Triple A) of the RV world.  They also are the parent company of Camping World.

This event is one of their RV shows that they host throughout the Nation.  For years they have been trying to find out how to attract more people to these events and a Younger crowd to these events.  

They met several of our friends out at last March's NASCAR Race & got to talking.  They contacted me and the rest is History.  

We REALLY want to put on a good event & show for them so that they not only have us back again next year, but also have us produce more of these events throughout the nation at many of their other shows.  We need your help to make this a possibility.

The Great People at Good Sam have asked us to have a local charity that is important to us as our "Official" Charity of the event.  We chose the Cure SMA charity as this is one that we have worked with for years and do their annual Walk & Roll event each year.  This group is very close to our hearts and we are excited to have them as a part of this event.  As you know, the Health Department here in Maricopa County is almost impossible to work with for events like this.  We did get a Blanket Health Permit that allows the teams to hand out Samples for FREE.  However, we want to help the SMA raise some money as well as help all of you to recoop some of your money.  So the SMA will be out at the event selling $2/sample tickets. The public will purchase those tickets & then bring them around to the teams for a 2 oz or 1 rib bone sample.  At the end of the event, you will turn your tickets in to the SMA for $1/ticket back.  In order to do this, each team will have to get an $85 Health Permit from the Maricopa County Health Department.  Yes, it's another expense, but with 1000 RVers stuck out there for 3 days smelling BBQ, we all think this will be a great part of the event.  We understand not all of you will do the Sampling, but we do encourage you to if you can.  It will go a long way toward showing Good Sam & PIR that we can support this type of event a well as help out this great Charity.  It's also a great way to interact with the public and showcase your BBQ skills.  http://www.maricopa.gov/EnvSvc/EnvHealth/OnlineForms/TemporaryPermitApplication.aspx

The one thing that sold them on hosting a BBQ Competition was our Famous Friday Night Appetizer Party.  They love the community aspect of this and have really touted it.  We have a lot of great prizes for this, so bring you best dishes and come join us for a fun evening.  There will be entertainment & fireworks both Friday & Saturday nights as well.  

This is an RV Show and they are charging to attend.  The daily cost is $10/person.  Our BBQ area is outside of the main show, so we are not sure if they will require everyone to have a ticket to come to the BBQ.  You can visit http://www.goodsamrvshow.com/ for more info on that.

*****Each team & member will need to stop by the Will Call trailer by Gate 1 as you arrive to pick up your credentials.  Once you do that, the Good Sam & PIR folks will direct you to the BBQ area where myself & my team will be and we will get you set in your space.

Arrival times are as follows:

Thursday, 2/23 Noon - 6 pm
Friday, 2/24 8 am - 6 pm (NOTE:  COOKS meeting is at 5 pm)

Please READ over the info sheet, we recommend printing it out and having it with you.

If you have any questions, e-mail me, call me, post up at http://www.azbarbeque.com/forums/good-sam-bbq-showdown/ or post up at https://www.facebook.com/events/1214935408581326/

Thanks for your support, now let's get ready to BBQ.

P.S. - We still have room for more teams, so please share this on your social media and with your friends.

I talked with the Maricopa County Health Department today & they said we only have 4 teams who have gotten a Health Permit to do samples out at this event.

4 people doing samples will NOT cut it.  Come on all, we are trying to make this a reoccurring event and the only way to do that is to make the sponsor and the public happy.

The entire reason Good Sam is sponsoring this event is that they are trying to give the RVers coming to the show something cool & hip to do.  Just walking around smelling the BBQ isn't what they are looking for.  IF we can't support the event, they won't support us.  If we can step up and help make the event a success, then next time they will just do BBQ Vendors and not a comp.

They have about 1500 RVer's already registered for this event.  That means a lot of people will be coming through our area after smelling this great BBQ all night and they will be looking for Samples.

The Charity is sending out a group to run the ticket sales and they have also been promoting the event.  Please consider doing the samples out there.  It's good for your future business, it's good for our Sponsors, it's good for our Charity, it's good for the Public and it's good for securing this event again in the future.  Green Mountain has donated a Smoker and we have several other prizes donated for the people who buy sample tickets, so they are really committed to making the sampling a success.  Please do your part to make it a success as well.

You HAVE to get your permit by this Friday or the price goes up.  Don't miss out, please step up and let's make this event as good as we can.  The weather is predicted to be amazing, so cook up some BBQ & interact with the public and the folks at PIR and Good Sam & let's see if we can secure more events out at PIR and out at more Good Sam Rallys.  http://www.maricopa.gov/EnvSvc/EnvHealth/OnlineForms/TemporaryPermitApplication.aspx 

Next item, each team will be getting 6 wristbands for the event & 2 parking passes.  If you need more parking passes, just let them know when you check in at the Will Call Trailer as you arrive.  They have your Team name & head cook name.  Check in there, get your credentials & then they will direct you where to go.

Lastly, don't forget about the Appetizer Party on Friday night.  Once again, this is something Good Sam is looking forward to, so let's make it the best one yet.  We have lots of great prizes for the Appetizer party, so don't miss out.

Safe Travels & we will see you all soon.
