Looks like a great line up. Got CA this time and WA again. To bad there's no Vegas but at least we get to keep Salt Lake. I would hope that's becouse we make them feel at home and fill up fast.


RE: Sam's Club Tour - Gene - 01-17-2014 04:52 AM

There's a Vegas contest. Region 4, 26 April.


RE: Sam's Club Tour - SoEzzy - 01-17-2014 05:27 AM

The Vegas contest is the Regional Finals, and the top teams from Vegas, go to Bentonville at the end of the year.

--DO IT DO IT... Would love to see you cooking at comps again.


RE: Sam's Club Tour - Mugsy - 01-26-2014 09:51 PM

Need to see Larry and T needs to make an appearance every once in a while, too!

Buried deep within a chat among the prospective teams on the KCBS website, I found out that judges' sign-up is Wed., Jan 29, at 6:00 MT.
