Fire Water and Ice, Kearns Olympic Oval 08/07/09 - 08/08/09
One of the items to come out of General Meeting was the Fire, Water and Ice competition.

There are basically three options for what we can do with it this year, and the board would like the input from everyone as to how the association wishes to proceed.

Option 1) Not hold a competition at Fire Water and Ice this year, but go for a fully sanctioned KCBS competition at next years event, run by the Utah BBQ Association!

Option 2) Hold a competition, but the prize money will be taken out of the entry fee's, after the associations costs are met, this will return 80% to the winners of each category down to 7th place, and the reserve and grand champion.

Option 3) Hold the competition, and try for additional sponsorship, the prize money may not be know until right before the event, (it would include the 80% of the entry fees), plus sponsorship articles that may be cash, gift certificates or other goods (dependent upon what sponsorship we can gain).

If the competition is voted for, the entry fee is being looked at as around $125.00 / team, there will be a pot luck at 7.00 on the Friday night, everybody in good standing in the association is welcome, if you want to come and eat, please bring enough food for 8 - 10 serving portions for your contribution to the pot luck!

If this doesn't read clearly for the options or the poll, please email or pm me alternate wording, and if it makes more sense, I'll use your wording, if it doesn't make more sense... draw you own conclusion! :wink:

Will you post the names of those that aren't in good standing so they know not to attend? Smile...

Yes there will be postings about that of course, so there will be no confusion over the matter!

Forgive my ignorance, I thought Fire, water and Ice was around the first week or so of August and Rock and Ribs Aug 21-22.

Doug, I thought it was the 14th 15th. but was corrected...... FWI is planned for the 7th and 8th of Aug. Dave, the members in good standing means paid membership to the association. Bottom line is, if you are a paid member of the Association and wish to attend the pot luck you need to bring a dish to pass. Members in good standing know who they are, I don't see a need for a list :roll: :roll:

I corrected the date... I had it down as July, not August, it is August 7th and 8th!

Ah shucks, our last couple of weeks stateside & I get to work swings M-F. Doubt Skinny Boys would cook, but Brenda & I will be willing to judge if it comes to fruition.

This was one that the family really enjoyed going to.
I like the fact that they had something to do while I cooked.
My opinion, take the small amount of prize money and buy nice trophies. The small amount of prize money that we would get wont even pay for the gas down there but the trophy would sit on the shelf forever.
My 2 cents worth.

I don't think the small payout should be a deterrent. For the Utah teams to have a comp in your back yard and have invested less than $400. Now don't get me wrong I know times are tough, and RnR is coming up too. I just dont think the low pay out is the issue here

Sorry Dave,
I did not mean to imply that the prize money was low (I don't even know what it is!). I was just saying that a nice trophy would would be cool. I received a $50 check at one event, no $1 ribbon, no $1 certificate, nothing else, just a check. I ended up putting it in the truck for gas. Now There is nothing left to show that I had ever won an award. Thats all I meant. We go to a lot of trouble and expense to compete, so I thought it would be nice to have something to hang on the wall to brag about when we are 90 years old.

Dave, my comment about the list was an attempt to be funny, hence the smile after my comment. I thought it was funny that Chris said in good standing as opposed to current members or something like that. When I read in bold "members in good standing" I pictured in my mind the "bad members" that need to be punished and so they are banned from the potluck (that will teach them). Again this post is sarcasm just like the last one was...
