Dutch Oven Cookoff
Hello, This is Arlie Bragg, I run cooking events across the nation, most being bbq cookoffs. I do run a cookoff in Mesquite with $40,000 in prize money. They asked me to start a DO Cookoff and I asked Omar to help me so we all have a worlds class event there. He has been a great help getting this started and I will look to him for more guidence! They have agreed to put up $5000.00 in money plus trophies and I am working on other items too. With that said we are also looking at doing another DO in Nov. 2011 with 10K in prize money. I believe doubling the highest paid DO purse to date. However to do that we need a really good turnout in January of 30+ teams paying to enter the cookoff. I am working on a reasonalbe entry fee! As stated we want 30 teams cooking, 15 will advance to finals the 2nd day with the oher 15+ moving on to a two pot cookoff for prizes. We need 30+ teams cooking both days to fill space. This is a huge parking lot. If this happens then get ready for the 10K if all works out and all the teams that attend this one will be given first choice to get in the 10K event. I have seen the possible names posted here and will all respect to the DO World Chapionships we will name ours the National or World Richest DO Cookoff. I along with Omar are finishing up the finals details to get them to you along with a entry forms next week with room artes etc.......... If you have more questions you can post here or email me at <!-- e --><a href="mailto:arlieque@comcast.net">arlieque@comcast.net</a><!-- e -->. I lookward to meeting all the great dutch oven cooks along this trail to Mesquite in Jan. on the 7th and 8th, 2011. The event will be in Mesquite, NV at the Casablanca Resort and Casino.
Thanks

Arlie --Bragg

Your welcome. Apparently some folks are having a hard time getting the application due to a link problem on the internet, so I hoped maybe this would help.
You guys are doing an awesome job with this and I wish you all the luck!
I just wish I could go. Sad
