$100,000 Jackpot Cook-off in Las Vegas
Sweet...

I heard a rumor of a $100,000 payout in Las Vegas for 2009 and found basic information on the KCBS.us website.

It will be happening as a sanctioned event with a fabulous payout. Leave it to Las Vegas to come up with that amount of money. I hope for a lot of 'bling', also...

03/14/09 to 03/15/09
$100,000 Jackpot Cook-Off Las Vegas/Orleans Hotel & Casino, NV
STATE CHAMPIONSHIP
Contact: Lester Barney, 3960 Howard Hughes Parkway, Ste 500, Las Vegas, NV 89169.
Phone: 702-990-3577. Fax: 702-990-3501 or <!-- e --><a href="mailto:marqueeventures@gmail.com">marqueeventures@gmail.com</a><!-- e -->

KCBS Reps: KELLY MCINTOSH, KATHLEEN MCINTOSH

This will be a great cook-off and start to the season, before the Rio Rancho event two weeks later.

WOW... Higher than normal entry fees on this one with an e-mail I just received;

"Absolutely... it is and open event, meaning anyone can compete. The entry fees are $350-$500 and Celebrity Row $1,000. All fees should be made out to MARQUEEVENTURES LLC and mailed to Marquee Ventures 3960 Howard Hughes Parkway Suite 500 Las Vegas NV 89169 attn: Lester Smith. More info on the website in a few"

Start saving for this one.

Most likely this contest will be happening in the fall of 2009...not the dates on the KCBS website. Just cooked next to the organizer this past weekend.

According to the info on the BBQ Brethren site there is a possibility of a date change to the Fall.

So perhaps not everything is set in stone yet?

Re: $100,000 Jackpot Cook-off in Las Vegas
By the middle of next week we should have our answer on the Spring date
There is a tie in event we are trying to line up with
If that is a no go We are going to the Fall

Our original plan was set then our money Guy
brought in another MONEY GUY
who said he wanted in but felt the event was
too small as it was then
So BIGGER it will be
