Colorado Pork & Hops Challenge- Grand Junction
Hello Everyone...Kevin Andrus here, the main event organizer for the Colorado Pork & Hops Challenge- September 9th, 10th and 11th in Grand Junction. Just a few things to update you on:
We have added more money to the pot this year- $20,500 is cash and over $3,000 in prizes.
By request, we have brought back the Free Wine Tour on Thursday (Sept. 9th) for teams. I understand that several people cannot make the tour on Thursday, but that is the only time we could squeeze it in. If you are able to join us, don't be late. Bus leaves at 3pm. We will start parking competition teams in the park on Thursday.
Pork and Hops has added a Thursday Night Micro Brew sampling event for the general public and a couple of bands on the main stage to get everyone warmed up for the main event...BBQ! If you don't wish to join in the festivities, teams will be in the same area as last year away from the noise and you can relax as you wish.
The Anything But competition on Friday Night has always been big, but this year we are offering our biggest prize yet...a 46", $2100 Mitsubishi HDTV! Winner take all.
We have also added a BBQ Sampling event on Saturday for the public. We give each team who wishes to participate 2 Pork Butts at no charge. You cook them and WE serve them and track the publics favorite. There will be a $500 prize for the winner of the 'People's Choice"!
If you wish to stay for Saturday night, the Music Group Diamond Rio is closing the event.
For those teams wanting to stay in a Hotel, please check our website at <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.porkandhops.com">http://www.porkandhops.com</a><!-- m --> for event hotels. Ask for the Pork & Hops rate. We have worked hard to try and get you the very best rate available.
On behalf of myself, Arlie Bragg and the city of Grand Junction, we look forward to seeing all of our friends from Utah and making many new ones! If you've not been to Pork & Hops before, I hope you seriously consider making the trip and entering a great contest while there is still room.
All the best, Kevin Andrus
