Roy Swift, the man behind this event sends.....

Ladies & Gentlemen

From your BBQ freinds at the Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort just outside lovely Poulsbo, WA...
We are so excited to officially announce Grill for a Grand 2012.

This third annual event will be better than ever, $17,000+ in prizes, including $4,000 to the Grand Champion.

We have added new events for Sunday night and managed to lower the entry fee at the same time. We think you will really enjoy some of our improvements to the competition.

Information can be found at the link below.

Also...Roy informed me that there will be a block of rooms set aside for comp teams at a discounted rate...he is not sure what that rate will be at present but assured me it will be a significant savings. Look for the announcement in June or July as the event draws nearer...

Some of us like the fact that you can do Juarez Canyon on Fri-Sat, be home in your own littly beddy-bye Sat night, then over to Poulsbo Sun-Mon on the holiday weekend. That doesn't even qualify as an "Iron Man" weekend, 'cause you're home Sat night. (Truth be told, my wife is in the process of vetoing those plans but that's been MY design since the dates for both events were first published. If you don't see me at Juarez, you'll know who wears the pants 'round here.) She won't miss the Clearwater event 'cause she can go in and play the slots while I cook. (Now, you see why I HAVE to 'walk' there?)
Plus, the less frequently we have head-to-head conflicts between PNWBA and KCBS events, the better off we are, I'm guessing.

There are plenty of options in how to run this particular competition, but I was wondering what has worked best for you the cooks in past competitions. We have discussed providing portion cups and bread or crackers to the teams and giving the public a ticket that they can use to vote for their favorite. Would this work for you as a competitor? Any and all suggestions welcome, but I need to finalize this soon.
thanks -

********************************************
UPDATE

People have been asking about the Magic Ingredient Challenge. The event is being sponsored by Red Hook Beer and we will be using Red Hook Wit beer as the 'magic ingredient'. On Sunday teams that have entered the magic ingredient challenge will be given a six pack of Red Hook Wit beer. You will need to incorporate the beer into your entry (you are welcome to enjoy whatever you don't use in the competition). This will be an open event, you can make soup, use in a bbq sauce, whatever works. We wanted to give you a month or so to work with the beer and find what works best. As of 7/31 there are 5 out of 15 teams entered in this event and it pays thru sixth place on a $5 entry fee.

For those looking for information on the Clearwater website, I apologize we are currently short staffed in our graphics department so there is a delay in getting information uploaded to the website. Please feel free to contact me directly if you have questions.

**************************************************


Look forward to seeing everyone there.

Corree -
You can sample both Sunday and Monday if you like. We are planning on having entertainment and a beer garden both days so there will be some traffic.

OK OK just kidding.
In my county you can renew on-line but must get the basic in person. Check the other county departments of health, Kitsap, Thurston, King, Lewis, Spokane...I would start with those.

DOES ANYBODY KNOW A WASHINGTON STATE COUNTY THAT WILL LET YOU GET YOUR FOOD HANDLER'S PERMIT - FOR THE FIRST TIME - ON-LINE, NOT IN PERSON??

Hey, Pierce IS my home county and I just read your link - that IS a change for them. Glad to see it except now we may have to be nice hosts to Bob - well, the good side is, Merideth is coming so...see, there's a silver lining.
