Sorry you feel that way. Only 3 registered thus far so you should be paying the lower tier.

Definitely a different approach.
Being basic services vs. all inclusive, they handlw registration fees instead of PNWBA. I can only coach them but they're free to do what they think is in the best interest of their event.

I was interested in doing this event this year, really friendly hosts from what I remember from 2014 when it was a backyard event. This cost structure is making me think twice though, even the early bird is $10 more than last year.

It might be a tough draw given there is another bigger event the same weekend.

We plan on doing this one. Appreciate all the "local" events, and would love to seem them keep going (most effective way to do this is to enter/cook them, I imagine).

The tiered steup/cost is a little different, but won't deter us from entering (we do plan to register before it gets too out of hand...$210???).

I'm going to approach them (again) and ask that they follow a more "traditional" tiered setup.

X dollars until a certain date, then Y dollars thereafter.

Will keep you posted.

Interesting. Still less than KCBS entries of $200 and up.

True...and there will be plenty of room for folks chasing TOY. I doubt very seriously this event will draw 25 teams to become a Jack or Royal qualifer for folks chasing bungs at those prices...especially for a $3500.00 purse...

Would that be the 5k Florence or the 13000k Coos Bay or the 10000k Sam's club events you are referring to? You are comparing Apples and Oranges

How about the any $2500-4000 KCBS events across the country?


I am sure those are the one Eric was referring too

[br]See you all there!


or not!





Brian, I hope so. We had a good time last year!

Enjoyed an event close enough to home that the entire gang could join us for turn ins/awards.

When we first started out it seemed like ther were several one-day events (lite cooks) that overlapped bigger two-day events. Since all I hear is that "no one wants to sponsor lite cooks" this type of event is, in my opinion, the next best thing.

Perhaps some teams may enter to "chase TOY"...and if they do maybe it will encourage a few other to enter, and join the chase.

On the other hand, perhaps this is a bit of unfortunate timing. Whistler is the bigger, more established, event. Perhaps the tradition, and the bigger prize pool, will be too much competition for this event (the real reason, JD, I think why there might not be 25 teams).

While there may be some KCBS events with a higher entry fee (and the same or smaller payout), this tiered system/cost is just not the norm here in the PNWBA. Even the early entrants are paying more than other events with a much higher prize pool. Perhaps, going forward, this could be adjusted for this one.

We do plan to cook this event (to repeat the earlier post; feel it's important to support the events closest to home). We will, however, try to register before the entry fee gets too out of hand. We are choosing to enter this one based on our own particular circumstances, and how we evaluate contests (cost, distance, time involved etc.). While it works for us, it may not work for everybody. Different strokes for different folks, after all...

Chris, thanks for working with these folks again this year (despite what looks to become much of the same conversation that was had last year surrounding this event). Looking forward to seeing you in Puyallup.

Well said there are more costs than simply entry fees to consider.

It was a well done event last year from PNWBA rep to hosts and in a good location for western WA and Oregon teams. Unfortunately, the event is on the same weekend as Whistler with the bigger prize fund.

I agree the tiered system is strange but even at the last tier entry fees of $210 is not some "crazy" expensive price and less than KCBS events in the area typically go for. It is comparable as prize money has little to do with costs of putting on and hosting a BBQ event.

Todd - you can register with the organizer at: http://www.barbageddon.com/bbq-registration.html

I don't know if you can pay cash at the door - you'd have to work that out with them.

Interesting case study with this event on how timing and location can really drive attendance. It was a great event last year but I am personally shocked how fast this filled. It goes to show many factors involved in filling an event.

Location, location, location!

I'm surprised how much it has grown this year, too. Gotta figure that 1 hour south of Seattle vs 5+ hours north of Seattle gives it a big advantage over Whistler.

I don't think Whister is much of a factor. If you look at the team list for Whistler last year and Puyallup this year there is hardly any overlap. (I think only 1 team) Most of the field last year was Canadian.

The Whistler Prize Package is $7K CDN = $5388.35 US with a $99 entry fee + $50 cleaning deposit, but where else can you have bears wander through the site???
