"COOKING FOR KIDS" The 2023 CAMP KOREY BBQ CHALLENGE
IN Near Conway, WA
Sept 22-24, 2023
Registration Deadline: Aug 31st, 2023
Team Limit -
34 36 Teams.
Waitlist: A waitlist will be available, where teams will be added based on the wait list order, in the event that the field is expanded or in the case a team needs to drop out due to emergency. We encourage teams to sign up to the wait list that will want to compete.
A PNWBA sanctioned, traditional, 4-meat competition, this is a CHARITY EVENT to raise funds for the unique, kids’ camp and our role is a 6-hour day of vending to the public on Saturday. Different, this year, is that competition meats will not be provided. Rather, Saturday vending foods will be! All teams will perform a day of public vending to qualify for the competition. You’ll have a say in what you are supplied with for vending and to see more details on how to do that, visit the separate Event Website link in the confirmation email after registering.
Additionally, CAMP LODGING will be available Friday and Saturday nights for most of our competing teams for a housekeeping fee of $75 for the weekend. With our increased team limit, this year, there may not be sufficient rooms for all. So, we’ll assign available lodging on a first come basis, based on the order of registrations. We HIGHLY encourage those with RVs to consider in-site camping. Sites will measure 20 ft by 30 ft (or a little longer if needed). For additional information on this and other topics, again, visit the separate Event Website link in the confirmation email after registering.

Last year, they arrived Saturday about 11am.
Additionally, the local Fire Marshalls may inspect, checking fire extinguishers, canopy fire retardancy labels, flame producing devices out from under canopies and other common fire prevention standards. Their visits are also unannounced.
