2010 Participant Comments:
-We go all over for these competitions and always have a good time, but this one is a lot better because you’re not just competing somewhere like Stage Coach, you’re competing and part of something bigger by raising money for the kids.
-We hope this moves to a bigger venue, that way more people can come in to compete and we think this is going to grow into one of the largest competitions nationally.
-When we signed up to do this event last year we were a little uncertain with it being in its first year and it was our favorite one of the year, then we came back this year and it’s even better. They really moved at light speed to make changes in 1 year that normally people take 2-3 years to change.
-No matter what, we truly hope that you’ll let us come back next year to sell and compete (Montana BBQ)
-One of the great things about this event is that you get a large crowd coming to it, it’s not like this was part of a festival where most people are there for the festival and not to support a community event.
-All of the organizers and volunteers were very helpful and cheerful, and that was even at the end of the event when everyone was just worn out; we’ll definitely be back next year.
