There will be a 4 meat KCBS competition on Sunday. Possible $5k prize. Motion to approve Friday event & categories and ask for additional info on a possible judging class.

    Redmond event will happen in 2022. It is moving to earlier in the month and they are redesigning the comp & judging area to highlight the BBQ teams. Thinking about BBQ Judging and competition cooks class as well.

    November Membership Meeting Committee- Pat
    We’re basically maxed out in terms of participation and basically full. Finances look good! Response to everything needed has been very positive. Lance has put together a method for paying for dessert auction proceeds with our current website vendor. Allow us to be able to take credit cards for donations.

    Board nominations – Gregg
    No official nominees, but interest has been expressed. He would like to go into the annual meeting with some nominations.

    New Business:

    End of the year awards:

    Eric – latest ToY calculation was sent out to the best 5 2-day cooks. None qualified this year so no official winner. Looking at combining the1 day cook winners for this year only. Board approved that motion.

    Eric – competition and prize purse. $5k for total prize purse between open and championship. Expecting 7 for the championship – no category purse. $3300. $150 PNWBA would need to kick in up to $2900 for the prize purse. Board passed a motion to add funds for our competition prize pool.

    Another casino is interested in holding BBQ comp. Possibly more to come.

    Unfinished Business/Old Business:
    Possible Judging class at Sportman’s show. 15-35 attendees. If it happens, Lance will run.

    Still looking for Charlie Johnson nominees - Jane
    Still looking for Hall of Fame nominations – Jane

    Spring Fair – was discussed, but no formal sanctioning request as of yet.


    The next board meeting will be in-person on November 14, 2021, at 10:00 am following the annual meeting.

    Motion to adjourn the meeting was approved at 7:20 pm.
