Important... You must be logged into this website with your email and password in order to access the registration for the event.

At this time, we are planning on 3 judging tables, but will be adjusted based on updated team count. 

We are looking for the following:

• 12 Judges. Judges will be selected with preference for PNWBA Certified BBQ Judges with current membership. If you are not a PNWBA CBJ but are a KCBS CBJ, then you may be placed in a volunteer position or moved to a wait list as PNWBA CBJ's are given preference. 

• 2 Table Captains. Preference will be to certified as Table Captains.

• 2-3 Volunteers, i.e. Food Runners, Meat Wranglers, and general helpers.

Due to the fluid nature of this event, signing up does not guarantee a judging spot. Please be willing to volunteer as needed. Should there be a reduction in judges needed, an email will be sent to see if you would wish to volunteer.

The head judges will make the final assessment of volunteers and choose the seated judges. Tables will also be adjusted by the Head Judges at the event to try and even out the judge levels and experience.


Please sign up for the waitlist if initial spots are full and we need to expand to a 4th table. We had to use several folks from the waitlist for our past events.

Covid Restrictions:

At this time, on April 1st, 2022, Canada will be removing the requirement for covid testing prior to entry for travelers who are fully vaccinated (boosters not required). Fully vaccinated travelers may still be selected at random to take a test upon entry to Canada but will no longer be required to quarantine while awaiting their results. In addition, Canada indicated that all travelers will continue to be required to complete the ArriveCAN questionnaire online or through the mobile app before entry to Canada.
