2022 Clearwater Casino Grillfest

Registration Deadline - November 6th, 2022

This is a new competition that is open to all teams. The competition will be held in the excellent facilities of the Clearwater's RV Park that is fully paved RV stalls, each equipped with water, electricity, Wi-Fi and sewer. We'll site two teams per stall. So, your footprint can be as large as 20x20.

This will be a Jack qualifier if we have at least 25 teams turning in ALL entries.


This year PNWBA will be creating a separate recognition called the "2022 PNWBA Grand Champion" and will award a banner based on the following:

  • Team won GC at a 2022 PNWBA Sanctioned (3 or 4 meat) Event or is a Canadian Team that has GC'd in a 2021 or 2022 PNWBA Sanctioned event .  This will be defined as a "Championship Team".
  • The Championship Team must compete in this 2022 Clearwater Casino Grillfest Event.
  • Championship Team that earned the highest score from among the GCs entered in the 2022 Grillfest will earn the title of "2022 PNWBA Grand Champion" regardless of finishing position in the overall competition.
