Smokin at the Run, Miami, OK March 14, 15, &16

I would like to let everyone know about a contest that is striving to become a premier event for the region.    David Qualls and his team at the Buffalo Run Casino are working hard to turn this into a major event.  This event will kick off the barbecue season for the state of Oklahoma.  There are going to be three KCBS sanctioned events on the 15th and 16th.  There will be two 60 team contests going on simultaneously on Saturday, and another contest with unlimited teams on Sunday.  This contest could really grow into something special.  Let’s do our best to help them, and make sure that they have plenty of teams,  and judges.  Cook teams that are interested can download the entry form below.  The entry fee is $250 for one day or $400 for both days.  For those of you who would like to judge this unique contest can follow the link  http://www.buffalorun.com/judges.aspx and fill out the online form.  Judges still needing signatures for their Master Judge can get two on this one weekend.  I attended this contest last year, and it was great.  It was well run, and had a really good location.  I will be attending both days this year so look for me, and come by and say hello.  I will post everything that David provided me below. I am really looking forward to this event, and seeing all of you there.

SMOKIN AT THE RUN SHOOTOUT INFORMATION

The Smokin At The Run Shootout, (The Shootout) will consist of two separate KCBS Sanctioned contests (Flights A & B), held simultaneously on the grounds of Buffalo Run Casino in Miami, Oklahoma.
The Purpose of this contest is two offer two separate contests of a Maximum of 60 teams and each flight will compete for its respective $10,000 purse and the “Shootout” Winners will share an additional $5,000 Shootout Prize Purse.
The Shootout winner is determined by the highest score of the team in each of the 4 meat categories of the Flights, as well as the top 5 highest overall scores of the Flights.
Example: Flight A Chicken 1st Place scores 178.8572 and Flight B Chicken 1st Place scores 179.4400, then Flight B wins the Shootout and the additional Prize Money. The same method applies to the top 5 highest overall scores between both flights.
All teams will enter the contest and a maximum of 120 teams will be accepted into The Shootout.
At The Mandatory Cooks Meeting all entered teams will have their name entered into a hopper and the selection of Flights will be determined by a live drawing. Flight A Will Be Identified as the Blue Turn-In, Flight B Will Be Identified as the Red Turn-In. Each Flight Selection will be alternately designated upon each draw of a team to ensure complete randomness of team drawn and Flight Assigned.
As Each Team is drawn and Flight Assigned, They will receive their Turn-in Boxes which will be numbered and have a Blue Or Red Marking Affixed to each container to designate which turn-in area assigned.
The Turn-In area of Red & Blue will be designated by Signs colored Red or Blue and the location will be announced at the Cooks Meeting as well. Team Spaces will not be separated by Flight which means you may be in Flight A and your neighbor may be in Flight B. The Turn-In area will be within the same proximity for each flight.
The Shootout will be treated as two separate contests which means there will be different sets of KCBS Rep’s, Judges, and Support Staff. We anticipate a large tent in the center of the contest area with Turn-In locations on opposite ends of the tent for the two Flights (Red & Blue). The Tent will be separated by a wall where the judges once assigned will not be allowed to commingle between the two contest judging areas.
In the unlikely event we have less than 80 teams enter, we will cancel one flight and add 100% of the Shootout Purse to the category winners and the top 5 overall Places.
