Memphis in May Update

The big day is here. It’s Wednesday, and tonight marks the opening of the Memphis in May World Championship BBQ Cooking Contest. Wednesday is friends and family night. No public admission tonight. We get to feed our friends and family and get ready for the real big day tomorrow, which marks the first public open day of the festival. We spent the last few days getting things loaded in, and yesterday we got the rest of the tents set up:

Then we got a special delivery:

That one on the left is full of meat. Needless to say, that was a bit challenging getting unloaded. Many thanks to Shane for picking everything up and delivering it out to us. Finally, we got one of the most important bits set up in our tent… The bar:

We look forward to seeing everyone who is coming down to visit us. Not longer to go till we open. Now it’s time for me to get up, and head down to the park, so I can help with the last bits of set up.

I have a gut feeling your going to pull off a big win this year round. ” Go team, go ! “

I’m looking forward to finally getting down to the BBQ Fest.

We’ve already got a couple of tents to visit but we will definitely stop by Friday night to introduce ourselves.

Good luck!!
