First Registration Period Ends for The Inaugural Sam's Club National BBQ Tour

February 11, 2011
The first registration period for The Inaugural Sam's Club National BBQ Tour has officially closed. Congratulations to the 553 teams who successfully claimed their spots in the 20 local competitions throughout America!

KCBS will now review all registrations to verify appropriate team entries. We will also verify that there are 47 remaining spots to be filled, or determine if there are more (due to duplicate or nonmember registrations during the first sign-up period).

Once that verification has been completed, KCBS will announce the process for a second registration period to fill up the remaining open spots, as well as any necessary rules changes or modifications to the registration process.

Stay tuned and look for that announcement early next week.

Once again, congratulations to all the teams who participated in this inaugural registration process. KCBS thanks each of you for your interest, patience and participation!
Our Best of the Best 700 180 100+
