Samís Tour 24-Hour Update

Share this article:
January 9, 2015

We’re now officially past the 24-mark since the 2015 Sam’s Club National BBQ Tour opened for registration. Right at 24-hours, the tour had 678 teams registered.  

Several teams are still on waitlists. While we understand choosing a contest due to proximity, if you’re more flexible in your travels – and are eager to throw your name in the hat for the big prize – we suggest looking in to some of the available local events to guarantee your spot in the tournament right now. Click here to view available spots. 

If there are spots still available by Jan. 16, we will hold a secondary registration beginning Jan. 21 for teams to opt in to competing in more than one local event. Please note, while your team may then be able to compete in multiple local events, you can only advance to compete in a single regional event.

Get ready! The tour kicks off on Feb. 21 in Kissimmee, FL and it’s sure to be the best year yet!
