'Best of the Best' and 'The Jack' Updates

Post by Bubba-Q » Thu May 15, 2008 10:54 am

I have just received confirmation from the "Best of the Best" contest organizers that the top Canadian teams in 2008 will once again receive a coveted invite to this great contest happening in Georgia this October. I'm still working on the details, but it looks like we will once again be offered 10 spots in the contest, with 5 eligible invitees coming from the east and 5 from the west.

I am also pleased to be able to confirm that the G.C. from the Canadian Open Championship in Barrie, as well as the G.C. of the Ontario BBQ Series will once again each receive an auto entry to the Jack!!!

The criteria for Barrie will remain the same as in years past, with the overall Grand Champion of the cookoff receiving the invitation. However, in order to qualify for the "Jack" in the Ontario BBQ Series, the winner will be
determined by the highest total cumulative score from all three of the events in the series. This is a slight change from last year, as we have fewer venues and events in 2008 at which to determine the season's top performer. Therefore, the total score from all events will contribute towards the crowning of a 'Series Champion'.

As a side note, organizers of the Jack also indicated that they are seriously considering cutting the number of international teams from 20 to 15 in 2009. How this affects qualifying for next season will be determined at a later date

There are three types of people in this world; those who make things happen, those who watch things happen, and those who wonder what happened, which one are you?
