Judges, finally, the KCBS Judging applications for Hogging Up Virginia are up and live on the event forms page! Make sure you read carefully, as we are NOT accepting any emailed applicaitons. Though we love to recycle and hate to kill trees, we do require your John Hancock, and due to an overflow in Apps last year, we had a huge email crash.
You will be notified that we have received it but this may take us up to 2 weeks so please be patient as we travel often.
Add HoggingUpBBQFestival@verizon.net to your safe list.
Application does not guarantee placement.
We will cut off apps early if we obtain a significant overflow.
