Great news! The Walton County BBQ Festival has been named the Premier Contest for North Georgia for the 2015-16 season by the Georgia BBQ Association.
The GBA selected our contest to award double points towards the Team of the Year standings. GBA teams are recognized not only for their placement in each contest, but also collect points based on their participation and placement in contests throughout the year. The 10 teams with the most points at the end of the season are recognized at the annual GBA banquet with banners and prize money.
The GBA expects these designated contests will have lots of additional teams participating because they will want to make sure to collect those double points, which may have a big impact on the final standings.
The individual contests were selected for various reasons, but "yours was chosen because we wanted to reward you for the fantastic job you did last year and to showcase it as an example of how good a GBA contest can be," according to GBA officials.
Our 2016 festival will be March 12. Follow us here on Facebook and at our website at www.wcbbq.com to get the first chance to register when it opens!
