President Message – January 2015
Exciting Year Ahead for the FBA
FBA Presidents Message
by Ed Hartwig, President Florida Bar B Que Association
I want to wish everyone a very Happy New Year. We have a lot of very good and exciting things about to take place in the FBA during the next year.
First of all, we are introducing our new scoring system this month. It will be a web based system with new software but retaining the same math model of our old system.
We are also finishing the development of our new web site which will be a dramatic improvement over our current web site.
, We continue to have strong support from our organizers who continue to sanction contests throughout the year.
Finally let me conclude by announcing that the FBA has entered into a partnership with Sonnys BBQ (www.sonnysbbq.com <http://www.sonnysbbq.com> ) to organize and sanction the first Sonny’s Smokin’ Showdown Invitational which will be held Jan. 29 – 30, 2016. This is going to be truly exciting for many reasons, including a guaranteed total purse of $68,000.00. The FBA will be writing more about this tremendous contest in next month’s issue of the National Barbecue News. Stay tuned to find out more about the venue, the details of the contest and who is being invited.
See you all soon on the circuit.
