2014 memorial day bbq cook off

MITCHELL, SD - Thanks go out to those volunteers who worked hard during the Memorial Weekend to participate in the Mitchell Memorial Weekend BBQ cookoff on Mitchell’s Main Street on May 24th.  There were approximately 10 chapter volunteers led by Dave Allen, Joel Franks and Al Hyatt who participated.  We partnered with Cabela’s through Jen Johnston, their Retail Marketing Specialist and our PF volunteer was there to sell raffle tickets for many prizes donated by Cabela’s.  The profits of the day’s raffle, which was approximately $1,000 was given to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.  Our Chapter made BBQ ribs and pork loin which was quickly devoured by the hungry crowd.   When all was said and done, we didn’t win a trophy for the best BBQ by the judges; however, we were given the People’s Choice Award for the 2nd year in a row.  Congrats Dave and Al.
