DoRagQ Update!

Damn!  Where does the time go?  Seems like only yesterday we were treadin water here in Music City & now it's almost "Football time in Tennessee"!  Time does fly when you are having fun.  Thought I would summarize what's been happenin with DoRagQ since early May.  My last entry told about our good fortune in Pell City Alabama. Since Pell City we have competed in Lawrenceburg, TN, Clarksville, TN, McMinnville, TN, & Kuttawa, KY.  We had some good contests & some not so good contests but overall we have been pleased with our results.  Check it out!

We are please for the most part with our finishes.  We would have liked to have done better but hell we could have done a lot worse!  So far this year we have posted 7 category wins in 10 contest!  Nothing to complain about there.  We still have 7 contests remaining who knows we may get lucky again!

I want to congratulate our good friends Jen & Dan of "The Long Dawgs" for winning 2 Grand Championships & placing 1st in Pork at the Sam's Club Invitational.  They have really stepped up their game this year.  Also sending "congrats" out to High on the Hawg!  Brenda & Terry won their first ever Grand Championship recently at "Smokin in McMinnville" in McMinnville, TN.  It was really a special day & we are so glad we were there to share it with them.

As I mentioned, we have a busy schedule to finish out the year.  Check out our schedule below.  I hope you can stop by for a visit if you are in the area.
