Contest Registration


Not Required to Enter


The contest fee of $150 includes entry in all categories. NOTE: Each team will receive a free shirt or other item.

Friday Night: Kids Q, Booze-B-Que
Saturday: Sausage, Four KCBS Categories, Dessert

The Kids Q is $10 per entrant. We prefer you to pre-register, but kids can also sign up by 5:30PM on Friday.
(A full refund will be provided to teams cancelling by September 30.)
(Electricity may be limited but you will be notified at least 30 days in advance if it cannot be provided. All generators must be approved by contest organizer.)

Because of the lack of participation in previous years, we have decided not to have publicly advertised vending this year. However, we will be asking for teams to volunteer to provide some "leftover" baskets for our sponsors. We will provide a stipend to a limited number of teams that would like to participate. If you are interested in participating in this, please let us know via email.


If you choose to pay now, you'll be redirected to PayPal for payment when you submit the form. If not, please send a check to the John Brown Foundation, PO Box 401, Osawatomie, KS 66064-0401 for a spot to be reserved.
A full refund, less online payment fees, is available until September 30. From October 1 to 17, either a credit for the 2017 event or 1/2 refunds will be provided. No refunds are available after October 17.

Your registration is not complete until payment in full has been made.
