    Barbeque at JTS

    anyone else think it would be interesting to have live music,beer and barbeque at JTS parking lot. also hold fundraising for university programs.

    cookoff competition mix of companies local and neighboring states
    followed by a vote. personally if Lynch BBQ showed would probably win jmo. though Battles makes some good food too. sure I am missing a good number or companies too.

    similar to Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival BBQ roundup.

    dont remember what game it was but it was either radio or tv commentators talking about JTS and the environment and BBQ nothing else quite like it in the northern states but pretty popular in the south.

    or am I out of touch with Ames and they have something like this though its best kept secret?

    It would be great if they could do something like that in conjunction with a fan appreciation day event like they had last August. Basically tailgating but with the fan apprecation event in the practice facility instead of a game.

    It would be a lot of fun.

    These things get started with a small group getting together one or two years and then more and more people start to come and then all of a sudden it's a yearly big name thing. Somebody just needs to hold the first "BBQ competition" with some local contestants... and who knows, 5 years down the road it could be huge.

    If there is fundraising for ISU, then you need to make sure you dont break any rules. That would be my only concern. Otherwise, good thought.

    Love the idea. Really - could be a ton of fun!

    They could tack this onto the spring game - make it quite the environment. :)

    Absolutely great idea! Use the parking lot for something productive other than football season tailgating. It could be a great event.

    Great idea ISUFan22! I want to make more of a big deal out of the spring game. I have never been able to get to one because people seem to get married at that time or the game is around Easter. I think the 2007 spring game will have a bit more buzz about it.

    MrApathy...

    Have you suggested this to Pollard? If not, being it was your idea - care to write something "formal" up to send him? If you like, feel free to post it here to get our ideas.

    I really like this idea. IMO, it would be very unique and a TON of fun!

    Re: Barbeque at JTS

    I have yet to email pollard.

    if this interest you I would advise all to write a nice letter and send it out to Pollard and other people that have potential to make this happen.

    my english skills are lousy otherwise I would have written sooner.
    working on a draft.

    not crazy on credit be nice but its not a totally original idea.

    Re: Barbeque at JTS

    got a reply telling me about the clone zone. I park right across from the clone zone. dont think the message got through. bet the BBQ roundup cost good chunk of change to them get to come to town. wonder just what trouble it is to have something done not during a game in Ames and how many would show up.

    was worth a shot. my pockets will thank me when it doesnt happen

    But if your idea becomes reality, I'm afraid you'd have to change your screen name!
