27 contests in 9 states
8 Grand Champions:  Scottsdale, AZ; Rock Springs, AZ; Boulder City, NV; Pueblo, CO; Williams, AZ; Boise, ID; Midwest City, OK; Buckeye, AZ
6 Reserve Grand Champions:  Chandler, AZ; Durango, CO; Vista, CA;

Not pictured:  the priceless memories gained
along the way, spending time with our fellow teams.
    



There they are, our own little lineup of monoliths, the awards for KCBS
Team of the Year categories.  Rhythm 'n QUE finished in 7th place Overall
among a field of over 4000 scored teams, and 10th in chicken, 7th in ribs,
7th in pork and 15th in brisket.  There aren't many teams in the country that
have a matched set of five of these this year, and we're quite proud of ours.

Grand Championship in as many weeks, RnQ was all wet!  More here.
