Press Release

Azusa, Ca. 1/13/05
When we got word that Follows Camp, site of the California State BBQ Championship contest "Go for the Gold" had been wiped out completely by raging flood waters and 200 residents and campers were stranded, "those are our friends, we have to help". Todd Eves of the California Barbeque Association (CBBQA) sent word to the members on the internet that help was needed. We did what we do best, get them food.
Immediately, generous donations of food & money were received from many members with some as far away as Kansas City, Mo. Loaded with a truck full of food & supplies, Todd, Joe Miles & Randy Gille headed up to the site early this morning to deliver food for the stranded residents & campers.  We got the food and supplies to them over a jury rigged pulley system, over a 75' area of swollen East Fork of the San Gabriel River.  We could not believe what we saw up there, the camp is gone. It was unbelievable.

The CBBQA has been holding contest here for years. This is a very special place to everyone in the barbeque world here in California.

Everyone was so grateful and sent their thanks and blessings to all the members of the CBBQA that took this upon themselves to act now, even ahead of the state supplied aid.

We will be back Saturday, maybe we can send them over some BBQ.

The above pictures, taken by NBC, are self-explanatory, especially if you were familiar with Follows Camp.
However, to put it in proportion, the road on the upper two left pictures, the thin white stripe above the river, is twice the width that the river is normally.  The river is typically 10 - 20 feet in width and about knee height on a child..
