CBBQA Winter Q-Fest
By Bill Wight,


Winter Q-Fest -- January 24-26, 2003 at San Dimas - East Shore RV park

PhotoThe cbbqa will hold its Winter Q-Fest and annual business meeting on the weekend of January 25, 2003 at the East Shore RV Park (on Lake Puddingstone) in San Dimas.  This is a nice site for a family weekend and barbecue festival, with trees and lawns, plenty of room for overnight camping (RVs and tents), hot showers and clean restrooms. 

Tom Chilton, (661) 478-3274 (evenings) is the Q-Fest Event Coordinator.

QFest contribution by Bristol Farms

Bristol Farms -- an extraordinary food store -- has once again made a major contribution to the Association.  Bristol Farms is an official sponsor of the Association's competition teams, Out of This World and Dueling Bubbas

Out of This World and Dueling Bubbas both compete with Bristol Farms' beef, pork and chicken, and together these two teams won every barbecue category in the 2001 Team of the Year contest.

In order to assist the Association in its mission of helping needy children, Bristol Farms has made a major contribution to the Association by providing all the tri-tip for the Friday dinner and all the tri-tip for the barbecue at the Saturday picnic.

The Association will invite several Bristol Farms representatives and their families and friends to the QFest. 

The Association urges its members to show their appreciation by telling their friends about Bristol Farms.

[to be scheduled]


QFests are not intended to make a profit for the Association, but they cannot result in a significant loss.  Therefore, guests are asked to bring side dishes and to help with the QFest -- they must contact the organizers to coordinate what they will be bringing and what help they will give during the QFest.  In this case, members and their immediate families will not be charged for the Friday dinner, Saturday breakfast and picnic, seminars and other events.  Nonmembers will be asked to make a contribution to defray the costs of dinner and the picnic.

The cost for camping and parking for all guests are as follows:

  • For RVs, $40.00 per night, flat fee (Friday and/or Saturday night) and $5 per extra vehicle
  • For tents. $10.00 per night, flat fee (Friday and/or Saturday night) and $5 per extra vehicle
  • For parking (on Saturday by those who do not stay Friday night), $5.00 per vehicle.

Do not pay the gatekeeper -- the cbbqa representative, will handle the collection and payment of fees.  These fees have been allocated so that the Association will have no net profit or loss for the campground venue. 

Volunteers needed

Members and friends are asked to confirm their attendance to volunteer to help cook, to bring a side dish, or to help with the setup and cleanup.  RVers and campers must call to confirm, so that there is enough space reserved for all.

Reservations required

A list of everyone who has confirmed their attendance and a list of what each person is bringing is on a related checklist page

Anyone who plans to attend should email Tom Chilton or call (661) 478-3274 (evenings) to confirm your attendance, to bring a side dish, and to volunteer to help.
