LETS KEEP THIS 20 YEAR TRADITION ALIVE !!!!!
BBQ-QFests / BBQ Bivouacs (
are overnight social events where
BBQ enthusiasts , families, and friends, get
together, socialize, and bring the BBQ equipment and food necessary to
contribute to potlucks, enjoy camp Fires, and make the weekend special. All to have a weekend of barbecue
food and fun.
Many of the California BBQ Association members also attend and make it
special. New people and folks interested in BBQ may attend as long
as they coordinate that attendance and participation through the
Event Coordinator (me) so we can ensure that all costs are understood
and that appropriate resources are provided to all attendees.
I reserve and pay for all RV spots at East
Shore RV Park (and have for the last 20 years) and
arrange or bring whatever is necessary to
meet our immediate (
firewood, eatware, spots to camp and park) needs. Participants
then reserve RV / Vehicle parking spots, tent spots, or just day
parking and bring food for Potlucks. Coordination and
itemization for all activities are done through me at the following link:
This because I coordinate and pay for all the resources and facilities
at East Shore RV, a year in advance. Thus we obtain the best
spots, fire-pits, and all the facilities we need., :
Participants, CBBQA members and families, bring potluck contributions
to enjoy (and whatever else they need). Non-members and CBBQA guests are charged a fee for both
parking and potlucks to cover the cost of the overall event.
That being equipment, campfires wood, eatware, parking, etc.
have 4 Potluck dinners - Friday dinner, Saturday breakfast, Saturday
and Saturday 2nd dinner (later in the evening around the campfire). And hopefully one or more
seminars are provided on Friday or Saturday (if we get volunteers) on a topic related to meats, foods,
cooking and barbecue. Members
typically bring all tools necessary to perform their volunteered tasks.
That can be a cooker / smoker or any BBQ tools to cook and prepare their potluck
each CBBQA family attending brings a Potluck entrée and/or side dish large enough for 8-10
people, or larger if you want, for each Potluck they participate in.
The Event Coordinator ( me ) list and manages the food dish
entrées through the
so we bring our best, have little duplication,
and everything is coordinated as best we can all do. There are
foods listed which participants can sign up to do/submit, or you can
bring your best, anything you want !!! Just make it your best !!!
BBQ Bivouacs / Q-Fests to be successful and possible many people must volunteer to pitch in and help
(many hands make little work).
Q-Fest tasks and responsibilities cannot be all put on the shoulders of
the coordinator or just a few people. Those bringing meat and
side entrées to the potluck need to prepare, cook/smoke, slice, and
present in foil pans with disposable serving spoons for their submitted products. Many will bring
their portable BBQ smokers (WSM's, Kettles, whatever...) to cook with and get
the meat/sides ready for serving. One or two folks might bring a
large community smoking pit which can be of great assistance.
However, that is never guaranteed and everybody needs to be prepared to
cook and present their own products! Everyone
attending a Q-Fest should be prepared to help out with the work of setup: cooking, preparing, serving tables,
general setup, and it is nice to help supply necessary equipment,
(tables & Ez-Ups), and help with clean-up, etc.
For the last 20 years we have never
had to pay in advance. I could just collect the monies for the RV
reservations upon everybody's arrival, then go and pay. In other words the spots were my responsibility and I
managed to pay and make it all work each year (lol, yes it was
Well, East Shore changed everything this
year. The old management has retired and new management (along
with the owner) now manage directly. I used to reserve the spots a
year in advance and not pay till the event. Now I reserve and pay
upon making the reservations, one year prior. They won't accept any other method.
So, I am out on a limb !!! This year I reserved 12 of our key and
important spots that give us access to all the open areas, parking, fire
pits, and views that we are accustomed to. AND, I will ask that
everybody that makes an RV reservation, that you then send me a check
ASAP directly via U.S. Mail. (as I have already paid in advance). That relieves my
pocket book outlay and makes me feel less stressed !!!
The RV Spot rental fee is $130 for the
entire weekend. Out of that I
will provide RV camping spot (and by the way they are full hookups,
including cable), disposable eatware, firewood, parking (for everybody, not
just the campers), and space for the tenters and areas for our Potluck setup.
Pricing for the events activities is listed on the worksheet.
All RV sites are purchased for the entire 2 day event, not just
for the day. In other words it is a 2 day reservation, Arrival is on
Friday after 14:00 and leaving on Sunday by 12:00 noon.
If a member or guest who reserved an
RV site is unable to attend after reserving and paying for the spot the
monies are NOT refundable. As it is not refundable to me (and I
paid in advance). Tent campers do not need to pay in advance as I
assign and use the spots between our adjacent RV site to provide a
No stress on tenting. CBBQA members and guests arriving on Friday
or Saturday, will pay upon arrival as listed
in the worksheet based upon whatever services or requirements they might
have. That worksheet is located at
Folks camping in a reserved RV
site do not pay a parking fee for
their parking as long a they use their RV spot.
All other attending participants shall pay for parking to attend the Q-Fest,.
CBBQA members and their immediate
family do not pay a food/potluck fee.
All non-participating guests and friends attending will pay to
participate in the potlucks and for parking. Again, these monies
go towards perpetuating this event.
Attendees shall be given a name tag
signifying that they have paid the RV / Potluck / Parking fees. Guests will be given a
name tag signifying that they have paid the parking and food fees. No
one should attend potlucks who does not have a name tag.
To attend, and participate peruse the worksheet located at www.BBQ-Qfest.com
