Hello everyone, I am a dealer in Kansas City and have been talking with BGE and my distributer about putting on a eggfest. I have approval from both. Now I need your help. How many would be interested in coming to a eggfest in KC,MO. What ideas do you have, do we need to serve alcohol. We haven't set the date yet, but input would be nice, May or June?

Thanks for yuor input in advance and
Have A Merry Christmas!!!

    I think alcohol is mandatory :evil:
    Check the dates of existing fests and you'll draw a bigger crowd if you can fill in a gap. Good luck.

    We would interested. The kids would want the host hotel to be The Great Wolf lodge though.
  • Great idea Larry! Lots of eggheads in the KC metro area!

    I vote June...I'm on a one a month schedule. Already gonna try to get to North Carolina in May, and since the world revolves around me....? :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    Yeah, I think 5 hour drive would be dang easy for an Eggfest. Totally worth it!

    Oh, and the alcohol is a good idea. I've never been to an Eggfest so there are no ideas here. Sorry. :blush:
  • I'm in STL and might consider an Eggfest. Not sure what month would be good, but suds is never a bad idea.
  • Heh, as would mine. We make a pilgrimage there once a year, usually.

    We are about 4 hours away, and it sounds like a good time. Is this a kid friendly event?

    I talked to Mike today about your fest, recommended you get a date and a banner ad up as soon as possible if you want out of towners to attend. -RP

    KC Eggfest would be great! My daughter lives in the metro area and I'm only a 2 1/2 hr drive away.
    IMHO . . . I wouldn't be concerned about the sponser serving "adult beverages" as might raise a liability question. (I could be wrong though)
    Great idea and I hope it works out!
  • Hey Larry,
    It is not necessary you serve the alcohol. Most eggfests, it is BYOB. The location should be friendly to our thrists cooking bbq for a ton of people. :ohmy:
    Let me know what else I can do to help.

  • I would love to go to an Eggfest in the midwest. As a teacher, I'd selfishly vote for late June when I'm off. I have family out that way, so it would be nice to kill two birds with one stone.
  • I vote yes. the OKC fest is in April, Springfield Mo, is in Sept, I think the may/ June time would be about right for that area.

    KC would be great and I would be interested. Any date will work for me.
