Egg Fest

edited 5:27AM in EggHead Forum
I talked to my local dealer about an Egg fest here in Columbia SC.
They are so into selling gassers and fireplaces that they have no interest.
I wish someone would do one here in South Carolina.[p]Jerry

    Jwirlwind,[p]I would not let that stop you. If I was in your shoes, I'd cut a deal with the folks in Atlanta to sell Demo Eggs at a very good price to attendees and then see what it would take to deliver them.[p]You then can organize it without the local dealer. After he sees what he is missing, perhaps he might want to participate next time.[p]Drop me an email if you'd like more ideas.[p]Cheers,[p]GrillMeister

  • Jwirlwind,
    The Florida fest egg supplier was in Florence, Al.
    which is a long way from Ocala. Maybe another dealer would be interested. Why not ask here on the forum?

    Jwirlwind, talk with BGE HQ and find the name of the distributor for the Columbia area. I know we have a lot of interested folks in the SC area. Last year we had a mini-mini-fest at the 'Blues and BBQ Festival' in Greenwood. BGE was a corporate sponsor and we cooked all day on a large, small, medium and mini. JSlot was competing so we drew some attention. It would be fun to do a EGg Fest and I might even be able to find a country locale to host it if you really want to go "woodsy" around Chappels SC. But there are a lot of good state parks around Lake Murray or even Lake Moultrie or Lake Marion if you want to do something like QBabe did down in Florida. Course if Puj was just real nice, he'd invite all down to Charleston for a weekend.

    Jwirlwind,
    Yes the dealer at the Florida fest was great.I just received my platesetter today from him.He gets my business.Too bad your local dealer wants to pass up business.
