    Not sure all the ins and outs of this competition, but just got word from a family friend that is one of the main members of RBT that they have been selected to compete.

    Here is the link to the Press Release.

    From the email sent to RBT

    Make sure you show up on November 7th to let everyone know that Houston is the best city hands down when it comes to tailgating!

    Tailgating should be about cooperating, not competing.

    The golden grill, huh? Sounds like a step above the turkey statue Fox gives out at thanksgiving.

    Exactly... Ya'll do it pretty good over in the BC, and we do the same in the the Orange.. but ya know, sometimes you just can't beat a good ole' cheeseburger grilled with a side and a beer or two, and a whole lot of friends.. That to me beats a corporate sponsored tailgate bash 9 out of 10 times !!!

    I'd rather have a burned burger cooked by a friend than a gourmet meal cooked by a hired gun (err, this ONLY applies to tailgating, lol).

    Comercial Tailgate Guru this is for you, HEB here you go. We have had a 100 plus at game day for years and our group is top notch without the competitive comercial input. To me it would just create infighting and that is not what Tailgating is about. Tailgating is about the comraderie of Football Fans and not who is better than who. We the Blue Crew and Raging Bull showed what we could do when the Chron had a contest and we were excluded for weeks only to get in for a week and place third in the compitition. If we would have been in for the duration we would have shared a Bragging right with the raging Bull as we have the greatest spot on Reliant Grounds for a Tailgate spot.

    Ragging Bull has sponsers Joe. They could compete with anyone on a National level, IMHO. All it takes is a big pot of money.

    Judge Chamberlain Haller: That is a lucid, intelligent, well thought-out objection.
    Vinny Gambini: Thank you, sir.

    Correctamundo!!

    We started a cool thing (I think it was Katie and Kathryn that came up with it); we sell raffle tickets to BC members (not sure how much if any get sold to visitors). The winner gets half the proceeds and the other half is going to go towards, banners, tents and the Blue Crew community items.

    Don't know about visitors, but I can attest to the fact that they sell to moochers and wandering drunks...:D

    The Raffle came from the Hall of Fame we do it every year and it is a great success, Thanks to Ted and Kathrine for suggesting we do it here and thanks to kathrine, Jen Katie and all the other who help sell the tickets every week. You will be witnessing something this next tailgate if you have not noticed the sun screens that Katie so generously donated to us. We are determined to make the Blue Crew better for everyone that enjoys the blue crew.

    I suggested to Kathryn, Jen and Katie that we open up a Blue Crew account at a bank so a) we can take the proceeds of the raffle stuff to score our new gear and b) so that some of us can throw a hundy once in awhile towards that goal, in addition to the raffle tickets....... just sayin'!

    I think thats a great idea but I hardly believe you don't spend a dime on tailgating...therefore...you are a sponsor...

    Right.... Well sorta. Blue Crew are ALL sponsors in that regard. Whether it's Joe donating the pinata, whether it's the Blue Crew game day shots, or whatever food is layed out on the tables at "the Corner" is all donated. We just do it out of our own pockets AND because we just want people come visit us and have an awesome time!!!!

    I support Blue Crew monetarily as an individual, without putting out huge HEB signs and other corporate sign support. The fact that a guy a work with (our company) with and who is also a Blue Crewer, we have never used our company as a source for donations. What we do is straight out of our own pockets.

    I hear ya...just trying to make a point. Technically we are all sponsors. I can't knock it...I od it myself. I consider it "the price of admission".
