Meals will be provided by Big Springs Ranch for participants and their families.
The food at this event is worth the registration fee alone! Last year participants raved about the two dinners provided by our master BBQ chef Trey Toothman. This year we plan to add breakfast before the event and lunch for those who finish early enough to eat. This will save you a trip into Leakey and hopefully everyone will be able to stay for the closing dinner and awards.
