Smoke-n-Thunder BBQ Classic Competition Canceled

ST_BBQ_2ROME, GA; July 5, 2016  JLC AirShow Management officials announced today that the Smoke-n-Thunder BBQ Classic competition held in conjunction with the annual Wings Over North Georgia air show is officially canceled.  After four years of spirited competition, air show management has been unsuccessful in securing enough sponsorship for the BBQ Classic portion of the air show weekend activities.  

The Wings Over North Georgia management would like to thank Mr. Scott Smith, 2015 BBQ Classic Director along with an outstanding group of volunteers, judges and officials for their support and dedication during the BBQ Classic’s four years of competition.  Scott has worked closely with air show management in efforts to continue this competition, unfortunately the final cancellation was an unavoidable business decision.  

All BBQ Classic competition teams that were signed up for this year’s competition can expect to see their competition application refund in the mail ASAP.

The air show and concert series this Oct 29-30 at Rome’s Russell Regional Airport will proceed as scheduled headlining the USAF Thunderbirds military jet demonstration team along with country music artist Travis Tritt.
