Thanks to the excellent levels of attendance at the Rotary Club of McHenry’s 2017 Blues, Brews & Barbecue, this fundraiser was a great success. Proceeds more than doubled those from 2016; these proceeds will be invested in our shared community (like the more than $150,000 the Rotary Club of McHenry has reinvested in our shared community over the last five years).  See This is Us for details. We appreciate the excellent participation of our community.
The Kansas City Barbecue Society competition was a great success. We had 36 teams competing and more than 40 judges and other individuals who officiated the competition.  The results can be viewed by clicking here
The KCBS Representative estimated a public attendance of 10,000.  Although this was our first, we received excellent reviews from the KCBS Representative; that is, in all of the eight categories to be evaluated, our first KCBS event received the highest “excellent” rating.
