All Teams need to arrive through the team entry gate located on W. Smith Rd (in front of Hillcrest High School). Team check in will also be at that gate. You will need to arrive and be set up by Friday at 2pm but can start as early as Wednesday afternoon. All cars must be off the lot by 2pm and no outside food and alcohol will be allowed in after 2pm. PLEASE REMOVE YOUR VEHICLE AS SOON AS ALL OF YOUR EQUIPMENT IS DELIVERED TO YOUR SPOT.  All lanes need to remain open so there is enough room for all the teams to deliver their grills and for us to set up all the tents.


Gates will lock late on Friday night so if you plan to leave at any point and then come back in the middle of the night, please let me know so we can make arrangements.


The cost is $45/day for each RV or camper. If you are camping. You will be directed to your spot at Team Check-In.

Parking Passes

All teams will receive 2 Team Parking Passes.  If you have not already done so and would like to purchase additional parking in Team VIP Parking, passes are $25 each and can be purchased through me before the event.


Volunteers for your booth without wristbands and team parking passes will need to pay to park and pay for their entry. Pre-sale tickets are $8 at Hy-Vee, Great Southern Bank and Kum & Go. Parking is $5.

Wrist Bands

All teams will receive 5 wristbands for their cook team or volunteers to wear for entry and re-entry into the event. They will be put on at team check in. If you decide to cook for the public on Friday as well, you will get an extra 5 wristbands (10 TOTAL). Cooking on Friday night is the ONLY way to receive extra wristbands/tickets.


Sponsors only are allowed to hand out company info, gifts, items to the public. Teams that are only teams, are not allowed to do so. Please remember that teams and sponsors alike are not allowed to sell anything to the public.

Product Donations

If you have something that you would like to donate to the event, for us to sell in our “General Boar Store” to benefit the children’s charities, please let me know. We can also take donations for the goodie bags (240 total) if you are interested.


You will need to provide your own people to serve to the public.  These “volunteers” in your booth are not considered RnR Event Volunteers.  They will not receive free parking or entrance.  They will need to pay for themselves or use the team wristbands or tickets you provide them.  They will still need to pay for parking unless they have our team parking pass.
