DESIGNATING BUBBAFEST `96 AND ITS BUBBA-Q COOKOFF CONTEST IN WOODRUFF IN SPARTANBURG COUNTY AS THE KCBS STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA CHAMPIONSHIP BARBEQUE FOR 1996.
Whereas, on March 20, 1996, The Bubba-Q Cookoff Contest will be given KCBS sanctioning by the board of directors of the Kansas City Barbeque Society; this prestigious recognition will elevate the Town of Woodruff's cooking event and BubbaFest `96 into a select group of only fifty contests held throughout the United States; and
Whereas, each year cooking teams must earn points in order to compete at the American Royale World Championship held in Kansas City, Missouri, meaning that BubbaFest will host a large number of teams from many other states and Woodruff, in Spartanburg County, will be the showcase for this event; and
Whereas, BubbaFest attracts thousands of people, has gained national and even international attention for the past four years, and provides excellent publicity for Woodruff, Spartanburg County, and the Palmetto State; and
Whereas, in addition to the Bubba-Q Cookoff Contest, the family-oriented festival of BubbaFest in Woodruff offers the BubbaLympics team competition, BubbaBuddies, Bubba and Bubbette Contest, arts and crafts, a variety of music and entertainment, and great family fun for all ages; and
Whereas, designation as a State Championship event will permit the grand champion of the Bubba-Q Cookoff Contest at BubbaFest to receive automatically an invitation to the American Royale World Championship at Kansas City and to the Jack Daniels' National Invitational Barbeque Competition at Lynchburg, Tennessee. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, designates BubbaFest '96 and its Bubba-Q Cookoff Contest in Woodruff as the KCBS State of South Carolina Championship Barbeque for 1996.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to BubbaFest '96, in care of Mr. Chester A. Hoag, Chairman, Post Office Box 858, Duncan, South Carolina 29334.
