Sponsorship Information

Needles, CA. is the location for the Newest Rt. 66 Music Brews & BBQ Championship. This barbecue competition will be held the first weekend of October each year. As all of the Music Brews & BBQ Championships this will also be another KCBS (Kansas City BBQ Society) sanctioned event along with being a CBBQA ToY (CA. BBQ Association Team of the Year Event). We are Qualifiers for the American Royale, Jack Daniels Invitational and the CBBQA ToY. Starting in 2013 we will be promoting a New Series called The Rt. 66 National Championship Series. This will involve many other competitions from states all along Old Rt. 66 from California to Missouri that pay a fee to become a series event. Then all teams that compete at any events in this series will have their point totals accumulated at the end of the year, the teams with the highest points will win additional cash prizes for their efforts and support of series events. Currently we have including Needles and Lake Havasu 5 other events in CA., AZ., and NM interested in participating.

This coming year (2012) we have again set high goals for this newest event, but in order to achieve these goals we will again need help from our Sponsorship Partners New as well as Old. Our goal is to get over 60 Pro Comp BBQ Teams to compete annually in the Needles Rt. 66 Music Brews and BBQ Event. Increasing prize funds continue to play a role on demand for team entries. To maintain high participation levels that match that of other competitions while keeping the team entry cost to a minimum is paramount in attracting the higher number of teams. We have continued to visit events in multiple states, and have met with hundreds of Pro Comp BBQ teams and their members. Plus we have talked to an additional 500 judges which are crucial in maintaining CBJ percentages (Certified Barbecue Judges), which is also a must in producing more teams. This has produced more than 700 out-of-area visitors that participate annually during our other event. This also helps us in drawing the more than 20,000 attendees annually, over the past four (4) years in Lake Havasu City.
