What does SCA Provide a Sanctioned Cookoff?
SCA Offers two types of sanctioned events:
1. Sanctioned Friday night “Steak Jackpot” events
2. Sanctioned Full Steak Cookoffs
Sanctioned Friday night “Steak Jackpot” event
For the organizer that wants a sanctioned Friday night steak component at their Cookoff, we offer the Friday night “Steak Jackpot” sanctioning level. These events are held in conjunction with a BBQ cookoff. We do not sanction the BBQ cookoff, just the “Jackpot Steak”, and steak score will not be part of BBQ events scoring. % payouts are allowed for Friday Night Jackot events. A minimum guaranteed pay out with incremental increases is suggested. The SCA will perform the following for your event:
