I'm always Leary about eating at those types of events. There was another one just a few years ago. If I remember correctly.

I love those bbq's, wish I could find them more often! Anyone know where a list is that shows you where they are being held that Saturday? You can get sick nearly anywhere at any time including buying food from the grocery store.

What's Up Shopper What’s Up Shopper | … And Info For Cleveland, Gaston, and Lincoln Counties A Free Weekly Advertising Tabloid & Shelby Shopper The Shelby Shopper frequently list these events. There must be something similar that covers where you are. What's Up Shopper covers Gaston, Cleveland & Lincoln, so it might work for you to check them online.

As with most things concerning Shelby, Shelby Shopper skews west & just isn't available at very many places in Kings Mountain. I did see a copy a couple of weeks ago & it was plugging the Sandy Plains event.

Actually, this one was not in Shelby. Sandy Plains is an unincorporated area just north of City of Kings Mountain, out in the township. More than half of the people who were reported sick were from Rutherford County because of the way that the Shelby Shopper is distributed, not because of proximity.

You're welcome. I know that you're in Mooresville, that's why I said that the What's Up Shopper might have something of interest to you since it includes Lincoln County. I rarely pick up Shelby Shopper, on the rare occasion that I see it. It's really more geared to Rutherford County than Kings Mountain. It does you no good unless you plan a trip to Lake Lure.

I posted the links so that you'd know what I was talking about.
