Team Oakridge 2013 Year In Review

It was a banner year for us. I can’t really even put into words how impressed I am with all of our sponsored teams. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again; it’s one thing to compete with your own rubs and do well, but it’s entirely another to watch others take your creations and win weekend after weekend with them.  Take a look at what these fine folks accomplished in 2013…

  • 234 Contests
  • 10 Sanctioning Bodies
  • 2 Countries
  • 30 States
  • 166 Chicken calls
  • 147 Rib calls
  • 130 Pork calls
  • 166 Brisket calls
  • 23 RCGs
  • 28 GCs
  • 812 Total Top Ten Calls

for a GRAND TOTAL of 1,544 Top Ten Calls in just the last three seasons!
