Let’s Go Camping!

Kim Lovelady led her team to victory at the 2011 Camp Pull-A-Shot in California.

If you haven’t been to the Barista Guild of America‘s Camp Pull-A-Shot (or if you have and you just want to get back there) then you’ve got to enter this contest from our friends at Toddy! You can win an all-expenses-paid trip to the June edition of camp in Wisconsin with just a simple photograph, but you’ve got to act fast. Submissions are due March 29!

The gist of the contest is simple: As the BGA says, “Tell us in a photo why you love the craft of being a barista.” You upload your photo and info via the Facebook page for the contest. Then the photos are voted on from March 29 – April 13. Then the winner will be announced live during the USBC in Boston! Here’s the fine print: you can only enter if you’re at least 18 years old and a US resident.

Barista Camp is a tremendous opportunity for learning about coffee, improving barista skills, building community, and for making great connections in the coffee industry. So get those cameras rolling and snap some pics! And once again, can I say how awesome Toddy is to be sponsoring this?
