AFS Team Spirit

Huntsville – Team AFS is ready to compete in the Kansas City BBQ Competition held this Friday & Saturday at the Whistlestop Weekend Festival in downtown Huntsville, Alabama. Whistlestop is an annual festival and BBQ competition that benefits the EarlyWorks family of museums.

Team AFS will compete in the official KCBS competition against BBQ teams from across the region and the country.

“We’re excited to take on the BBQ pros,” notes team member Sean Glouner. “The competition is fun…but so is sampling the BBQ all weekend long.”

AFS remains committed to community and family events that support quality of life throughout our service areas.  “Our teams live, work and play in the same communities that our customers do,” notes AFS President & Owner, Ben Bayless Jr.  “My children love museums like EarlyWorks, and if we can participate in something fun like a BBQ competition – and it helps fund educational attractions – we’re proud to do it.”

Stay tuned to the AFS Facebook page to hear the results of the competition!
