The fifth annual Brenau Barbecue Championship May 24-25 brings together 37 different cook teams from four states to battle for Memphis Barbecue Network and Georgia Barbecue Association amateur and professional titles as well as rights to compete the World Food Championship in Las Vegas.
This is the first time that the MBN and GBA teams have competed together at the Brenau festival, now regarded as one of the top regional competition events in the country. MBN participating “professional” teams will compete in three categories of Memphis-style deliciousness: whole hog, ribs and shoulder shank. Although the GBA competition replaces Brenau’s “Backyard Braggart” amateur competition, both professional and amateur teams can participate, serving up Boston Butt, ribs and pork loin. Some competitors though are competing in both MBN and GBA contests.

Those of you who have kindly volunteered to work at the Brenau Barbecue Championship, please come to the Walters House to pick up your “Event Staff” T-shirt to wear while you’re working the BBQ.
You may come by between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 noon, or between 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. any day of the work week starting now and ending Wednesday, May 22nd. If you can’t get by before the BBQ, we will have the remaining T-shirts (if there are any) at the volunteer table. We do not have a very big number left, so if you want one for sure, please come by sooner rather than later.
Staff may now wear appropriate casual wear throughout the summer months until Aug. 9. All employees may wear jeans with a Brenau

According to section 2-03C of Brenau Employee Code, these are wardrobe selections never appropriate for the office:

The fire alarms on the Brenau University Gainesville campus are reguraly inspected and tested to maintain the safest environment possible for our students, faculty, staff, and guests. During these tests, the fire alarms are activated, meaning the strobe lights flash and audible alarms sound.
Testing and inspections will begin on Tuesday, May 14 and continue through Tuesday, May 21. Because of the number of alarms, pin-pointing a schedule is difficult. We will attempt to notify everyone within a particular building that the test is about to begin. However, we will likely miss someone, so we ask for your understanding.
Due to the operation of the Child Development Center, the building’s inspection will be performed after hours. Due to the size of the building, the Main Complex inspection will be performed on Friday afternoon. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact Mike Hollimon at firstname.lastname@example.org or 770-531-3123, or Jediah Carling at email@example.com or 770-297-5897.
