The GBA Florida State Championship Goes to Bubba Grills

The GBA Florida State Championship Goes to Bubba Grills

Tropical Storm Andrea tried to put a damper on GBA Goin’ Coastal in Fernandina Beach, FL, even spawning a tornado that passed near the contest site on Thursday night. Contest organizer Jay Robertson and the City of Fernandina Beach took it all in stride and put on a great contest. Twenty eight teams vied for the GBA’s Florida State Championship. Another 20+ teams were on hand to compete in the Fun Cook and there were numerous vendors and live musical entertainment throughout the day Saturday.
