The LACC along with 20 chamber businesses are sponsoring the 2017 Backyard BBQ Giveaway.
“We decided to do this as a way to boost local shopping during the summer at businesses in town and also get some PR for the Chamber,” LACC Executive Director Barb Mehlhoff, said.
There is no purchase necessary to enter the giveaway as all shoppers need to do is go into one of the 20 participating locations, which range from Ag Country Credit Union to United Telephone. Locations to register include:

The giveaway kicks off on June 5 when shoppers can begin registering for a chance to win a 22 inch Weber Kettle Grill, a BBQ accessory pack, and a dinner for the lucky winner and up to nine of their family and friends. The final day to enter for the first giveaway will be June 11. The winner of the first giveaway will be drawn on June 13 and announced during the KNDK Community Calendar radio show at about 1:20 p.m.
“The LACC Chamber Board of Directors will bring the grill, accessory kit, supplies, and even supply the dinner consisting of hamburgers, hot dogs, buns, chips, and non-alcoholic beverages,” Mehlhoff explained. ”And everything will be purchased locally, right down to the coals for the grill.”
The only items that the winner will have to provide is a safe area for the BBQ to take place, table and chairs for the guests, a garbage can, and a cooler with ice for beverages provided.
The first party will take place on Thursday, June 15 starting at 4:30 p.m. for setup with dinner served at 5:30 p.m. The second winning BBQ will take place on July 27 with the same rules applying.
No need to worry about music for the party as the Big 106 Jeep will be there to provide it.
So when registering, be sure these dates and times will work with your schedule as there will be no date substitutions allowed. Also of note is that this giveaway is open only to residents of Cavalier County.
Be sure to get your name in the drawing at any of the 20 locations starting June 5 for this amazing summer giveaway sponsored by the Langdon Area Chamber of Commerce.
