For the third year, a Maverick Meal Deal will be offered.  For $6, attendees will be able to enjoy either a pulled pork sandwich or a brisket sandwich, a side of coleslaw, and a side of cornbread.  Cash or credit/debit card payments will be accepted, and they may be paid at the event.  Advance orders are requested and may be placed by clicking on the "Register Now" button above.  Departments or offices wishing to place multiple orders are encouraged to place one group order.  Orders should include the quantity of each (brisket or pulled pork) desired, a name, and a contact phone number and e-mail address.  A limited number of meals, in addition to the advance orders placed, may be made available.  Last year, the additional meals sold out in 5 minutes.
