Ron Kocian, Warrior's Weekend president, said this year broke an attendee record and he would like to accommodate as many soldiers as possible next year.
Saturdays' events also includes a barbecue cook-off, Smokin' For Heroes, at the Victoria Community Center, with check-in for the barbecue beginning at noon Friday. A $6,000 pay out will be offered in prizes. The entry fee is $125 plus a cooked brisket. The meat will include brisket, pork ribs and chicken.
Jackpot entries for desserts and beans are also available. For more information, visit the IBCA.com website.
