The tent will be a dark color, either black, dark blue. The tent size will be 10x10'. My cargo trailer which gets parked next to the tent is a champagne/tan color.

I like the wood cuts that I have on my existing logo, but by no means do you have to incorporate them into your design. I DONT want an animal cartoon type logo. I like prairie/craftsman style designs/fonts.
My team name is Lake House, because I live on a lake, and I like it because it conjures the image of kicking back and slowly roasting meats and enjoying the peace and tranquility of the lake with friends.
I've attached a picture of how we set up for a contest, except you can't see the cargo trailers. The team on the left, Wine Country Q has a tent like I am going to get, with the logos on the peaks of the tent. I am next to them on the right. The next picture is of how my set up looks now.
On the tent, I can put anything on the 4 peaks and the front half wall. I can put the same logo in all four sides, or I can put the team name on 2 sides and another graphic on the other two.
There is a Pintrest site with a good compilation of bbq logos on it http://pinterest.com/divaqbbq/bbq-team-logos/
