This seems like a stupid question, But I'm compelled to ask anyway :icon_blush:
Why do I as a KCBS member do I have to ask permission to attend
the KCSB BOD meeting in Philly :rolleyes:
Thats what I read in the Bull sheet that came yesterday.

Only to know how big a room we need. IF we have 30 like last year we need a smaller room than if we have 100. We pay per size of room. Hope that helps, we welcome the members to attend.

I thought permission to attend was not required, only permission to speak?

I added the BOD meeting on the registration form, does that count as permission to attend?

Candy you are correct. The annual meeting is open to every KCBS member in good standing. (pd dues and good moral character). You only have to register 24 hours in advance if you desire to address the board on an issue.

I look forward to seeing everyone in Philly.

Good luck with the results Candy.

Greg,
It requires a two line phone with conference capability. Don was checking with the Hotel to see if they could provide it. I do not know the out come.

I hope so too.

Merl, do you know if any thought has been given to making audio of the rules meeting available to members that can't attend. Either live, or via MP3 later on? I'd be interested to hear the discussion that may or may not alter the rules for the coming season.

Good idea on the rules recording! Might be a bit frustrating though.

I've got to admit, that's not why I'm looking forward to being in Philly! As a "product of Pennsylvania" myself, it'll be fun seeing how much I don't remember from 30 years ago. As a descendant from a Declaration of Independence signer (and a direct descendant from a Tennessee Volunteer who fought at Kings Mountain), I think I'll do the history thing early Saturday.

Are there any dinner plans going on for Friday night?

I see that pellet cookers are on the Rules meeting agenda for the 10th consecutive year. I'm sure garnish will come up, too. These topics are like the Pucksatony Phil of BBQ. They come out the end of January each year waiting for the KCBS BOD to see their shadows. Could this be the year that these rules change because a couple dozen members meet in a hotel conference room?

They used to meet at a Senior Center.

They used to meet at a Senior Center.

The venues change, but the hot air stays the same. It is sad that we have contests struggling for sponsorship money along with a low BOD approval rating and people want to talk about the same rhetorical topics that have been discussed over and over for at least the ten years that I've been a KCBS member.

Well, at least this year we get to talk about the all important returning of parted pork to the cooker.

That's not as bad as the people that had me craving Salumeria all day yesterday. I'm told the Italian Hoagie w/house dressing is the way to go.

Moe, you're going to find fish & chips everywhere. Just walk into any of the pubs. I remember stumbling into a place called Rotten Ralphs and eating about 12:00 one night. Things were kind of fuzzy but I needed food.
Another one that's close to you guys is the City Tavern. This is where the "boys" met and swilled beer while writing the Declaration of Independence. It's really cool but more formal.
Just walk down the streets and you'll find good food and beer in that area. You're really gonna like your beer choices out there.

We had a great lunch at City Tavern on Saturday, but no fish and chips in sight there. The food is mostly german style. Parsley Lady had Sausage Wellington (home made sausage wrapped in spinach, pancetta and puff pastry then baked and serverd with home made fettucini noodles). I had Spicy Hungarian Goulash served over think home made noodles.
