Guess there is something we arent suppose to know about.

Ford 06-02-2009 07:29 PM

Maybe some people are on vacation and we all know that the notes get a quick review before being published. We'll eventually see the notes and full minutes. Who cares anyway.

Merl 06-02-2009 07:39 PM

Me Bad.
Had to pack up law office and move. (Govt tearing down my building of 28 years)
Been out of town, judicial education.
Too many contest, have to get relaxation.
Lots of other but they all are more excuses.
Going to class and contest Thursday.
Will work on it when I get back.
1st time in a year and half to not have them within about 48 hours. We do our best, I hope they don't dock my pay check.

Shame on you.. Now send me food.

Im not picky, a burger will do. ;)

Diva 06-02-2009 10:58 PM

I care. They've always been posted within 24-48 hours. These folks (though not paid) were voted in by the membership. I figured that since whatevers on the agenda has to be there within a certain time frame the recap should be as well.As many had said during my employment, 'I paid my $35'....

I didn't know they were required to post them to the various BBQ forums. If that is the case then yes they are remiss, if not than it is simply a courtesy that they have been doing so. Be interesting to know.

I don't think they are, but, they should at LEAST be on the KCBS website. They're not. It'll be a month since the last board meeting later this week...

Merl 06-08-2009 05:29 PM

Did you not read the part about they would be done when I got back. No one was complaining for the 18 months they irregularly appeared in the past before I have been able to post them for 15 consecutive months. I am glad it was only my friends beating me down, I would hate to see what others would do. Now lets all form a big hug circle and sing "we shall overcome".

Here they are:

Wayne Lohman made a motion to suspend the rules and approve an emergency date change for the Whitehorn Cove, Wagoner, Oklahoma contest scheduled for Memorial Day way due to flooding of the contest area and approve the new date of July 24-25. The motion was seconded by Carol Whitebook.
Vote:
11 yes, 0 no, 0 abstain
The motion to suspend the rules and allow the date change to July 24-25 for the Whitehorn Cove contest was approved.

Wayne Lohman proposed to the Board of Directors, a Sanctioning Compliance Rule on how to handle situations where Guaranteed Prize Money letter had not be posted with KCBS or a certificate of insurance was not received both as required for sanctioning.

Don Harwell reported, a service has been identified to allow members to call into the board meetings. This service can permit members to talk or to be muted for listen only mode. A form to register to monitor or speak must be provided to the KCBS at least 24 hours (close of business, 5:00 p.m., K.C. MO. C.S.T.) in writing on a form provided by the office and directed to the Secretary in care of the KCBS office.

The issue of changes or revisions to the Team of the Year was discussed. Mike Lake assigned a review to Linda Mullane and the Rules Committee.

Ed Roith reported there have been some problems with delayed mailing or delivery of CBJ class forms, and reports, by instructors. Ed recommended a mandatory procedure for CBJ class reporting which was adopted by the Board.

Linda Mullane reported to the Board concerns about the contest with more than 50 teams and Rep responsibilities. The board adopted a policy to begin in 2010 that the sanctioning agreement will provide for one additional Contest Rep for each 25 teams or part of after the first 50.

These are not the official minutes of the meeting. They are simply provided as an effort to give members a quick summary of the board meeting.

Learn something new everyday. I didn't even know they were posted on the KCBS website at all. I went there to look for them and well, that in itself is another thread.

It was disturbing to see that they tabled discussion on 4 contests because the applications were not turned in on time but they stopped the entire meeting suspended the rules and were able to approve a date change for a contest. Can only shake my head. Oh well that is why we pay our $35 I guess.

That is easy to understand. The 4 contests were not until late Oct or November and not timely produced. There would be no prejudice to the contest to wait for the next board meeting. They already had soft approval. The Wagoner contest however was already a sanctioned contest which was less than 12 days away and under water due to flooding of the lake. I am very comfortable the decision to take action on behalf of the Wagoner contest. Natural disaster is a usually good cause for exceptional action.
