What about KCBS discounting their fee relative to the amount of KCBS teams?
Set up a fee schedule with the normal fee expected for sanctioning and for each existing KCBS member team get x amount off. For each team the organizer gets to join KCBS due to the event they could offer y amount off. This gives the organizer a reason to sign teams up rather then forcing them to do so.
This does, in a way, bring in more cooks. Although KCBS isn't bringing in people off their couch they are increasing membership.

To part or not to part: that is the question. Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to part and suffer the slings and arrows of ostentatious brothers or to not part when faced with a sea of dissent, and by compromise end it? To part: to succeed. Forever more: and by succeed to say we win.
Yeah it looks good...but how does it smell?
