I don't get that statement, unless you are saying ALL of the sanctioning bodies have "very little traction in Georgia". I think your viewpoint is being skewed by what you see in your immediate neighborhood again.
I'm trying to let this die, because I didnt want to stir the crap, by any
means, however as I ran the numbers, both KCBS and GBA were lower...
I fairly certain GBA had only 6 *sanctioned*. However, there were others
using Lonnie's guide doing GBA "style". MBN was probably 7, but I know
of others MBN "style" under Heathers guidance.

Lets let this die. I really dont care whether KCBS allows garnish or not.
If they allow it, mine will be garnished.

Luckily KCBS is getting some headway in the state, finally.

You guys got Rome to go KCBS, didnt you?
Hance - Lake Dogs Cooking Team - MiM/MBN/GBA CBJ and comp cook
Lake Sinclair, GA (strategically about an hour from darn near anywhere)
Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.
