Very interesting comments. I personally can't abide by a rule setup for a single organizer as is being proposed on the agenda on the KCBS website. Set qualifications for this or handle each contest as an exception.
How can you approve a contest in Phoenix on the same day as another contest? They are less than 15 miles away.
How can you say individual X has these rules and eveybody else follows these rules.
I support Ron's contests but he has to play by the rules or maybe he should continue with his idea to start a new sanctioning body which I also will support. I think any motion for special privlige for Ron should include a guarantee from Ron that he will not start a new organization to sanction BBQ contests for at least 5 years.
