Bingo. It lets organizers have flexibility to make category changes. And so long as they cook the minimum required by AR and Jack the only thing really lost is the KCBS TOY points. It mau impact a few teams or it may put TOY back into perspective. it's a grea honor but only a handful can really spend the time to seriously compete for it.
And it protects existing KCBS contests as it still requires an approval process by the BOD. Don't underestiamte this power. Keeping a contest off the KCBS website and out of the Bullsheet does cut down on the audience for your contest.
