I didn't mean the "pros" cooking - I meant the "pros" doing the "organizing" - you lose volunteer staff and usually the only option left is paid staff and soon things like the "Open" are being downsized because they can't afford the staffing.
It's too bad a power struggle had to develop.
Never the less - it'll be interesting to see how it plays out.
