I think that could be very detrimental to the KCBS. KCBS is selling a service to contest organizers. If I were organizing a contest I would want a sanctioning organization that allows the most people to compete. Limiting my competition to a members only event would limit the number of teams.

Every team pays an entry fee which in turn pays for the sanctioning. Nobody that pays the entry fee is getting a free ride. If you look at the KCBS financials a lot more money comes in via sanctioning fees than membership fees. Sanctioning fees pay for all the reps, slips, plates computer usage etc.

I can certainly understand requiring membership to be eligible for Team of the Year and any other benefit programs that KCBS provides.

This post is my opinion and mine alone, not necessarily that of the KCBS, it's board of directors or office nor that of Peter Pan, Tinkerbell and certainly not Rush Limbaugh.
