I've been to 3 - Philly, San Diego & this yr's KCBS. This yr's dinner set up was definitely better with the plated entree but would have been better to ask if you wanted chicken or steak - though I'm not sure many ate the chicken. We had to ask for coffee. Was told at the previous meeting that they couldn't get vendor areas due to being remote but KC always had a good show- not! felt bad for the few vendors that were there-not sure why it's another opportunity to showcase BBQ & KCBS to the public. Would like to see the board meeting be more of an Annual meeting- instead of a rush through of the normal accepting the submitted reports monthly. Membership, Rep & CBJ's report do give some of a summary - but it would be nice to see formal year end committee reports - and copies of the report/agenda available. Last year's hotel provided opportunities to get together with the breakfast & evening buffet. Something to keep in mind when selecting next year's hotel or setting up a hospitality area. This hotel was definitely more pricey for food/liquor than San Diego & Philly. If people aren't coming in until Friday night- hold meetings then - could have multiple meetings at the same time on Saturday- more breakout sessions. Definitely agree with setting up a bbq or foodie crawl. Looking forward to Nashville.
