Often KCBS has little to do with scheduling. This year, because of leap year and how weekends are falling out, there are several situations where contests are falling on top of each other. In our area, we have five contests within 30 minutes of each other on the same weekend. In other years, they would be spread across two weekends and still have 50+ teams each. Often the organizers are limited to when the space is available to them like at a fair grounds or park that may have other events on alternative weekends. The organizer is faced with canceling the contest or hoping for the best. If they proceed, KCBS is in a tough spot when the contest is one that has been sanctioned in previous years.

I've attended on KCBS BOD meeting that lasted HOURS. Contest sanctioning and schedules was one of the agenda items. It was eye opening.
