Quick Notes from the Board Room
August 12, 2008

The KCBS Board of Directors, this month continued its conversations concerning the procedure for licensing of 1st time Non Sanctioned contest (without a proclamation.) and stand alone (non KCBS meat) contests. It is the goal of KCBS to provide its style of contest and competition to more types of contests. The Board the granted a license to several of these types of contests, to be a licensed KCBS contest. If you have a particular interest to organize a sanctioned or licensed contest, contact KCBS for more information.

The Board modified the procedure regarding DQs. The policy will provide that all DQs receive a score of 1. This will primarily effect DQs such as a late turn in which is not accepted, and currently would show a score of 0s. This will modify the entry of score for such a DQ to provide for scores of 1s in all criteria. This will not change how specific DQs are handled as published in the 2008 KCBS Rules and Regulations.

The Board established a policy for judging of Backyard contest. It is the desire of the Board that Backyard and KCBS judging not be mixed or scored together. The recommended procedure will be provided to all Contest Reps and Organizers.

The Board resolved issues regarding four, KCBS Contest Reps. A Competition Cook team was placed on one year probation for conduct unbecoming the standards of KCBS and a CBJ was suspended for one year for a violation of the CBJ code of conduct.

Paul Kirk introduced a project to produce a promotional and educational video outline all facets of organizing a KCBS contest and other helpful issues. He expects to be producing the CD as part of the annual banquet.

The Board voted to change the date of the 2009 Annual Banquet which will be held in Nashville, Tn, from the Martin Luther King weekend to January 23-24, 2009.
