BothB events are KCBS Sanctioned events right now unless they cannot make sanctioning for whatever reason(Financial, 90 day deadline, different rules, etc). So the events can be sanctioned or unsanctioned. Sanctioning can be by ANY sanctioning body if an organizer wants it that way. I am of the school that sanctioning brings credibility and a level of comfort to a contest in the eyes of the teams. Again, what the future holds remains to be seen regarding "other" sanctioning compared to whats available today.

What we are working on is what WE can bring to the table to enhance a contest. What the future will hold is still on paper, but the current challenge is what value can we add to a contest or organizer to entice them. BotB 09 had the grilling challenge with onsite judging(and a specific rulebook) that was a huge hit, that can be a start as part of the footprint. Our strength is in our networking, and i am just today talking with some national advertisers who may be interested in adding prizes to the contests.

Good discussion.. Id like to hear more input. (Especially from organizers)
