Well on the bright side, all 2 members from Mexico voted!

Take a look at the level of participation from cooks, who I agree arguably have more skin in the game.

I couldn't find it broken down by cooks (user error, I'm certain) and judges, but my comment was not to disparage judges. The ones that are out doing 10+ contests a year are just as invested and committed to this as the cooks.

That being said, cooks that cook a couple times a year aren't invested either. I just assume they're less likely to be members, since you aren't required to be a member to cook, but you are in order to be a CBJ.

All fair points. Apparently the link I posted, to the recent survey results, doesn't load that page if you aren't logged in. The results of the judge seating survey indicate that cooks participated to a lesser degree than judges.

Just a quick fyi... I joined KCBS in 2010 as a member only. That's right... neither a cook nor a cbj! Took the cbj class first quarter of 2013.

Also, many cooks around here have taken the cbj class, but don't actively judge !!! They are considered CBJs !!!

The current board ran on transparency. Where is an announcement why is everything in closed session and what is the special search committee? Is This current board is shrouded in secrecy and closed door action? Where is the transparency? Where is the communication? Where is the plan to fix the judge education system? After 10 years, I am already on the fence if I want to cook again. This may just push me over the edge....

July Agenda is posted


Questions that popped into my mind:

  • What's Heath Hall's Status? He's no longer listed on the meeting attendees yet is still listed as CEO on the website.
  • There was a lot of discussion last year from East Coast teams about the difficulty of getting to the KCBS championships from both a weather and distance issue. The solutions seems to be "Lets move it even further away" (Dallas? really?)
  • The ToY discussion (allow backyard cooks to count for ToY). That was just,,,,wow

Membership down 247 from last month, that's interesting to me.

Also, I'm new to the KCBS/comp scene, but what is the major deal with having an assistant cook take place of the head cook if there is a conflict? Especially when the conflict is work, like the situation stated.

This is a very good question. It still shows that the CEO report is due in Closed Session.

Another interesting topic was discussed in the rules committee. They discussed ideas about why contests and teams are disappearing and one idea discussed was dropping brisket entirely.

I saw this too but didn't know if that was for the contests or just for the TOY points. To me it wouldn't be near as fun without the brisket as it seems to be the biggest challenge.

I guess fixing what's actually broken is too much of a challenge

Let’s say Tim & I form a team. He cooks some I cook some, but our points both count towards the team as long as the comps aren’t on the same day. This would be a very unfair situation. We could do doubles on opposite ends of the planet and we’d never miss a weekend cooking, but we each could have plenty of time off.

On second thought, maybe they should change the rule.
