lookd like a good slate so far. Hope we don't end up with 12-14 like it's been recently. I wish I hadn't accepted the nomination last year as I took a lot of votes from others who could maybe have made it otherwise. If you are thinking of running, look at these 4 names and ask yourself if you still want to run.

Good luck to all who run!

For the rest of us - VOTE!!! If you don't know who to vote for - EDUCATE yourself so that you can make an educated selection! This isn't just a popularity contest people, this is for the future of our sport! (at least for the next year) IF you don't vote you have no room to b!tch about ANYTHING the BOD does!!!

I agree with you on that one, Steve. Need new bodies and cookers on the BOD! This is the first I've heard about Jeff running. Thanks, Jeff, for letting me know!!!!

Absolutely!

I can only speak for myself, but I'm not asking for anyone to give me their vote. I'm just asking for the opportunity to earn it. I'll start putting my thoughts and goals out for scrutiny soon, with the majority coming out after the Jack. If you or anyone else has any questions or suggestions I'd love to hear them. I can't promise to always agree but I can promise to always listen and give every idea fair consideration.

Thank you all for your good wishes. If elected I'll do my best to open up KCBS and the BoD to the members. If any one has any comments or thoughts that you'd like to pass on to me, send me a PM & I'll get back as soon as I can.

That's close to 5% more than in the previous election when I ran. But you are correct--- still needs to be MUCH higher, especially given the simplicity with which it can be done.

I believe that it's 4 in both cases.

I appreciate everyone who is running and giving their time for the betterment of BBQ. Personally one thing I would like to see from The Board in general is less "closed sessions". I am sure there are important things done discipline decisions or whatever but it sure seems that there are a LOT of "closed sessions" for a public organization

I only have one other issue but those decisions may have been made years ago, before I became a member so I would have no right saying anything on it, but I sure hope I hear it brought up by someone .
