Please get informed and VOTE in the up-coming election! The future of KCBS is in the hands of the members who VOTE. Please don't not vote, then sit on the sidelines and complain. If you VOTE for the candidates whose platforms agree with your positions, you'll have a voice on the board of KCBS. Then complain, I guarantee the board does listen! But, please VOTE!!!

Thanks for the reminder. I was amazed at the low percentage of members who voted last year.

Some really good candidates on that list. Everyone needs to pay close attention. Should be very interesting.

Can I have 8 or 9 votes?

Since when and why does KCBS allow candidates to access personal information of members and send out an email "begging" for votes? Here is one I got Monday..... (BTW, when I got one last year and questioned it, I was told that it would not be allowed again).

I am running for the KCBS Board for another term and would appreciate your support

I want to be your voice in BBQ
I for the past 3 years have made it clear that you can call me on BBQ issues my number is (619) 600-8320, I am willing to discuss anything related to BBQ and KCBS
I eat, live and sleep BBQ, I was a competitor, I judge, I am a contest rep, I am also a judging instructor. I am retired and have the time to commit to my position on the board, I have nothing financial to gain, I am here to represent the membership as a whole
I currently am responsible for membership, membership is up 60% since I took on this duty 3 years ago.
I have an excellent voting record, I represent the membership.
I would appreciate your vote.
My phone number is: 619-600-8320
My e-mail is: ggoycochea@kcbs.us

This answer was posted by Gene on another forum that had a running discussion about the same topic

"I can settle this for everyone, this is not from any list of e-mails from KCBS that I do not have access to anyway.... this is a list of old and new e-mail lists of mine and many friends and organizers around the Country that are helping me..... I used to be the largest organizer, a friend of mine is now, between these lists, i sent out approx. 2600 e-mails yesterday, about 600 bounced back as old non existent, none are from KCBS or its database."

Thanks. If you or anyone else hasn't figured it out, I AM a very aggressive anti-spammer, and since I did not ask for any information from Gene, that is just exactly what that is classified as....

Thanks again for the answer. Now, how does one get their email removed from that list?????

still a bit discomforting.

i don't think a spammish tactic like that will get anyone very far.

i'm also not so happy to hear organizers sharing others personal contact info. i don't care if they were the biggest or smallest.

moreover, i think i'd ask for a list of those "organizers helping" to be sure i don't ever give them personal info again.

that should be part of the contract for an organizer that they will NOT sell, give, or trade any personal information of cook teams, judges, reps or any other person that is associated with the event.....

Boogie,
I couldn't agree with you more. While nothing illegal happened, something unethical did happen. I wondered how my name got into someone else's hands and now I know. Do we have to ask that a privacy clause be put in every registration now to keep people from sharing for unethical practices? Add a check box that allows people to share our information? I WOULD HOPE NOT! Something about one bad apple...
I guess desperate times call for desperate measures!
