No, no restriction on that. You just can't cook in two locations that have turn ins on the same day. It's a team event, not a personal competition, right? The new scoring system turns KCBS into a personal event, not a team event.

Software guy here. I could have this written in days, not weeks or months. Including a full REST based api. Does anyone have an idea of the specs? If I had a copy of those I would write this thing for them for nothing.

I've always felt that we could get this and a lot of other stuff done well, fast, and cheap if we just asked properly. KCBS has 16,000 members.

Maybe you should email the BOD and make this offer.

them building out a proper API would be an awesome development for bbqrace.com and nationalbbqrankings.com and my wheels are spinning thinking of the amazing reporting that we could do on the information once it was all opened up.

My thoughts exactly and an open api would be the reason I would donate my time to something like this. Just a plain old http based system so developers could pull and spin the data as needed. A Kcbs system would be the trusted keeper and repository for the data allowing others to develop consistent applications. Win win for everyone.

Does the Kcbs have a technology steering committee of any kind?

The KCBS comittees are typically a board member and a couple of his/her friends. The interaction with the entire membership is pretty limited. But you know, this would be a great way to start a positive change.
The obstacle is probably an existing contract.

Candy Weaver is the President so she'd probably be a good place to start. cweaver@kcbs.us If you get directed to the Executive Director (where many good ideas go to die) let us know and we'll find you a BOD member willing to help.

IBM 370-145 1/2MB memory I could still wire a board for the sorter if need be. LOL

I contacted the entire board with the same offer. I received one reply that was supportive. I then swapped a few emails with another member who, in the end, basically told me KCBS has it handled. Thanks but no thanks.

Good luck.

I will send out an email with my bona fides, offer to help, and let them take it from there. I'm not trying to ruffle any feathers. I just think something like this done correctly would add to our experience as cooks and help competition bbq grow. Change is hard for various reasons so I'm sure my results will be the same as yours.

My guess is you will get the same response. As another IT guy who is also a KCBS member, I agree this project should have taken 6 months, tops. I think it is a combination of lack of experience with IT projects on the boards part coupled with the consulting firm over selling it's capabilities. Maybe what it would take is a few members requesting to speak at the next board meeting to ask some questions about what is going on?
