Kentucky added two more contests this year!.. Seems Kentucky and Indiana have been holding their own, and slowly growing in events.

It looks like GA is adding a few. Our schedule can be even busier this year if we want it to be from all the GA events and the surrouning states.

North Carolina has added another 2-3 again this year.

Although one was cancelled last year, it seems that there is constantly 2-3 added each year.

Northeast dropped a few, but added a few new ones. We will probably cook around the same amount again. (19 last year)

Ohio went from 4 to 6 KCBS events. With the growth also in IN and KY, they are gaining popularity in the Midwest.

Nebraska is showing 9, same as last year and up from 6 in 2012. I think there is one yet to hit the schedule, so we should be at 10. There were 366 team entries in 2013, up from 234 in 2012.

I think the Md-Atlantic is about the same; some came, some went.

I agree that GA is adding a few contests, but participation (ie: # of teams) seems to be down.
