Default MMA and KCBS

Hi,

Iím setting up an interview with Mike McCloud of MMA for the Home of BBQ website. I would appreciate your feedback on what questions you would like to see answered. I realize that there is most likely no need to state this, but I want to make it clear that this is NOT going to be an ambush interview. Iím happy to ask any questions that are relevant, but there wonít be anything with acrimony or rancor included.

Suggestions for polite, appropriate questions would be appreciated. I wonít purposefully avoid any topics or concerns, but I will be framing questions in a genial fashion.

I appreciate your help,

Eric

What are the benefits of MMA for the established KCBS cook? Not a new cook, but one that has competed for a few years. I would also like to know what the benefit of that Road Show is going to do for us cooks. Or is this another way to recruit new judges?

Thanks,

Good luck getting him to answer about KCBS benefits.

And I agree with Clay. That question answered truthfully will be worth its weight in gold.

I'd like to know McCloud's vision of where he sees KCBS, a non-profit, in five years, ten years and 20 years.

Does he still envision an organization where the little guys like us can compete and have a chance to knock off the big boys each week or will the little guys get pushed aside?

Why are so many people trying to deal with MMA. Doesn't KCBS still run the association or is there something we don't know yet? I found myself asking that many times at the banquet as MMA was answering so many questions?

Im honestly wondering who is in charge here?
Im just a dues paying member wondering whose in charge? Is this a unfair question? I dont think so.

Inquiring minds want to know. Pretty simple in my mind.

Thanks for taking the time to speak with them.

Don't know a whole about about him or his style. A good question I always like to ask is why does he want the job? What does he want to bring to KCBS that someone else couldn't. What is the message of the non-KCBS members that is different from other organizations.

Unless you have an offical relationship with the KCBS board, I wouldn't expect him to answer many questions related to KCBS. Maybe membership benefits and general trend over the years, but I doubt you will hear much on MMA's and the KCBS board strategy for the future. Plan on hearing very polite, politically correct answers with little substance - it is an election year after all.

Based on his time at the podium at the KCBS banquet, my bet on his answer will be money: prize $ and sponsors.
