Default KCBS Membership tops 10,000

Not sure how important this milestone actually is but thought I'd pass along to those who have not seen it. According to the KCBS homepage there are 7800+ CBJ's.

http://www.kcbs.us/news.php?id=81

I thought the last paragraph was a bit lacking or telling depending how you look at it for a media release talking about the growth in membership.

In America (yes, the organization has international members), the annual membership fee is only $35 for an individual and $50 for a family. Members get voting rights, board access, recipe assistance, a monthly newsletter on all things BBQ, as well as discounts on barbeque classes and hotel fees.

MMA must be pretty happy as they get paid based on new members as part of the deal.

I could be mistaken, but doesn't MMA only get a commission on new members who sign up via the Web or in response to an MMA promotion?
