Agreed. They are clueless. Make one decision, worried about loss of $, then piss a bunch of people off, end up loosing more $$. Clueless I tell you.

I still can't figure out what the down side of doing this was. KCBS is acting more and more like NASCAR where it seems if KCBS (or MMA, but that's another discussion) doesn't make $1,000,000 on every deal they won't do it.

The downside was lack of control over message
The brothers at wiredbbq presented what worked for cooks at the Jack
It was like going to the Jack as a bud of a cook
There is a up and a downside to that approach
Yes I enjoyed it.... I sponsored it... and yes not all of it was good
Some was just like being at a cook off....... down right silly

Rather than work with wired on content it was easier to just say no thank you
Live webcast event coverage is something I hope to work on if elected

I didn't get to see the Jack but I did watch the Royal webcast. Some of the "in the field" bits was a little goofy, but I thought the awards were well done. While I understand what you are saying, I think the opportunities for sillyness at the awards banquet are far more limited - Unless they run out of food at the buffet again this year

OK - reality check. There are maybe 20 people on this thread talking about this. They may even have Pissed off another hundred. The BOD made a decision to control what is brodcast at a KCBS event. The Jack and Royal are not KCBS sponsored events. I agree with their decision. Having said that I also agree with Thom that the BOD needs to work on next year and have something in place well ahead that will work for everybody. Remember that the KCBS is now a million dollar industry with contests in the 4-5 million payouts so their image and brand are important

In this age of cell phone video recorders, anybody can make a recording and post it. I'm sure there would be some good ones at the after party but people recording them could be in peril, either then or after posting them on the web.

Maybe the KCBS should conduct a poll of members asking if they would watch a live video of the banquet if it was brodcast. My bet is not many would say yes.

Two questions, Candidate Ford:

1) All of the indications we have board members is that this was denied because (a) no other proposals were received and (b) it would hurt attendance at the banquet. Where are you getting the "control the broadcast" from? I'm not being critical, just curious if I missed something.

2) Why do you agree with the decision?

Yes I enjoyed it.... I sponsored it...


just to be clear I was only a CO SPONSOR on the Jack web cast

The wiredbbq guys had a MUCH greater investment in that production

I would in no way want to take credit for someone else's effort

I would like to thank Thom Emery for his help and support for WiredBBQ. His grasp of the benefits of using technology like webcasts, etc. to further the enjoyment and information of the barbecue world is a great asset. Through his efforts, WiredBBQ received more viewership than ever, which is a testament to what members would like to see more of. The Jack Daniels webcast would not have happened the way it did without his partnership.
I hope that he is elected to the BoD, and that his message of cooperation and advancement becomes the norm.

So if I voted for you, Ford, I could expect the same decision from you on something like this? What is your reasoning? Simply because not many people (in your estimation) would watch it? Does it really matter how many watch? KCBS would have ZERO investment in it.

Second question... just how do you figure someone will be put in peril for broadcasting at a PRIVATE party? I'm not scared.

Over 73,000 hits on WiredBBQ.com on the Saturday of the Jack Daniels event. That's your reality check.

Why is allowing friends and family an opportunity to view the banquet such a bad thing? What is anyone trying to hide? Why won't the BoD respond to our request? Why are there several variations of an explanation of the vote? What does "peril" mean? Why does this thread continue?

Just trying to lighten up this thread. I've seen some YouTube videos of folks at parties doing some really stupid things. It used to be it was a "private" party but it no longer is with all the technology in a cell phone and the websites to post it to.

Did you actually write the BOD for an answer? That's the only appropriate way to communicate with them. Posting on Forums is not.

To all those asking me questions on my post here's my opinion.

I have not listened to the MP3 of the meeting yet. I'd wish I had time to but I've been traveling from Florida to Chicago. So I don't know what was discussed. What I do know is that 10 elected BOD members all agreed on this topic so there must be a good reason. And we elected this BOD and they are running things so we need to try supporting the BOD instead of always tearing them down because we don't agree with how they vote.

If I'm elected to the BOD I will vote for what I think is best for the KCBS as an organization and for it's future. Some people will not agree with how I vote. That's just a fact no matter who gets elected. Hopefully all those elected will look at what's best for the KCBS not for them or a group of friends.

As long as I'm writing, I also believe that contests are the lifeblood of the KCBS and that means cooks, judges, reps, organizers and volunteers. But there's a lot more to the KCBS and it's time we start putting some of our money into what the KCBS is about. That's promoting BBQ and doing good deeds. After all the KCBS is a 501C isn't it.
