Sanctioning Committee Report
There is one event that has not submitted paperwork that we believe would like to have a competitor series event. If they still have not contacted KCBS, we would guess that they do not wish to sanction under KCBS.

Education/Communication Committee Report
  1. We discussed the official judges Facebook page and how we are at 714 members and growing.  We also talked about the sniping on social media from people who cook 4 or 5 competitions over a year period of time and wonder why their cook is not in the groove and they did not score as high as they should.
  2. We talked about a cook team complaining about how they used a famous cook teams rub, sauce and exact instructions and wonder why they came in 95th out of 125 teams. The missing items were, different cooker, different wood, and chicken from a different farm.  With all the chatter maybe it should just be kept at chatter with no response.  
  3. We talked about organizers and how they are easing into the program.  Some of the early ones are waiting for most of the bugs to be worked out.  They are staying with the old systems they know and have worked with for years.  Change will happen, it will just be slow.
  4. We discussed “what are this committee’s goals.”  We hope that a scope or plan can be developed.
