You have it backwards. KCBS sells an organizer a service. Sanctioning. Organizers pay for the sanctioning so they can have a quality event. Most want anyone with an entry fee to be able to enter.
Most unsanctioned events tend to have smaller entry fees, and may or may not have lower prize money.... If someone chooses to pay an entry fee and come to an organizers event, they have paid for the right to have "consistent rules, scoring system, hard working KCBS reps and guaranteed prize payout and an overall fair contest"..
That is what their entry fee buys them. Ideally, if KCBS is doing the job they were paid to, which is manage the scoring/judging of a contest, and they do a GREAT job, it will make folks want to join.
The entry fee the contestant paid is what entitles them to all good stuff. The organizer is paying for that sanctioning..
