KCBS playing all of the roles of sanctioning body, membership association for cooks, supplier of the judges AND contest organizer will present some major challenges down the road.
The KCBS needs to recognize specifically who it's customer's are and be careful to not use it's resources to compete with their own customers.
Cooks, Judges and Contest Organizers are all customer groups for KCBS, so if they decide, as Ray is suggesting, to begin offering to act as contest organizers for hire for large contests and for contest series' then the inevitable conflicts of interest will create problems just as they would if any one organization played all of these roles in any competitive endeavor where fair play and money is at stake.
