Good musings, Ray. There may indeed be some sort of "transition" in larger, high-dollar contests where contestants (who would foot the bill for the cost of the judges) might not be so averse to the cost. Also, KCBS current governance methods must move from the current free-for-all chaotic hoo-haa of the board handling daily management to a true professional strategic board with responsible managers at the helm. This may take a while.
The barbeque hobby needs a strong professional sanctioning body and, right now, KCBS is the semi-dominant one. If it is to succeed in becoming "the" factor (and face challenges like the judging one you discuss, among others) people with vision and knowledge of organization must step forward and lead.
