In Reply to: The drinking reps have been dealt with posted by drbbq on June 15, 2011 at 20:49:57:
Some posts in this thread have referenced not drinking until after judging is completed. This is a totally different issue from judges drinking. Reps are never supposed to drink at a contest at all.
This is actually a Rep Advisory from the board. This is the only place this rule appears that I know of.
4.66 Drinking Alcohol by Reps & Loitering with teams
Question: Is it OK to sit and visit with a team and drink?
Opinion: No! Actually, there are two issues here.
Visiting with a particular team— sitting and visiting with one particular team gives the appearance of favoritism. Reps are encouraged to walk around the cooking area and introduce themselves to all the cooks.
Drinking on the job— The KCBS Board of Directors has voted to prohibit Drinking While Repping. The KCBS has a contractual obligation with the Contest Organizers to provide onsite supervision of the contest and the judging. Contest Organizers have invested months of planning and thousands of dollars putting together a contest. Cooks have spent years honing their skills; invested thousands dollars in equipment; and traveled hundreds of miles to get to a contest. As representatives of the KCBS, we have a job to fulfill and drinking alcohol impairs our ability to perform our job.
