Again, running away is not always the answer. If "some" would quit trying to kiss up to current and possible future power brokers (aka BOD members) and actually LISTEN to what's being said by them and watch with a critical eye what's going on an honest person would have to agree there's some underhanded stuff going on and ask..nay DEMAND change (a little DC lingo for ya).
People filing complaints with KCBS about other participants at comps they're not even attending is just one dishonest issue. There is a cabal brewing, kind of an un-holy alliance that is being set up with an eye to excluding from events anyone who disagrees or is not liked by this group. Sound crazy? Not when you've heard it being said! It's been done a couple of times so far with great success, maybe these were test cases?
Don't worry though, if you're not in their sights it don't matter to YOU right?
So no, I won't just "go away" or find another group. I believed in KCBS, loved judging and participating in the process and had looked forward to helping to make the process better, smoother and identified some holes in the process that could allow cheating. There's a lot of money now that can be won (or stolen) and that tends to change people.
My bad I guess...
