Thanks for a really good discussion. Maybe I'm overthinking it, but this has the makings of a bureaucratic time consuming PIA. Let' see...
1. Each team would register with KCBS, identify its team members by name, and receive a team number. OK, scroll forward to a contest...the reps must check team ID number, verify onsite team members against the KCBS team roster. (How many team members are onsite at that moment, how many are not there yet or how many off-list "team members" are "hiding" offsite until after the inspection is over?) How many surprise check-backs does a rep make?
2. When a team submits an entry to an organizer, the team includes its KCBS team number. Then, the organizer accepts the registrtation/entry and maybe provides a confirmation number (much like a hotel reservation confirmation number) that the team gives to the rep to verify/ensure that a team is who they say they are. What if they're not? What if a team adds an extra or new person at the last minute due to the absence of a regular teammate? Then what? And, on and on!
How would you propose to handle all this checking and verification...maybe start the event a day early or perhaps require an additional rep or two? Who foots the additional expenses? The organizers certainly won't want to.
This is just a start, I'm sure there'd be more. I understand the problem trying to be solved, but it won't be an easy solution IMHO.
Good Q'en On Ya'. John
