Of course it won't be easy but with the dollar signs now showing up in competition barbecue, it's just got to be done. KCBS will need to foot most of the expense and organizers may have to perform another step or two. I'm one and I'm willing to do so if need be. The whole process has been neglected for too long because KCBS wasn't seeing the bigger picture. We've been too busy fighting over neopotism, banning people, witch hunts, books and what-not rather than taking a look at where we're headed and planning for the future while putting systems in place to facilitate a smooth transition from the time KCBS was just a small group with a couple handfuls of contests to an organization sanctioning over 300 contests each year and generating a lot of revenue. Now, all of the sudden, we're large, we have a lot of money and we are scratching our heads wondering what happened while we were debating pork, parsley and propane. It's time to take this seriously and put in systems to properly track teams and their members and ensure the integrity of the sanctioning body and the contests under the KCBS umbrella.
