RMBBQA assists events in all states surrounding Colorado. Not sure where you are from, but density and distances out here are dramatically different. NP gets from 1/3 to 1/2 half of its teams from Colorado. Also, a majority of its certified judges come from CO.
Not implying that all CO teams will forsake NP for Thornton. And in reading posts on other forums, there are other events with conflicts where teams will have to make similar decisions as well. These local events pay their money to KCBS, in part, to ensure that their draw is protected. KCBS took these event's money and then scheduled their conflicting events. The organization that is supposed to ensure equality (and gets paid handsomely to do so) looks the other way so that their (the organizations) interests are not suborned. In fact, BoD members that approved the conflicting dates and locations stand to personally benefit from their vote. That is what makes this whole mess so disgusting.
