As a GOBS member in good standing I honestly can say I was shocked at the contents of the disclaimer. I had a fellow GOBS member in Omaha who received the information call me last night and read it to me. Because of the disclaimer they will not be competing in the contest and are looking for other contests for that weekend. I do not understand the meaning behind the disclaimer and have a few questions of my own.
1. It states, "This contest may be canceled or postponed by GOBS at any time prior to August 31, 2012 because of any circumstances that prevent the fair conduct of the contest or that are beyond the control of the GOBS organization." The first question that comes to mind is that the contest is before August 31, 2012 so how does this make sense?
2. It states, "In the event of the cancelation or postponement, refund of the contest entry fee will be considered on a team or individual basis; otherwise, neither the GOBS organization, nor any member of the Board of Directors or any GOBS member at large, accepts any liability, financial or otherwise, to any cooking team or individual participating in the 20th Annual Nebraska State BBQ Contest for the cancellation, postponement or change in sanction status of the contest." My question would be if something of this nature happens, then why would not ALL entrants be refunded in full NOT on a team or individual basis?
As a GOBS member I do not agree with this disclaimer as being fair and am wondering how many teams will actually enter "our" contest.
