GG, Yes, they can use the golden rule "he who has to gold makes the rules" it's their ball game not argument on that from me but we're not talking about the Royal as a wholly owned/operated arm of KCBS that is losing something if they allow these other sanctioning bodies to exist. Or are we? If we are then your analogy is correct, it would be against the best financial interests of the Royal to allow non KCBS bodies to survive. I'm unaware that the Royal is owned/operated by KCBS do you know something I and others don't?
Historically the Royal has been welcoming to all bodies so what changed and why now? Last year was no different than the year before or the year after so why basically insult and alienate a whole bunch of people now? How can this possibly be good for what BBQ is "supposed" to be about?
Admittedly, I'm not a competitor (yet) but a judge who is certified with several bodies including the most prestigious NTA (National Taco Association,yes it's real) so it affects me directly when events/bodies die or are killed off.
