KCBS Clarifies Entry Fee SuggestionsFebruary 11, 2008 At the February board meeting, the KCBS Board of Directors discussed in detail the recent suggestion for contest organizers to raise entry fees for non-KCBS teams. To help clarify the request, the Board would like to re-emphasize that this suggestion is totally OPTIONAL by organizers. After listening to organizer concerns at the Annual Banquet, there is NO intent on making this a mandatory program in 2009.
Like many of our new efforts, changes and modified programs, the Board simply wants to study the impact of this optional process in 2008. While it was intended to provide a benefit to the many KCBS teams competing at KCBS events, the Board recognizes that it may present challenges for organizers. So after the 2008 season, we plan to study this voluntary program to see if it deserves future consideration or not. We extend our appreciation to those events who are testing the program in 2008, and we apologize for any confusion due to our previous communications on the matter.
