KCBS Team Bios


Year Started: 2005

KCQ started in 2004 with a few friends and a LOT of booz.....

Since then we have become a much more competitave team and still appriciate a good snort once in a while.

We do about 6-10 contests a year and at least get 1 call in 1 catagory each time. Just cant seem to put them all together!

If your a new team my only words of wisdom is dont give up.... Jhe judges are krazy they dont know what they are tasteing....BUT Get help from an existing team that has some good history there are many of us out here that can help, and most of us will.
