Proposed Rule Change Motion - Rule #2

Share this article:
May 21, 2018
Rule 2 currently reads "A cook team shall not compete in more than one KCBS sanctioned contest under the same team name, on the same date." The intent of the rule was to prevent teams from manipulating the system by competing under the same team name in different locations, on the same day, in an attempt to receive points. This proposed change would allow teams to compete in two competitions on the same day to earn points as long as the competitions are held at the same location. If approved, the committee also proposes the rule modification become effective immediately.

During the June meeting the Board of Directors will consider a motion on the below proposed changes Rule 2.

Existing Rule #2

Rule #2

2) Each team shall consist of a chief cook and as many assistants as the chief cook deems necessary. A team shall not compete in more than one KCBS sanctioned contest under the same team name, on the same date. Chief cooks and/or assistant cooks may only cook for their designated team at the contest they are attending.
