    Becoming a Contest Rep

    After competing, judging, table captaining and all related KCBS contest functions, I've started training to be a contest official. Two weeks ago, I had class number 1 in Plant City, Florida. It was more difficult than I ever expected it to be! I trained with 3 of KCBS' best contest reps and learned (and worked) very hard.

    I'll have to RAT (rep apprentice trainee) for 4 contest. I've done Plant City, next will be Las Vegas (December 12-13), then Young Harris, GA (February 6-7, 2015) and I'll finish up in Washington, MO (April 17-18, 2015). After that, if accepted into the rep corps, I'll be on probation for 4 more contests. I've picked my RAT events very carefully. I want to train with reps that I respect and know (as a cook and a judge) that run a quality contest.

    Hope our paths cross out on the contest trail!

    What do you do as a rep? Run the contests?

      Pretty much. Make sure KCBS rules are followed. Monitor the judging area, keep the clock for turn ins, run the cooks and judges meetings, enter scores, produce score sheets, post results, attach comment cards, disqualify entries, etc.
