Why do you want to be a part of this group?

I currently do the vast majority of my volunteer work for two fun non-profits. The first one is the Kansas City BBQ Society, the largest BBQ sanctioning organization in the world. I am a KCBS Certified BBQ Judge. This year I will be judging around 25 different competitions in a 15 county area in Kansas and Missouri. Being a BBQ Judge is a tough job. However, someone has to do it! :) The second non-profit is the American Royal. One of the major events that the American Royal sponsors is the World Series of Barbecue®. Each year, during the first weeked in October, over 550 BBQ teams, from all over the world, gather at the American Royal complex in Kansas City, MO. The World Series of Barbecue® is the absolute largest BBQ competition in the entire world. If you would like to find out more information about these great organizations, or if you would like to be sponsored as a member of the Kansas City BBQ Society, please contact me. I can give you all sorts of great insider tips.

My name is Ken. I live in the Northland. I have enjoyed volunteering with different organizations, on and off, since I was a teenager. I definitely enjoy giving back to the community, & helping others. The world can certainly use more volunteers!
