A training school to become an official Kansas City Barbeque Society event judge will be held at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Huron March 28 from 10am-2pm.
Following the judging school, a table captain class will also be held. Taking the class will result in becoming a certified KCBS table captain.
Registration for the judging school is $85. Registration for the certified table captain class is $40 and participants must be a certified judge. The deadline to register for the classes is March 20.

The classes teach the art and mechanics of judging and at the end of the class, participants be a certified judge. Those active or interested in becoming active in competitive BBQ may also consider taking the class as it teaches what the judges look for when judging.
