BABS Open Contest

Statement from the LABBS Board:

The LABBS Board was not involved in the decision made by the BABS Board to hold open contests at the BABS convention in May 2024. The LABBS Board was informed of the decision before it was announced but was not consulted. The LABBS Board wrote a formal letter to the BABS Board explaining that while the LABBS Board has no fixed objection to open contests in principle, there are a number of concerns about doing this at this time without prior consultation. The BABS Board decided to continue with the plan.

The LABBS Board wishes to make clear that it would not make fundamental changes to established LABBS contests or events without prior consultation with LABBS members.
