If the "true overall results of the contest are not reflected", how can this contest be considered as a qualifier?
Yet, Jack qualified it as a good contest!

Mistakes are made every year and they are usually corrected.

I'll try to explain how SYD was included. Yes, SYD did win 7 GCs with the ABQ event quite controversial to say the least. Even the team was not sure if it would count or not and that is why we went to Clearlake. It was not until after reviewing the application from the Jack people did we realize that a large misperception (on everyone's part,including SYD) had occurred.
Bullet 5 states, the contest must have a min of 25 teams competing and a state proclaimation. The official IBCA website shows the contest had 27 teams. So, that made the contest an official qualifier.
The general bbq population believes that a contest must have at least 25 turn-ins of all required meats. That is a misconception. The Jack current Jack rule (bullet 2) indicates only the GC had to have cooked all the required meats. Only by reading the language in the Jack application would the general bbq population realize that. That was the misconception that we all were working under and why SYD went to Clearlake.
I hope that helps to explain it.
Explain this, posted by Lynn from IBCA on the Monday after the contest:
"The decision has been made and parties notified that due to the circumstances of errors made by the IBCA rep and Promoter that this event didn't have the qualifying number of trays turn-in to make it a qualifying State Championship. The Grand Champion, Harry Soo, has been contacted and said that he understood completely."
Why were you "unsure if it would count or not". You knew that the contest wasn't a qualifier on June 29 yet you submitted it to Jack Daniel's anyway hoping they wouldn't notice. Apparently you guys feel that if you don't like the rules, or the way something turns out, you can just bend the rules to suit yourself. I wish I knew back then what I know now. I would have handled the situation quite differently.
