All IBCA Members,

On March 12, 2016 there was an incident involving IBCA members at the Turn N Burn cook off in Pleasanton, Texas.  After reviewing the incident the Board felt like there were some offenses that warranted discipline action.

For his actions in the incident Gerald Maynard resigned from the position of Pit Director of the TXBA Pit.  The Board of Directors unanimously accepted this resignation.

For his actions in the incident the Board of Directors voted to give Justin Margist a lifetime suspension from the IBCA.  This was done with more than the 2/3 votes needed to pass such a penalty.

Fellow members the Board would like everyone to know that there is no place in our community for inappropriate conduct and/or actions which reflect negativity to the IBCA.

Thank you,

Craig Sharry

IBCA Executive Director
