. Well for one thing Jack..Last year I Volunteered for working one day., But ended up working every single day....And when I was looking at playing this year, I notice it was only 80 bucks to register.
I believe that I should have a right to know what the players pack is.
I didn't mean to probably come off as harsh as it sounded, this internot doesn't always promote the best tone inflections.
That being said, the gist of what I was saying or attempting to would be that it is still probably being decided. At times you don't know what all you are getting as a TD until a few weeks out from sponsors, last minute agreements, etc.... The history of the Wide Open is one that has almost always been a very generous players pack. To a point where the players pack gets bashed because the AM PAYOUT wasn't as strong as people would have liked because they got more in value on the players pack than they paid. This has happened and hence my own undertones of OMG the players pack question, seriously? History has jaded me in this respect and I fully admit it.
We need help, we always need more help. That is typical my response, when people ask how, I say go do and let us know what you can give to help make it better.
So since again things are just moving along now on the planning part suffice it to say it will be a cool players pack for certain that will as the last few years have indicated, exceed the value I took a little quip on it.
I am sorry if it cam across harsh, it wasn't my intent to single it out, but ultimately I am a big bully and as such I tend to tower and throw all this abusive speak on the internet that some take as personal, when in fact it is just attempting to create dialogue about other endeavors to make this event even better.
I personally thank you as well for helping out last year. I barely remember the event but I am all to cognizant of the efforts of many to give a little time and how impactful it is even if someone can only help for an hour, hell 30 minutes, trust me it helps. For that to take one day to give, and spend 3 AWESOMENESS is yours, and please accept my apology as it wasn't directed towards you as such, but rather trying to get our local scene to a better realization of just how much energy is needed to make this event. It is a tough hill to climb when dealing with an all volunteer group to make it happen.
Apologies to those that it offended, now get volunteering!
