We need to play more tournaments.
That is an astute observation that goes for all of KC, actually. I think we tend to stay close to home too much; play events locally on courses we're comfortable on. Personal experience showed me that traveling, even if just 3-4 hours from home, improved my game and competitive resolve. i.e. motivation to actually practice, not just attend leagues here and there. It's always been perplexing to me that the KC area doesn't regularly have top card players at big tourneys. I think the volume of tournaments available here now is helping to raise the overall quality of players in KC. But I believe road tripping is necessary to push our best players to the next level.
