Nova mentioned me yelling at the crowds instead of a PA system. I did have one. Sunday was a crappy day for me. I came under an abrupt illness that shut me down for most of the morning/day. I worked through it slowly. At the moment we should have been setting up the PA, it was beginning to rain and I was just coming around to life again. I could barely see straight and I had not eaten since the morning breakfast that did me in. I didn't get my crew assembled and I didn't even know what to do with the rain coming down. I didn't know if it would last and I wasn't going to risk borrowed equipment that I had no room in my budget to replace. Things happen and that day everything seemed to happen at once. Sorry about that too.
A simple solution to this problem of rain is to have a megaphone as a backup to the PA system. I was at a boy scout camp with about 300 people today and they had a $10 megaphone that worked great. A good megaphone is about $30. Anyway, just an idea. No complaints.
I have volunteered as a spotter a couple of times and I want to say that the everyone treats spotters like royalty. Plus, you see some amazing things like McBeth throwing a horrible shot - shocking. Of course he still pared. I saw Gibson have a bad shot and fall on his butt and slap the ground - imagine your two year throwing a fit. Immaturity at its finest.
It's cool when top pros like McBeth thank you. So just go and volunteer!
Great work everyone. Proud to be KC!
