Jeez Anthony what the hell were you thinking running a tournament for people to have fun? People dont want to have fun Anthony. Why do you think they play disc golf? Don't you know that disc golf is meant to be competitive and mean, not fun? And to think you charged an ungodly amount... $5?! It's amazing that people even showed up! I mean... that could buy 2 cheeseburgers and fries at McDonalds! Or, 2 40oz Old E's that they could have carried around the course with them. Times are in fact tough Anthony... I think next time you should pay people to show up to your event from all that profit you make on the tourney. Hopefully you are still alive right now to read this and learn from it the easy way rather than the usual death by public scrutiny that is often the case in Disc Golf. I mean seriously... you think that the game being free other than buying a couple discs is enough to satisfy people? Or maybe they would have some new years cheer? I think not. And don't bother with the paper and pencil... all you need is a stick and some snow followed by a yellow underlining to highlight the situation. Cmon Anthony can't you be a little more organized like you have run dozens of tournaments before? You should be ashamed of yourself. I know you are already a dead horse but next time I see you I am going to beat the crap out of you.
If you leave a tournament, or league without arranging with the coordinator for payment if you win... tough crap... ITS YOUR FAULT! You know, I was pissed off the other day because I bought a lottery ticket that was a winner but misplaced it... and you know what? The gas station had the nerve to not keep track of their winning tickets so I was sol. Stupid gas station.
Ok... I know this is a little over the top and maybe this could have been avoided, and likely will next year, but seriously... stick around if you want to get paid. Don't blame other people when you are the one that left. It's your fault for coming to a 'FUN' layed back tournament and expected the US Open. If you want a tournamnet that is without flaws you might as well stay at home. Everyone has their .02 but no one wants to help implement their ideas.
