What he said....though if you want to play competitive PDGA events that weekend  ::) instead of enjoying time in a park playing the sport with music, and friends, food, and good times, then I can see why you would want to go there.......Thread hi"Jack" indeed! ;D

Any idea why there is essentially nobody signed up for open? 4 players, 4 days away from this event? I assume EMAC will be playin vibram instead this year... But this thing had a great turnout last year

Ya I realize that is true for the KC crowd. I want to play this tournament though because I can't play AM worlds next summer due to the fact that it is the same weekend as my wedding. So, my question on turnout (aside from the KC crew) still stands.

It's not as big as the GBO, because it is later in the year, and kids first week of school, etc.....end of summer vacations.....the people from the Olympics are still suffering jetlag.....

Just wait there may be some Oklahoma sign-ups.  But Emporia is a destination location only when it makes sense, and there are a lot of other events that people played in the Summer, so its tougher to fill this time of year.  Now after September and October it gets a little easier, but people go back to school, etc, so you see a more regionalized crowd than you do earlier.

Too many people going to a far superior event... *cough* LDOX *cough*

Of course this could be the more realistic reason though....
