Yes, it was a good trip and some NICE courses. The points will be good I guess, if I decide to go to Worlds. Congrats on the win for Tokio, despite the fact that he cant add and some people he played against just cant accept the fact that their disc didn't make it across a lake with a 420 carry into a headwind (although Jasons did, by about 2').
I have to say though, I really hope it was better in years past and they make it better for next year in terms of the preparedness of the TD and rules compliance, as well as just general organization and player programs.
We have it good here on that as well, I can't count the times that the TD of our pool who was also the main TD, missed a call, said he didn't care which way we played a situation, didn't have an answer and asked the first local that he saw, blatently disregarded rules violations, and too many comments like "I know it doesn't say that in the program, but thats how the locals play the OB on that hole". Way too much confusion and lack of organization for what is supposed to be the premier event or "Daytona 500" for AMs as it is described somewhere!?
Hopefully everyone that made the trip enjoyed it as much as I did, (those previously mentioned and Jonathan Ryder also- 7 ATL boys total I believe) but there is nothing like waiting around an extra 3 hours for a final nine and getting a disc (Jesper Lundmark-Striker 167) for last cash at 26th out of 180 people?!
Probably the last big tourney that I travel that far for since it was so poorly run. If anyone has any suggestions for 2 or 3 day tourneys within a few hours of ATL that ARE worth the trip for please suggest these, as I like to take the trips and play new and good courses but would definitely pass on something like this that I consider to be overrated, and just play well in more local tourneys to get my points.
On a side note, Kade, Scott and I had a bag tag challenge on the weekend, and I now have 002, Scott has 003, and I believe Kade retained 007? Is there a record for bag tag challenge fartherest from ATL?

IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW FAR IT MIGHT GO PAST THE BASKET, IF IT GOES IN.
