    It's what Sam said. I was worried that someone who comes out of nowhere, with no experience, and wants to put on a tournament on short notice, might be looking for a quick buck or something. Or at the very least is vastly underestimating the amount of work it'll take.

    I've seen the anger and pissiness that tournaments can arouse in people when things don't go exactly according to someone's expectations (see Flipping Ze Disc, Oregon Series, et al.), and don't think someone should step into that unawares.

    Come out to Pier Park this weekend and see me at the Rose City Open. If you want to help out that is always appreciated but if you just want to talk for awhile about putting on a tournament that is fine too. I'll be glad to sit down with you for a bit and talk.

    I don't think there is anything wrong with what Adam is saying. He is saying it will take a lot of self-sacrifice without much personal gain other than the gratification one receives in doing for others. He is right about that. That said, there will be many who will step up to run tournaments because they like doing for others - regardless of the reward they get out of it.

    In fact I know that Stumptown could use some volunteers this weekend, you should at least attend.

    And I agree with Sam on this one.

    I agree with Scott. Go to some tournaments - even if you do not play in them - and volunteer to help out. At the least, you will come away with more knowledge and experience than you have now which will only guarantee you more success for when you do run one.

    What's the rush to have a tournament right now?

    Play in a few yourself first. You'll get a better idea of what makes a good tournament experience.

    First thing to do, take it from me...check the calendar... and realize that most of the summer events already scheduled were conceived and planned some months before they were to happen, wink, wink, think fall
