I was mistaken about the placement. I would have placed 4th in Masters, or 5th in general. The cash/prizes I could really care less about. CCDG did contact me to rectify the situation/come up with a solution. I thank them for that.
As i said before it just felt crappy to be left out. No harm no foul...its not like it was intentional. Just could have been handled better. All that was wounded was my feelings, and I can quickly get over that.
