Tom - I appreciate your comments and insights. Must say you are a gentleman and a class act. Thanks for laying the groundwork for this tournament over the previous years. I agree that it would be nice to see some new faces take the lead in local tournaments. I do wonder if some simpler non-sanctioned events wouldn't encourage more people to throw their hat (or fleece beanie?) in the ring and get their feet wet running a tournament. Kudos to Kris Cummings for running a nice one at Cherry Hill this summer.
