To those who are the complainers, you need to help run one of these tournaments from begging to end. These folks work very hard and sweat out all the details just so others can have a great event.
If your are not going to help and get involved, shut-up and keep it to yourself.
To those who run these events, Thank you!

Phillip and others,
As an organizer and volunteer of these events and Stumptown in general I have to say that I want people to ask questions and feel confident about their purchasing power. I don't want anyone to have to shut up or stop communicating, however complaining is never looked upon favorable in any situation. Constructive questioning and inquiry on the other hand are always welcome.
If you feel something is off and you have questions feel free to ask them. But please don't ask your buddy or the local yocal who has no clue about what the payout is and where the money goes. Ask someone involved in the event and if you don't like what you hear then don't participate in that event. Don't spread rumors and general hate, we are not the community for that. If you like that sort of thing perhaps pursue politics, they always can use another mudslinger.
