Ok. I guess I need to rant a bit. Most people who know me realize I'm not a ranter. However, even The Cannon needs to rant from time-to-time. Due to the last minute notices as to when this tourney is, I can never play it. This year is no exception. The weekend of 8/29 is packed for me. I really wanted to play this. I figured it was in October, as is typical (?). I know Lowell doesn't get on this forum, and Gordy (and Tuffi with her e-mails) is good enough to give people a heads-up. For folks that aren't married and particularly kid-less (and perhaps job-less) this may not be as big an issue. For us 40+ guys with lots of responsibilities and commitments outside of DG, this is very frustrating. For a disc golf tournament as old as this (the oldest from what I hear), there has to be more hoopla and more promoting!!
Come on Washington, what the hell! Not everybody is in Lowell's circles, and won't hear about any rumblings prior to the formal announcement. Can I encourage any commentary from WA/OR players ... Sam, Gawain, WA elderstatesmen/women? Is it just me ... I just don't get it.
