2467RE: [ccth] Re: ontario table hockey championships
- Jan 11, 2007Mike made a tough decision, but hopefully other players will gain some
appreciation of the tireless bullshit that organizers go through before
realizing that it just isn't worth it...
Mike has run a great event for 15 years, and has organized countless other
tournies in his time being associated with table hockey in Canada. My first
event I ever attended was at his tournament, and my love for the game grew
He could have 16 or 20 guys registered right now, but is tired of waiting
for the non-committal dumbasses out there who, every year, seem to string
you along as if they will come - seemingly needing to make up their mind
last minute! Why bother inviting someone 2 months in advance?
He has a hall to pay for, food to provide, and other details to organize...
as all the organizers do! I have had this conversation with Burt a hundred
times... it is very frustrating, and Mike has stepped up and done what the
rest of us have never had the gumption to do... send a message that you
gotta shut 'er down if people do not follow the registration guidelines. I
am disappointed, as I love that event, but appreciate Mike's position.
