First congrats to Killer B's for their GC and to Iowa's Smokey D's their RGC, Second it was great to meet everyone; what a field and yes, we got waffle-crushed coming in at 43rd.
Now for the other part -We were totally underwhelmed by this event; We heard stories of piles of goodies for the teams brought in on a flat bed; not this year - this year it was two pieces of beef. It's the $150k culmination of a national ladder tournament and we have to buy ice, then they jack us for 30% more when we go to settle? $10k local events give us ice. How about servicing the porta pots once? They were pretty nasty by Saturday; better yet, how about a couple of those trailer portable restrooms, at least for the ladies?
I know this reads petty and whiny but it's the Sam's Club Crown Jewel event, they can do better.
