As much fun as I have had hanging out with Mr. Dodge this year, reading this thread makes me miss his humor.

As far as questions go. I second all the X-Link Fusion questions. And to add to them:

What have been some of the difficulties in getting Fusion to work and what is being done to get around these problems?

As far as other questions:

What do you see as Vibram's role in growing and supporting disc golf in the future?

What can Vibram do to help get Disc Golf on ESPN (or the Four Letter Network as the sports talk radio shows refer to it as out here if they are not a part of the four letter network)?

Why does Vibram have such high standards for shops that want to sell their discs?

That is all that I have for now.

Here's another one for Steve.

Why are the x-link soft molds only made once a year?

My question is about Vibram's overall strategy.

For the big two, the marketing/brand image strategy seems to mostly be sponsoring the best players so that new players see top pros throwing their discs. Vibram potentially has access to orders of magnitude more money, but hasn't sponsored players in the same way. Is that in the plans for the future (meaning world champion caliber players) or is Vibram conciously deciding to focus marketing dollars elsewhere? Is holding the best tournaments an alternate strategy?

Is it true that you are sending Team Vibram to the European Open next year?

Enjoyed the interview last night. It was interesting to hear about the relationship, or lack there of between Vibram & Innova/Discraft.
