World's has been picking up in the last few years. It might be cool to settle on a Lemon Lake/NorCal/North Carolina/(someplace else) rotation and keep going back to these places that are putting on the big World's on a consistent rotation. You could then focus more on those three sites and it will be easier to run a quality event. The one year in the rotation that you do take bids should attract a lot of attention. You should have several quality bids to choose from instead of one or two so-so bids.
That is totally true. I was at both of these World's, in '94 as a Course Director and in '95 as a Videographer for Disc Golf TV. And I guarentee you that the second year was better than the first! LL is a World Class disc golf facility on par with any and Brian and the Red Roc crew are very experienced and highly motivated.

There in lies the truth, without a group of people who are willing to work hard, for a long time, at that particular moment, with little thanks or compensation, you can't put on a Worlds (or any other large event).

I'm sure that Brian and the guys will make LLW2 even better than the first. If there could be one improvement from last time (IMHO), it would be to have a larger venue for the flymart, last time's site seemed a bit cramped.
