Glass Blown Open started to be held the same weekend, Trilogy is born, and Emporia becomes the dg Holy Grail for ams. Smallest field in the last 3 years was just under 1100 players, largest just under 1400. Field is being cut in half for what originated as a big amateur tournament and became a big pro event everybody complains about because of the golf course and 30mph winds.

Maybe it’s a bigger deal where I’m at because we’re smack in the middle of BG and Emporia, both just a couple hours away. People would take a week off work and make it a big dg vacation.

In order to meet the DGPT guidelines changes had to be made, effectively cutting out the people who built your event from the ground up. Those are the things that will stick out with people and make them never want to come back.

All I’m saying is growing pains are coming.
It seems these big tournaments will need to start hosting the AM event on a different weekend. I know that's what OTB Open did last year and it appeared to be successful.

Weird, especially considering that Ricky is signed up.

If I was DD and just dropped a half mill on a player, I would want them at all of the big tournaments.

Regardless of who is sponsoring it.

And for the first time in a VERY long time. . ALL of the top 10 rated FPO players in the World are signed up to play in Las Vegas
Eveliina had like 6 events planned for the US run. Excited to see how that goes.

Loads of MPO too from Finland with US plans early in the year. Hopefully someone makes some waves.

Doesn’t (didn’t) she throw a Heat?

Maybe if you don’t get Leopard3’s you’ll get some color glow Sidewinders or Roadrunners.

Omicron might throw early plans to travel to the U.S. out the window.

Would work for me, already have my color glow Leo 3's covered and could use some flippy drivers.

I have been skeptical of their chances but perhaps Omnicron has helped in this regard. It has swept through the country way faster than experts predicted and supposedly has hit its peak this week in the US. If this is true, numbers should be drastically lower next month and going forward until the next variant surge. Just saying it's possible the timing will coincide with the valley of infections and restrictions will then loosen... Well we can all hope anyways.
