Default Okthorwberfest 2019?

So Okthrowber will be upon us in 14 days and I haven't seen a single post about the dye contest! Will we have an 11th annual Okthorwberfest?

It seems that participation the last few years has dwindled and interest in dying disc in general seems to be fading at least that is the trend that I see here on DGCR.

So whats up? Whats happening? Where did all of the dyers go? Anybody have any thoughts? Is Okthrowberfest dead?

Nothing. Nothing. Home. No. Probably.

Being a little more serious: Okthrowberfest was dead when Bennett left. Noill put in a valiant effort to keep it alive, but it needs a dyer to run it with the energy that Bennett had for it. He put SO much time into (gathering sponsors, promoting it here and elsewhere, doing a huge payout spreadsheet, not to mention participating), and really made it what it was almost single handedly.

Once he bailed, I figured this would happen sooner than later.

You and me both. But it was more fun when Bennett was here and there were like 30-40 entries. The last couple years weren't up to standard. I wasn't likely to do it this year anyway.

Don't give up guys! Noill could still have something in the works.
I don't think there was anything posted this time last year.
OctNovDecthrowberfest seems to get going a little later each year, which is fine by me. Cold weather is for disc dyeing, warm weather is for disc throwing.

(I may be overly optimistic because I have already started some dyes. It would be a real bummer if Okthrowberfest went away.)

If no one from previous years wants to run it, I will.

It won't be like Bennett, so don't expect it. But I will collect discs, post pictures, and threads, and handle payouts. If people would like this let me know and I will create a thread and begin setting up entry information.
