So glad this falls when it does. Makes me not so upset about not being able to go to Joplin for the second year in a row. I think it's a fair trade. Can't miss my buddies wedding esp since I'm the best man. But at least he is having it at quail ridge. Ha ha ha early round? Lol

No I really had a good time. You make very valid points though. If they were on the same day I probably go to Joplin. It's a great tourney overall. I was planing on going back but my buddys wedding is that weekend. I'm excited for this super tour though. Sounds like its gonna be BIG! I'm just happy there is another bigger tourney close to us the week before!
