Thumbs up Congrats

Congrats to all the participants, particularly Scott and his gang for setting something of this magnitude up. Looks like a very large turn out. Wish I could have been there to meet some of the guys and gals.

One question:

How many freedivers if any entered?

Thanks!

I think we can all rest easy knowing one true thing that was proven in this tournament:

John Hermes (Spearchucker) has out-speared Capt.Jay (Awesome Angler) on both Spearboard Open's. I guess after all the friendly rivalry between the two it almost seems apparent to me that Spearchucker is more awesome than the awesome angler at spearing!

Thumbs up SBO Turnout was Awesome

What a great event.

The turnout and support was incredible. I knew it was going to be big, but I could not even have imagined the size and scope of the tournament. It blew me away. The venue was great, the people were great, and you can't say enough about everybody who worked hard to make it happen and all those people who participated.

Congrats, excellent job folks.

Personally, I really wasn't interested in the band playing. I thought the music they played was fine, but way too loud. I was interested in conversing with fellow spearfishing people and the band made that quite difficult. I believe a DJ playing an eclectic mix of background music would've been ideal. My 2 cents.

When I got home last night I made a list of several things I would change for next year, so, without tipping my hand too much, here are some of the basic things I told a sponsor I was thinking about changing this morning:

1. A DJ that can provide some atmosphere with background music, and enable better communication between sponsors and participants, and so that everyone can communicate better.

2. The weigh-in line will be under the small pavilion, so that persons in line will be protected from the sun.

3. A second weigh-in line.

There are several other ideas I have noted on how to improve things, and any suggestions are welcomed.

Musically, I thought the band was fine. It was just a little too loud for the size of the venue. You can't anticipate everything, still a stellar event!

Talking

What no prize for the worst boat? I had 4 guys bust butt to get less than 10 points.

Seriously,

We all had a great time, the venue was great and got too meet some great people.

THANK YOU SCOTT, for letting me be a sponsor and for such a great event.

CUDOS to Chris for busting ass in the weigh in. I am surprised you still have a voice.

Thank you all for stopping by and chatting with me even though I didnt have anything flashy to show.

Thank You to Denny and Carie for turning me on to the stress balls, now everyone got a chance to squeeze my balls and they seemed to keep the kids busy. Got tons more if anyone wants one.

I am proud to be part of this event.

THANK YOU ALL!
