2010 Big Bang Open Final Results and Series Standings

I wanted to personally thank all of the volunteers who helped with the weigh-in. Randy, Mark, Joe, Branon, Chiung, Mike, Laura, Scott and Kirsten. Without all of you, none of this could run as well as it does. Thanks again to Frank McCallister for all of your help with the database!

A big thanks goes out to Tony Grogan and Spearboard for putting on this fantastic tournament. That prize table was amazing and it's really heart-warming to see all of the support from the diving community and sponsors so we can have these great events.

Congratulations to all of the winners!

Great job by the weigh-in crew. The lines were moving fast - Disney could learn a thing or two from you.
