also, throwing rock at d1.
I read something on his facebook that he was having a conference call with the hotel today/yesterday (can't remember) but as soon as that was settled he could figure out prize money.Has anyone heard anything about the prize money?
I've been gone a day or so an was wondering if Plank had said anything anywhere about it.
... he also said he won't really be logging in anymore... it looks like "at this time" was to soften the blowYou say not going to be any prize money at this time... but like... will there ever be any prize money? If the prize money as of now is going to the venue (as it seems) that means there is just straight up no prize money... so like, where could it ever conceivably come from?
Expecting turnout to pay prize money as a TO really isn't an acceptable way to run a tourney in the first place. Entry fees turn into prize money, venue fee goes to everything else. That's the way it's always been.I really hope everybody expecting to be paid clearly sees that he did everything in his power.
Ya that's a big part of why payouts didn't work out, but the plan itself was bad because it relied on basically getting lucky to ever have enough money to pay both the hotel and the players.He did mess up, I admit, but his error had really good intentions and it seems as though the only reason everything didn't work out was the community overstacking rooms (I was guilty of this as well) and/or just flat out flaking on their room reservations. His only real error was expecting a decent fraction of the people who said they were coming to come.
It ensures that this will never happen again.I'm sure he already feels terrible, being that to him this does inevitably make it a failure, so I don't see where people freaking out here is going to do anything productive.
Four score and about a month ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in happy feet, and dedicated to the proposition that all players are not created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their stocks that that some would be rewarded with prize money. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our pot monsters to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these players shall not have played in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of playment -- and that government of the smashers, by the smashers, for the smashers, shall not perish from the earth.
