First let me make one thing clear. I do not really care if we gain clubs or not, now I think it would be fun but it is fun anyway. My reasons for bringing this up like I said, it has been brought up many times and I thought it would be a good thread to brainstorm a little about.
But you have brought up another question. Are you literally talking about loosing the trophy that can be replaced with a few dollars, or about the winning club not returning and defending.
I guess this all brings up another question, what are our goals for the Shootout? This is obviously a two fold question. What are the desires of the members and what are the desires of Owners of Ultimate Bass.com, you and Laurie. I believe that you and Laurie want what the members want, the two of you have always been in harmony with the members, that is one of the things that make the site so popular among the members. I would be interested in knowing what the members think.
I know that Trey said several times that he liked it just the way it is because it is more intimate and he knows almost everyone, if it got really big that would change somewhat. I am completely neutral, I think I would be happy either way.
What do the rest of you guys and girls think?
