Short Bus Russ - C Player
Naw, one of us knows the scene around here and it isn't you.
If you have a good pool scene in your area, as I said, you should consider yourself lucky and stop complaining. You actually have a tournament director out there still trying to make it happen for the players, without making himself miserable in the process, so he makes a rule or two.
As I said, there are a LOT of areas of the country that don't have it as good as you, and a lot of players who give their best piece of Kamui chalk to have what you are complaining about.
And people say the population is getting more and more self-entitled... Pshaw...
