I hope they hold to their word and get carpeting in. The "practice" area has 24 tables. That will spread things out a bit. Should lead to more big sets being played. Hopefully people will bring their wallets and hearts. We need to bet it up people.
I have never been to either the SBE or the DCC but will be attending one or the other. I have pretty much decided to go to the DCC. It seems very exciting and I was sick last year reading about it but unable to go.
