Over the last 48 hours I heard the following complaints about the upcoming Doeberl Cup.
1. Internet only info. Why no leaflets? Even the legendary Lloyd Fell, who hasn't missed a single Cup for nearly half a century, was reportedly upset by lack of direct mail material. Well, we can't have a Cup without Mr Fell. Thankfully, he's in the major.
2. Too many low rated players in the premier section. In fact, the rating cutoff for the top section is only 1800. Too low?
3. (Actually, this one's a question). Will all participants have to pay up and join an association if they're not already members?
All that aside, I can't wait for next week. See you there.
