Thanks to Georgia
« on: January 19, 2011, 02:52:05 PM »
It's first year back the Georgia tournament was great.  Everything ran smoothly and efficiently, the buildings all had great debating rooms (tables, etc.), although we flew, it was still a very affordable tournament for us.  Meals/snacks/breakfasts were FANTASTIC.  I've never thought about a donut that has icing AND cinnamon toast crunch on it but they had them.  Also, they have a lounge with comfortable chairs and a large projector with play-off football.  Overall, we had a great time and would encourage folks to go next year.

Thanks to Casey, Will, Mike and all the bulldogs!

Just want to echo this -- great hospitality, competition and people on a very difficult weekend to host. Thanks to everyone who made it happen!

One more:  we also flew, and it was well worth it.  The competition was great, the amenities were plentiful, and Casey and his squad made our out-of-region group feel truly welcome.  If at all possible, we'll be back whenever they host in the future.

The hospitality was excellent, who brings in a barista in the mornings? That was a nice touch. The tournament ran on time and the facilities were excellent.

I'd also like to add that prelim rounds 1&2 as well as 5&6 were not released the evening before and this throwback to how tournaments used to be was appreciated- as well as the sleep associated with releasing these rounds in the morning.
