I agree 100% and I may show up just to socialize if nothing else if I can. September is a tough month for me however.I'm not saying this derogatorily, but you could walk the damn thing and still not come in last if your shooting is half decent. and even if you came in dead last, at least you showed up.
For me, most of these things are 12+hours drive so I'm a little selective. If RnG was a regular thing within 4-5 hours, I'd do a lot more. I don't go to compete against others, just myself. Im not in the shape I was 5-7 years ago, but I'm doing OK for becoming an old guy lol. Beer has become my arch nemesis.
If it is relatively close, the only reason not to be there is you didn't get in, and then you can get on the waitlist. Honestly, if this was only a 2 hour drive or so for me, I'd go to this match just to be there even if I couldn't run it.
We always have a big family party here on Labor Day weekend. For work every year, I put on a 5-day Mining Electrical Engineering seminar for customers, which starts two Mondays after Labor Day. I teach several of the EE segments myself, but I am also the MC and coordinate the entire event. The week before the EE school requires lots of final prep, plus I'm still trying to accomplish my regular "day job" while that all happens. On a purely personal note, September is also dove season here
Adding other commitments to September is a challenge.
