Because the host is a nice man and appeared to have a good tourney
lined up. Glad it happened.

I'm comparing them to tourneys that were prominent when I started RSG,
in particular RSG-Atl. It seemed that there were more tourneys then,
attended by many from RSG, with lots of talk in RSG. Nowdays, I don't
see that. I don't recall any discussion of the So-Cal event. Perhaps
it was more of a C-list event.

Did we just have an civil exchange of ideas? ;>

Funny thing....I don't remember these exchanges. Do you, Rob?

Nope. I was booted.

Just like he was not planning to go to RSG-NW before he

That's another lie. We had no plans to attend. We didn't attend the
prior year. It simply wasn't as much fun as the earlier events, for
reasons I've stated before.

Another lie. I told Rob that not being in the C-list was no big
deal.....more trouble than it was worth.

Hegemony? Get serious.

Lies...lies....lies. There have been several instances of your
cronies coming out of the woodwork on hot threads and rallying around
you. Tell me that you haven't been e-mailing folks about this. You
use to e-mail me when you were pissed with Rob or Eric.

He knows the truth and has the guts to stick by it.

If you thing RSG has become a bad place to get golf information, let me tell
you, this is a perfect example of how it's a REALLY bad place to get

Which is exactly why I received a Yes, No, Yes, No series of
committments from Greg in terms of his attendance for RSGNW 05 in the
span of about 3-4 weeks prior. In fact, I had to find a last minute
replacement to fill their spots that year. Either he was lying to me
or lying to RSG with the above post about his "no plans to attend".
You decide.
