    Don't let these guys bring you down Trev. To me , regardless of what the score sheet says, at the end of the day, you will always be the 4th place Champ! :dv

    Instead of complaining about it, have you ever done anything to help correct the issue? Start a sanctioning committee that would double entry fees to be used to pay to get qualified judges? Theres not too many things worse than someone that complains but doesnt do anything to fix. After all it is you that continues to pay contest after contest to be judged by 3 to 5 opinionated people, who may or may not be up to snuff on contest calling. Just because you think you sound awesome - doesnt mean that the judge does. Seems to me that you had forgotten how it works? Its not easy to get people to judge a contest especially when you have whiny, emotional callers complaining about a judges OPINION.

    The big guys use to pour money into the contests - they don't have to anymore - they spend their money elsewhere. Period.

    PS:
    It looks like you got your job ahead of you to clean things up...
    You should be able to clean things up over the next few years and when you do - RNT, Grounds, Foiles, Zink, Echo and many other big guys will pour the cash back into the contests.

    PS: PS:
    The contests started years ago to promote calls and get hunters out to spend their money - they don't need that avenue anymore - that's why contests are getting weaker and weaker. It's not a need to promote calls anymore.
