2017 seems to be the Year of the Large Event Schedule Conflict.
First, we had the Banning Expo opposite Pinmasters. Then, Super Clash June with the Northwest Show vs. Rocky Mountain Showdown vs. Atlanta Pinvasion. Next we have Pinburgh / Replay vs. California Extreme, Now, it looks like we have Free Play Florida vs. Outer Banks circuit. I’m sure there are others, but each of these four involves large events where I’ve previously been to ALL of them, most several times, and now must choose and skip a bunch. Seems to me that event organizers need to coordinate their dates better. I know there are always constraints, having been involved before, but really.
In one of my previous hobbies, science fiction conventions, hosting cities made a concerted effort to keep out of each other’s way on the annual schedule. We could use that here.
Heck, even points leader Trentaur had to skip a Circuit event last weekend.
