How many times does the Roundhill organization committee need to screw up the games before the EUSPBA takes a good look and refuses their sanctioning of the event? Once again, the wrong results were announced and I waited for 4 hours to play my first event!!!

I did well, when all was said and done, placing in top three of my events, so I am not put off by a bad performance. What gets me angry is to see the the steady decline of this particular game and no one does anything about it! Each year the competitors are treated like garbage. From what I understand, the competitions were to be begin at 8:00am according to the games' website, and some players were disqualified for being late when they showed up on time, only to find that they were marked down to play at 7:30am. The EUSPBA needs to really think about whether or not they want to sanction this game any longer, or at least step in and make sure things are done properly. Why the hell do we pay dues to put up with this nonsense? Anyone else out there get angry about Roundhill this past weekend?

I gave up on Round Hill a couple of years ago. Just not worth the aggravation. Rather stay home and play in my backyard for fun than put up with that game. Points be damned.
