Re: CF Games Info Now Up

I think 2 spots for 5 affiliates is more than fair. I'm not complaining, cuz I also counted the # of affiliates in each region to see if they were proportional, but 3 guys and 3 girls in Western Canada (35 affiliates) is INSANE! OPT, Brett Marshall, Michel FitzGerald (OPT's younger brother), plus at least 8 other FireBreathers from just Calgary! You'd have to be nuts not to assume that OPT and Brett are going to get the top 2 spots, so really that only leaves one spot open in this region...

I'm scared to find out some of the girls that are going to be participating.

Re: CF Games Info Now Up

I need a new flyer for this year's Games to put up on my blog!!! The 2008 flyer isn't flying so high anymore!

I believe it is top 5 males/females from 2008 who get automatic entry - everyone else has to qualify.

I didn't realize it was only 5! I knew through James that he had to qualify. Maybe in the future they work out some system where previous top finishers could qualify for 'x' years in advance. For instance:
Top 3 Finishers from 2007, Top 5 Finishers from 2008, and Top 8 Finishers from 2009 all qualify to the 2010 CF Games. If someone places in the top in more than one year (Josh Everett) then there would just be fewer automatic qualifiers. Cuz James' 2007 1st place and 2008 11th place are both impressive. Same goes for Speal (2007 4th, 2008 10th)

The quality of competition is going to be insane. It's going to be nuts just at the qualifiers!

Re: CF Games Info Now Up

This is going to be GREAT!

It may be tough to make it to The Games, but everyone who has the balls to compete in the qualifiers should be given big props!
