This was clearly a labor of love on the part of Gumby. He was out there reffing all day.
The other refs were pretty good too. The head instructor from Open Door Jiu Jitsu was a real gentleman with kind words for competitors after their matches, and Denny Prokopos was exuberant as always.
There was some serious sandbagging from Crispim's "kiddie's league." Those guys may be kids, but they were very technical and probably should be competing as adults. :-) (just kidding!)
Props to all the competitors who somehow "held it in" in the face of only ONE working bathroom. When the showers/bathrooms are constructed this will be a fine venue for smaller meets, but at this match on the business office bathroom was up and running (the showers/bathrooms are under construction) and the porta-potty company failed to deliver the porta potties that On the Mat ordered.
On the other hand, brackets were organized and no one got "left off the list" due to computer/paperwork glitches.
A VERY HIGH "BANG FOR THE BUCK" TOURNAMENT!
