So Here Is The Deal.
Tuffy's entry was not placed on the turn in table before the official clock had rolled to 5. It does not matter if he was at the door, in the door, or just passed the door. The entry has to be on the table. There was no line of teams waiting to turn in. And to the poster that wanted to know where the line was, God bless him. I hope he takes up golf or ping pong. FYI, a line does not mean "a line on the floor."
Tuffy's turn in box being moved from the table to a tray as recorded on the video is insignificant. That action got him 20 points vice nothing, if it had not been turned in. He is a smart competitor.
As soon as the box hit the "back room" Carolyn brought it to me for what you may not know is a "confirmation from all Reps available." She presented the facts and I concurred. Let me assure you that no Rep. enjoys any form of DQ and always checks with those available to confirm any such decision. It is always multilateral when possible. It is very sad to all Reps. when any entry is disqualified under any circumstances.
We had a great contest and the support from the ladies of Lakeland was exceptional. I am sure that the teams were happy with all that was done for them.
Tuffy is a true gentleman, but, he was late. Shoot at Carolyn, shoot at me, shoot at Wayne, shoot at Stepnen, and the fact still remains that Tuffy was late.
