First, I would like to thank you, Mr. Hamm, for setting up the Boyceville Invitational. I''m going to be a senior at Mounds View, and we always enjoy going to Boyceville. You could say it's one of our biggest recruiting methods, (You'd be amazed at the number of people who want to squish on a school bus for a 3 hour ride at 6 in the morning.)
Second, I completely agree with Paradox.
I would have appreciated having a built in lunch hour in the middle of the day where everyone can stop to eat lunch. That is, have an empty block in the schedule designated for lunch. You could probably make even more revenue by selling even more people lunch, and nobody would come out of the award ceremony with an empty pit in their stomach (from lack of food, of course
). I'm sure that some of the building event supervisors for events like Towers would appreciate a time to sit down and eat lunch.
I was lucky in that I only had 3-4 events at Boyceville the past 3 years, so I had time for lunch. (By the way, the super nachos are AMAZING.) I do have friends though who had to eat during the awards ceremony, because that was the only time they could eat. Along the lines of Paradox's suggestion for a separate lunch hour, you could have B Div have a lunch hour, and then have Div C have a lunch hour right after. This would allow people to mingle more and meet other people. I know this could be a stress on scheduling, but if it's possible, we would be very grateful.
Finally, I completely agree with Paradox again on the awards ceremony. Last year was definitely the best year by far. I remember 2 years ago, there was a game show, in order to wait for the complete results, but our coaches eventually got tired, and we left in the middle of the awards ceremony. (Sorry.)
Anyway, thank you again for setting up this great tournament. We hope to see you in December!
