I'm just curious, how many boats did not have the "required" judge/observer on board? How did they pick who would have one and who wouldn't?

If someone is going to make accusations, they need to be prepared to substantiate theyre claims, and back them up.
This was a non stop work out, and one of the hardest meets I have attended. I welcome any reports or questions on how the tournament went, and what happened on the winning team.

Be careful here.

Congratulation to the Cen Cal team from the Monterey Bay Tritons.

Because of you, the next generation is training today.

Dennis, I don't know you personally but I know you and your team are excellent divers. I wasnt there, I did hear some complaints directly from guys that were in the tournament. Hopefully they will voice them if they are valid.

that's all, thanks for clarifying and congrats on the win

Thanks for that. Appreciate the honesty, and await someone coming forward if necessary.

Re: Freedive Results

At the staging area, Phil Lamm stated they did not have enough judges for every boat. As to which ones had them and which one didn't, I don't know. My team had a judge and a driver in addition to the competitors. Our judge was very helpful, but also strict. There was no doubt in my mind if we did something wrong, she would DQ us.

Phil is going to send out a email in a few days with the individual and team scores. Not sure if he is going to share information regarding which boats did not have judges. That would be interesting to find out!

Re: Freedive Results

I was there and had a judge on my boat and I did hear some loud protest at the rollcall that morning about the lack of judges. While I have no problem having a judge on my boat and did my best that day, I can see how others would feel differently. I think the situation could have been handled in a different way that would have made everyone happy. Since there were not enough judges, perhaps having a random drawing of the judges and boats would have been better. Perhaps then there would not be so many people upset that the winning boat had no judge. As for me, I have dove with Dennis in Mex and Aus and think he is a standup guy and would not cheat. If anybody has proof otherwise, other than hurt ego, please provide it.

(not related to Dennis) I am more curious as to how three divers on a boat can dive the same area but only one comes up with 100#'s of fish? Just wondering....

Oh and if you were not there, than you really have no say in this discussion because your just repeating $%^^. I will get off my soap box now.

This was my first Nationals and I really had a good time. I wish I could have met and hung out with everybody more but I had no transportation while I was up there. I hope to see everyone again at the next Nationals in the Keys.

For my team, two of us (included myself) lost few big buffalo carps and I lost a big catfish. Our third mate handled to bring a couple of big buffalo carps to the boat. All we need is more power to shoot at them and more longer flopper to keep them on the shaft or less stress on them while pulling the line up to the surface. That's why the result showed that my third mate got 100# and rest of us got less than 50#.

That is one of reasons.

Re: Freedive Results

I too competed in this tournament and flt that there was a lack of organization and forethought the day of the tournament. If you have ever competed, you know that judges are pretty hard to get and actually show up the day of the tournament. There needed to have been a plan "B" in case there were not enough judges (as happened). Maybe they could have been raffled and distributed fairly or no one receives a judge. In stead, it was stated that not everyone would have a judge and who ever took off to the start line before they were handed out, did not receive a judge. (I know because I saw it happen).This was a National Tournament and a big slip-up like this should never happen. Dont take this personally this is not directed toward anyone,just stating the facts. Anyways congrats to Denis, Yury and Hanalei !!! See you guys next year in The Keys.
