I did my first big tournament last weekend. While I have done small ones where there is only one game going on at a time, this was my first one where there were 11 fields and 100 teams competing all day for two days. GenoP as well as other colleagues came out to help so there were four of us shooting plus three kids, including my two, served as lackeys. Lots of lessons learned such as 1) having a dedicated work flow person to sort through images all day while the photogs are out on the field; and 2) having a backup internet service. It took me two extra days to go through 102 games and more than 20,000 images. Then my Internet Service Provider, Comcast, had upstream issues so my upload speed fell to as low as 10kbs so that cost me another two days. I brought my stuff to a friend's business and it turns out he was having the same issue because it was a town wide problem. I have since called Verizon to hook me up with DSL. The cable line will go to the router from now on. That will serve the family needs. The DSL will go straight into my computer. That will give me a redundant high speed connection. I turned down three other tournaments like this. Good thing too as they would have been back to back weekends and I need to iron out these issues first. Plus I do want to enjoy the summer Here are a few shots. The only one I know was mine for sure is the first one. The other's could be Geno's or Kent's. I left out Alan's shots since he was shooting with a Canon. Those I can tell because they were a bit cooler than the Nikon images. I was shooting a D2Xs with a 400/2.8 + a 1.4 tele. Geno shot with a D2X + 300/2.8 + 1.4 tele. Kent had the same lens kit as Geno but was using a D200 body. Geno actually listened about how I wanted the images shot. i.e. tight enough so no cropping would be necessary though the others shot tight 75% of the time.
