I recently heard about an event partner wanting to schedule a tournament to take place in about 2 months, but the request was denied because all tournaments had to be scheduled before the 1st of October.
First question: did I hear this correctly? Is this for real? I find it hard to believe that no new tournaments can be scheduled now that it's past some kind of insanely early-in-the-season deadline.
Second question: if it's true that October 1st was the deadline for scheduling new tournaments, can somebody explain to me the rationale behind this decision? I mean... seriously???
