Well it never took off over on the AVL site, so Dawg Pound Investigations is proud to announce that we will be holding a tournament. lilangel and myself have been working the past few weeks to get enough teams interested and finally have them together. If all goes well, there will be more tournaments to follow which we will make open to all agencies. Our tournament will begin on Monday, April 14 and will be 4 or 5 rounds. details can be viewed here:

25 days?? Sheesh, I lost count after 20..lol

Many thanks to SS and Brick for making this tourney so exciting. You sure kept TK and I on our toes. You guys are great :))

And thanks to you ctown for all the time and effort you put in organizing this tourney. It was lots of fun and I'm glad I entered it. I still wonder how you manage to do all you do!!

Now, to relax, I've sent Turtle on another VH, but this one might last a week. No pressure and all the time in the world ;)))

I'd like to get some peoples input on something that has been asked of me. There is no way that we can see what city opponents are in during these hunts. I know some people try to keep a close eye and track it themselves, some may not want to give the info up. Now I can put a section in the page that tells everyone what city people are in, but that would rely on my availability, we all know sometimes I'm a little behind. What would you all think of a rule that during a competition, while competing that you have to put in your bio what city you are in, being 1, 2, 3 or 4. Not the name of the city for all you weisenheimers like me that would do that! ;-) Not necessarily what clues you have in each city but just the city number!

Discuss!

I think it's great, cause as we all know, luck can change in less than a heartbeat! And it's fun to track opponents as well as competitors.It just adds a little extra dimension.

Also, a competitive AVH might have that as a requisite, so anyone not agreeing (as is their right) might simply opt out on that particular competition.

I would like to announce the theme song for the Kop Invitational: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9z7t-Ox3XvU

I too like the posting...nothing spells grief like seeing each other's misery!

Also I have no problem about showing exactly where I'm at. The only way I can see it being a problem is someone wants to guess to move ahead.

My goal in a competition is to move ahead as best I can. If I lose, I don't care and I truly enjoy all the new friends I've made. That to me is the best prize!

Ctown, you know i'm all for this idea. I post mine in my bio already as do a few others.

I'm sure it would make it easier on you because I wouldn't have to ask you anymore where other people are in their hunts. ;)

Ok just catching up on this. In terms of AVH comp, I think I liked the idea that people didn't know where I was on my hunts. I could tell them I was in stuck in City 2 on Day 3 (when I was really about to solve) or City 4 on Day 2 (when I was nowhere near it). I think the air of uncertainty, wondering where your opponent is in relation to you, or even if the info they are offering you is true or false, adds an edge to the compettion.

Ahh, another side of the discussion, glad to see it. Me personally, I don't worry too much about it, I just do what I can on my hunts. I do sometimes ask people, but thats just being nosy! ;-)
