Seems you had a concern and were asking others their opinion and what they might suggest. If you were only voicing your opinion, I mis-read.

It wasn't directed towards you. I frequently read comments by those who claim they don't care about the competition part, while, in the same sentence, gripe about others who place higher and who don't share their "I run my EDC" philosophy. It gets old after a while. My suggestion to anyone who participates is to decide how you're going to participate, then do your best, be safe, and have fun.
