Hopefully we get to race in it together once you're back
:) I can't wait until the day we do!
The first sprint tournament I went to was in San Fran in 2009. It was pretty small, about 30 people, but it made an impact on me. Very soon after (within weeks), I built the bracket in Excel which we now use for SART. I built this 6 years before we ever used it!
Back in 2009, we didn't have any sprint maps up here, so it was a bit of a pipe dream "Maybe one day we'll have sprint maps..." Then in 2014, I realized that I had a knack for making sprint maps, so bam, SART! If you build it, they will come, as they say.
Anyway, in my eyes, I view the San Francisco one as the original.
Wow, I think I'll have to head to San Francisco to see the inspiration!
