I won the other stuff at regional WFDs before I did the world champion thing. As you know there are regional comps that go on all over the world. The one we put on in Michigan 2 years ago was huge. There were over 500 people there, it was televised, and the prizes were excellent. But because of the family connection I wasn't able to compete in that one.

You're right, you can't win stuff at other contests once you win a world championship. Otherwise, you, me, Mike Machine and Tom Grosset would be scouring the countryside looking for free gear. Or say Mike Mangini breaks a snare an hour before a gig. Then all he would do is find out if there is a WFD around and win him a new one.
