I mean they aren't wrong. Doesn't mean you shouldn't go and have fun. Unless of course you don't like fun and meeting new people. Then don't go. Although they sometimes aren't fun. So don't go. But do go. But don't.They say it's a waste of money and time, and you don't get anything if you win.
I've won four puzzles out of the comps I've attended though. (Also bragging rights for having briefly held a national record, lol.)They say it's a waste of money and time, and you don't get anything if you win.
IMO it’s more of a “convention” than a “competition.”What you need to do is change their perception of what a "competition" is. Tell them that the main purpose is to gather, socialize, and test yourself, not merely "compete" against others. Tell them it's a very low cost way to provide you with a full day of fun and socializing with other people your age.
