The organizers of the Diamond Cup haven't had smooth sailing as they fought through one obstacle after another. That was never more evident than the news that broke on Huckleberries Online a year ago of directors abandoning the Diamond Cup board right and left:

A look at the Secretary of State's business directory reveal that four directors abruptly resigned their posts in the first week of this month — Art Flagan, Jim Addis, Craig Brosenne and David Bobbitt. Additionally, there's a correction on the Secretary of State's site that shows Kiki Miller had been inadvertently listed as a director." More here.
