Also, if I recall correctly HammerDad is a NCP, which means he is unlikely to not take the time he can get. It may have changed recently though, I vaguely recall him posting a thread about that.

You are right. I am an NCP, which means I get precious little time with my D.

My D also expects me to go, as I have always gone. We get some time together, and she sees I am supporting her. For certain tournaments though, the ones that are 5-6 days long, I don't go for the whole thing. I would simply go over the weekend.

If I didn't go, especially in the early years, my ex would make a big deal with our D about me not supporting her at her activities. I know this, as I mentioned that I may not go to one early on and the ex flipped about how I don't support our daughter, and that she was expected to do everything (martyring herself). So I go to a) see and spend time with my D, and b) to take the wind out of my ex's sails about me not supporting the kid.

To be honest, I do enjoy it. D normally does really well and I like seeing her happy. I try to stay out of my ex's way as much as possible, but make sure D knows I am there.
