ams shouldn't be recieving anything but comemorative gift and the top 20% should be awarded whatever is deemed appropriate.
the rest should deal with the reality of the situation. ams should be primarily focused on acquiring greater ratings. spoiled... very. very much so in the NW.
this has nothing to do with anything else.
tourneys should be ran for a gain on finance and not for keeping needy folks happy.
this is now the age of funding our events properly, and not promoting some giveaway.
want bigger and better events? pay the entry and play. players packs at C & B tiers are a joke in my opinion and shouldn't be considered. TD's should get paid for their work and quit doing this community pro bono shiz.
get more money and better competition. when there is a mass excess in funds then possibly consider providing lush perks like what our community has been experiencing. players packs and material goods are setting us back in terms of what we can offer as far as nice courses and amenities during play.
monies from entries should strictly go towards production costs, promotion, TD payment, paid spotters (no volunteers - unless requested by said volunteer to be unpaid), and course improvement and beautification.
