This would only happen in Washington's Championship. On a serious note, I feel like somebody back on some other forum suggested that it be an invitational. Perhaps the top 3, 5 or 10 finishers in each division - depending on the field's average size - get an invite...
Or, as Scott mentioned, have a well-advertised, well-ran event and have it out. I'd like to see some format like singles -> match play -> skins...something a little different than your standard tournament.
