This decision doesn't mean that Spokane will never consider being part of the WSS in years to come. Hopefully, we can come to some arrangement to make Spokane's representation in the 2012 WSS more equitable.
Last year $1516 (47.5%) of the $3192 total that was raised for the 2010 Finals purse came from the east side of the state.
Of the 67 competitors that qualified for the 2010 WSS Finals, 12 (18%) were from the east side of the state.
We need to find a solution that will equalizes these two stats, any IDEAS out there?
I wish there was a solution. I know four of us qualified from Walla Walla and we were not even a part of the series. We went in knowing we would have to travel.
It really seems like you lump eastern washington to being Spokane.
Truth is we (east side)had an equal number of events. In fact we had 4 qualifiers and they had 3 qualifiers and a series final.
It seemed until we decided to re-vote on a previous tie vote (we have no protocol for ties) you were pretty quiet.
Not once did you say hey we need to...or spokane will not be able to be in the series because....
I don't know what you were hoping to change if you did not present options to the group.
Thanks Bob for your time.
