FYI... the $5 Series fee was broken down into:
$3 going toward end of year awards (tropies & payout, and qualifier shirts), and
$2 going toward covering part of the Series crew travel expenses... not the other way around.
There is an ORS TD agreement that was used that outlined the vision of the "old" Series that had general guidelines that helped unify the events into a cohesive Series... I would think that most of it would still be useful as a starting point as you move toward your new organizational structure. The TDs from last year should all have a copy...
I'm really glad to see the clubs pulling together to keep this going.
It was awesome working with all of you and I know you'll work hard to continue hosting great events people will be happy to play.
