Fixed...remember the alligator eats the bigger number!
That sounds about right though. One issue, I know though is that for some women, they'd like to play at the am level--lower entry fee, player packs, keeping am status, etc., but are "too good" to play am. They'd end up beating the competition by too wide of a margin to feel sportsmanlike (sportswomanlike?), and so move up due to morals. I think it would be nice to have truly separate intermediate, advanced, and open fields, but the numbers just don't work out that way all the time.
Just thinking out loud here...say a woman wants to play Am but is at the more advanced level. Move her into the pro division, but let her pay the Am fees, give her a player pack, and play for trophy only.
