First let me state there was exactly $0 in sponsorship for the Open weekend. Any sponsorship money generated was used to support the Ams.
Sure Ed the total deductions out of every entrant was $20
$4 INWS, $3 each to the club and pDGA $2 for the Ace pot and $8 for me. about $420 (12%)
The way I see it I am providing a service and deserve to be compensated for that effort. I could have easily "expenses'd" much more from the $150 trophies to the $50 sanctioning and insurance but I did not. It's not like I live around the corner or have a club to run expenses through with Maintenance costs and such.
It's interesting how if I as a TD can't profit off an Open only field but can gouge the Ams as fast and as often as I want. I am curious why anyone would ever offer an Open only event "just for the heck of it"
Just for the record I took $26 from each Am $15 shirt (cost),and the same fee's as the Open. Again, No trophies or national fees those were all supported by my sponsors.
