To have you sit here and call to question their motivation is, in my opinion, a joke. If you think the ORS series staff was getting rich off these tournaments I think you as sorely mistaken.
Yes, the subject line of this thread could have been a bit clearer, but rather than clarify the subject line, once again, you took the opportunity to bad mouth some of the most dedicated advocates of disc golf in our area. I have nothing but good things to say about the ORS staff and Bellingers in particular.
Jeff, I actually did suggest several alternate titles for this thread. If it had been (like I suggested) "Thanks for all you have done..." then I would not have had any qualms about the thread. But to offer up such a claim without records seems like glad handing.
Most of the posts about how much Time and Effort goes into running an event were done by "the locals". There sweat and effort make the event.
You do offer some interesting questions though.
If the series coordinator's get some sort of compensation is the actual TD also considered as Series staff for that weekend?
Does sponsorship money come from series sponsors go to club? and conversely does local sponsorship money go back to series?
In other words
Does series keep all it's sponsor money or share it with events?
and Does series get a cut of the Local sponsorship?
Yet Another Question
What does the club/course receive form the series as compensation for hosting the event?
