I know Flash isn't the only word on the subject, but I do think he's done his homework on this topic. Will the major sponsors in our area support just a PRO or AM Worlds?
That is a really good question. The answer is I'm not sure. I know at least one company willing to support us if we put in a bid for Pro Worlds.
However I am pretty sure that the next available combined Worlds would be 2016. I'm not to fond of the idea of committing to anything that far out. Plus, the scale of a combined Worlds is pretty daunting and I personally feel we might have a hard time coming up with enough volunteers to support an event that requires 10+ courses for an entire week.
All of this is preliminary to gauge if running Worlds would be even remotely possible. For now, I'll just watch the poll results.
