I am trying to find a way that we can still have a fall classic at tishomingo....
"Michael, Make sure you get with Donna at the park so she can tell you about the new requirements for vendors to sell anything on the park (food, disc golf accessories, etc.). Not only is there a vendor fee ($35.00). Each vendor has to fill out a form and pay either the event organizer or park the 7% sales tax they collected on their gross sales who in turn have to set up a meeting with the Department of Revenue and turn this money over to them. There making it easier and easier to hold these tournaments and Special Events! "
Yes they do... part of the problem!!! And when you have 40 am teams and 7 pro teams, so the payout is larger for ams than for pro, what then??? And what is an am... they are who plays for prizes, not cash. Yes they love it, but like I said you are opening a can of worms, seen it before! You think there is bagging now, wait until cash is involved.
vendor fee isn't the problem, its extra things we have to calculate because every disc we are going to have to calculate taxes on. Every bit of food is going to have to be calculated. It will hurt the payout by at leaste $200. Cash will allow all of that to go toward a payout. I do not see an issue with a doubles event paying out ams with cash. If it doesn't effect am status, it should not matter.

If 2 intermediate players goes to a doubles event and chooses to play pro for some reason. If they win, they can play the next weekend in intermediate if they would like. If that is possible, then paying out ams in doubles events should be possible as well because they both recieved cash and did not change their am status.
1.5 A player's Amateur Status and divisional classification for a singles event, SNAC or SNPC is not changed or affected by competing or accepting awards of any kind in a SNDG doubles tournament and/or the SNDG Doubles Championship
For that event, they are considered a pro only because of the payout. The competition will still be the same....if a pro player hasn't cashed in open and moves down....thats fine, they could have done that at any event. If you have a awsome payout, they will move down, cash or not.
