So, I'm looking into having the Big Sky State Games become a PDGA sanctioned event. I want to get some feedback on this topic, because there are some obvious issues that will arise. There would not be a 100% payout for open players. The BSSG will need their registration fees, as will the PDGA. Any and all comments/suggestions on this topic are greatly appreciated and encouraged. I would like to have as much feedback as I can before I present this to the BSSG committee. If you would be interested in this becoming sanctioned, and think you might be interested in attending, please either post here, or send me a PM. Thanks ya'll
FYI, the 100% payout for Open players does not include fees taken out for PDGA, state parks, club fees etc. I am sure the BSSG fees (assuming they are minimal) would be included in there. Basically you can't take money out of the Open payout for player's packs and other non-necessary items. Pretty sure that's how that works anyway.
C-Tiers only have to pay out 85% anyway. But yeah any fees don't count as part of the "100%".
As far as the fees go, shouldn't be a problem to sanction, but aren't the BSSG's supposed to be about amateur events and athletes?
The main reason I want to get it sanctioned would be to draw a larger crowd. We only had about 20 total competitors this year. We had Open, Ams, Women, and youth. I just would like to see a better turnout. I have about 6 months to think this through, so I'm glad I'm getting some advice on this.
