Re: Ask Chuck
I did post a suggestion that meets your criteria and that's non-sanctioned cash events against players in your ratings range. I have no options to meet your conditions in sanctioned play since it doesn't appear there's support among the Comp Committee to offer the option for pros to officially take cash at 50% of merch prizes in Am divisions. However, perhaps more TDs than Bruce will provide the conversion option indirectly by buying the merch back.
I do have a longer term option that may pan out which you'll hear more about later this summer. Juliana feels it will potentially have a positive impact on Women's fields when we discussed it on my just completed trip.
Rater of the tossed arc.
