Peter, I agree that $50 is not a bad deal per se' - BUT EVERY insurance company of any kind gives discounts for bundled insurance things -(car, home, life, multi car, no accident good driver, etc.) - so to say that liability doesn't decrease by volume goes totally opposite how the insurance industry views things as they don't charge you solely on liability and volumes. The more business you give them, the lower the cost for them to bundle things together.
Maybe it's just a matter of ASKING the insurance company and seeing if they lower the price - maybe the PDGA keeps it at $50 for individual Events and $40 -$45 per Event for Series and the PDGA can STILL MAKE MONEY from the TD's before the Events even happen, or maybe as a loss leader as they can say - we KNOW we'll be getting $750+ from Mr. TD running a Series in players fees and maybe they would eat the 30-50 bucks they might be "giving" to the TD with discounted insurance - I mean at best we are talking only 15-25 TD's that are running Series Events at this point in time - hell alot of them don't even PLAY, but have to pony up the 50-75 bucks just for the right to RUN a PDGA Sanctioned Event - they could use some of that money for this program - which if my Series is any indication - helps DRIVE players to be PDGA members therefore making the PDGA more money than if someone just plays one or 2 Events and pays the Non-member fee for them.
Also it is EXTREMELY easy to keep track of Series versus non Series, as it could be a check box next to the Events as it is with member or non member, official or not an official, etc. and would have to be set up where all Series Events were sanctioned at the same time, therefore making it a piece of cake to tell which Events are part of a Series and which were not.
Thanks for your opinion, I agree with you on fees as already pointed out in my previous post of the $942 in fees from just MY Series alone on TOP of the $700 in Sanctioning and insurance costs - and hopefully the office will be able to discuss the idea and give it some serious consideration.
