It would of course be much more in an A-Tier or a National Tour event. There was much discussion of this issue, and it is not my intent to review the pros and cons of the Board’s decision here.
I think it is best if a Board Member does not discuss Board deliberations on the internet, but would you be willing to explain your point of view versus mine? I was one of the Competition Committee members who argued for the $500 as being an inflexible obligation.
