Odds of any particular team winning certainly go down as the team count goes up just like the lottery BUT that in and of itself has nothing to do with an idea that a GC from a smaller comp is not "equal" to the GC of a larger one. What if it's an event with 25 nationally know hard core competitors? I don't know if I much agree with the term "bottom feeding" either. Has no one here ever seen a basically unknown team come out of left field and win a big event? I have and it's great to see.
So, because the "luck" factor grows at bigger events the winners are actually somehow better or worth more?
I never knew KCBS had GC "A" grade and CG "B" grade winners.
I don't understand why the Royal couldn't divide what spaces they have and split them between all the states. 100 spaces, 2 invites per state.
Or, if this is a money issue with giving away spaces that "could" be money makers instead of money drainers it's totally understandable, every space costs money to the event and is hard to make up.
What about figuring up the actual cost of each invite space and ask the invitees to contribute? I'm sure it'd be way,way less than the open entry fees and would help keep the event alive.
Does anyone think teams would have an issue maybe paying $100 or less for the invite space?
Just wondering, having lived in several areas where large multiple events throughout the year are not physically or financially possible but are no less GC's then the huge events.
