You're not the state coordinator. I want to address the issue with somebody that can actually do something about it. I mean, we elect a SC for something, right?
Now, that being said, if they're within the PDGA set limits, the limits need to be increased. These are the types of issues I would like to see addressed with the PDGA. The PDGA has decreased (all in the name of collecting fees) the mileage limits to where they're practically irrelevant. Second, IMO, the State Coordinator should have the power to get an event UN-sanctioned if somebody chooses to not go through the proper chanels like EVERYBODY else does.
1. I am directed by the PDGA to represent their interests and simply help coordinate according to their directives. It's clear that they don't care about the individual success of tournaments, but would rather have several tournaments which would maximize the total number of players playing as well as increase overall sanctioning money. Their budget is dependent on this system and there's likely no way they would ever sacrifice short term money for long term success of the tournament model.
2. As I stated before, I do not feel comfortable infringing on someone else's business. If you owned Proflight and I told you couldn't do Newton because Mt Pleasant was a higher tiered tournament I'm guessing you'd be furious. As much as I'd love to do something, there's really very little I can do. However, I am not against trying. If you have suggestions I'm all ears. Believe me when I say I've thought of many things to consolidate tournament fields and it's just too hard.
