I have been involved with running the Challenge for the last 6 years with the exception of 2008, which I was out of the country for a wedding the weekend of the event. From reading your last several posts it indicates to me that you have no idea what the Challenge or the current tournament scene is all about. I think that you should do some research, maybe even play an event before talking "bigger payouts". Where do you think the money comes from? We have people that work hard to raise that, and if you have an avenue to secure more, I'm all ears. We added cash to even the amateur field last year to help cover the costs of the sweet player packages ALL amateurs got, along with having three disc golf vendors (one local, one from Madison, WI, and one from Kansas City) provide a means for amateurs to spend their funny money winnings. The professional payouts for the last three First Class Challenges are here:

It seems that all of the well attended tournaments have been around a while. Having run the same tournaments for 10,15 or more years the TDs generally have a very strong volunteer base. I feel it takes time to grow an event. If you look at glass blown they say their first year they had 55 or 85 people. Now 9 years latter they are looking to have 500 people. They didn't just get there over night. They have been putting on good tournaments for a very long time.
I feel lucky playing in Iowa for such a strong tournament scene. TDs figurately and literally fight over weekends. It is pretty sweet from a player stand point that I can pretty much play a tournament every weekend.
I think what people are trying to say is we HAVE huge tournaments in Iowa. Instead of trying to make a new one they would love help on an existing tournament.
