We've all gone back and forth on this many times. I wish the entire tournament was made of just women and me! We all get the pros and cons. The issue really boils down to what the tournament is intended for, and that has been to put one town's best against another town's best. That doesn't mean that it has to be that way, it's just the way it was proposed and for the most part has been executed up til now.
In Texas, John Houck has a huge team tournament that involves only 1 pro player/team. It's much more geared toward participation. It's something I've even thought about doing here and may yet.
But getting back to the original discussion, I don't feel like the tournament is exclusive even though it's not necessarily inclusive. There's been Puffins teams and now team Cool, and they always have good stories and moments and for $20-$25/head get a pretty good time even though it's unlikely to be very competitive.
