Ace funds roll over to the next year, the ace funds aer at 50% so that there should always be some benefit for hitting it. Club members that work on the weekends may not be able to make the Club Championships, so why would it be fair to that person that played 18* this year to miss out at the WyCo event and have someone hit it that may have never been there?
Leagues are the biggest income source for the club, each league is unique and therefore should be accounted for on an individual basis. This is not something new, this has been this way prior to me ever living in KC, do we need to change it? I can bring it up at the meeting tomorrow night.
This also may go back to the ace fund in general, after all I got TICKED when someone from Topeka hit the WW ace fund that was close to $2000. I did not think that it was fair to have someone that really did not play here or at league take home that much $$$, thus we changed the league fees and made it so that you had to pay an extra $1 to get in. Club members get the $1 discount, so to those locally it was seamless.
I personally like the idea of $1or $2/round, give it all away at the end of the weekend, have it roll over on each round. I guess I am kinda shocked that you did not realize that the ace funds roll over if no one hits it. even WW glow (non-club) took from our page and pays out 50%, keep some money in the coffers so when it is hit, it has some bite to it.
