Just from my point of view when organizing and running an event, i like to treat all of the cash winning divisions the same, which is why they have the same entry fee and the added cash is distributed proportionally through those divisions. I never subtract added cash from the entry fees, I either raise the money from fundraising or a sponsor or I bite the cost.
I have played open, I am close to masters age and I have been running events for years and have heard many opinions about who should get the bulk of the money and what things should cost, but again by making my events as even as possible, it is clear what I am doing and there are no surprises.
I always say that I think you should play the division that you enjoy to play (within the requirements). I in all honestly am looking forward to playing masters, mainly because from my observations, masters divisions do not look to be as stressful and they seem to have more fun with camaraderie.
To be clear too, Scott, this discussion was never meant to be an indictment of of they way you guys run your events. I think they're great and want to support them by playing as many of them as possible. This was merely supposed to be a discussion of what I view as some of the systemic flaws inherent to our current structure.
But I wouldn't mind if you just put all the added cash in Open.
