So with all the hoopla going on lets start a new hypothetical tour. Ill start with what I have in mind.
First would be Number of events-8 with a championship so that makes 9
4 events would be in the east and south- PA, SC, FL, TN
4 events would be in the west and Midwest-IN, MO, WI, TX
The Championship would be held in IL
You only need 4 events to qualify for the shooter of the year but you can shoot up to 6 events for a shooter of the year and drop your lowest two scores.
The season would start in Late January then would continue on thru august and the championships would be the first week of September.(hopefully cooler)
Open Pro-50 yards
Womens Pro- 50 yards
Senior Pro -50 yards
Semi Pro -50 yards
Open a-45 yards
Open b-40 yards
Senior Open-50 yards
womens open- 45 yards
a few youth classes
and a fingers class
Speed limit of 300fps
ASA Scoring, no 14 in any class
Shoot downs in semi pro and higher
Each Group in the pro class will have a electronic scoring device to provide live up to date scoring for the spectators.
Pro shooters would have to qualify to shoot pro.
two day event 40 targets 20/20
Pro Mens -300
Pro Womens - 150
Senior Pro - 150
all others 50
Mens Pro-$10,000 per event with $100,000 Championship
All other classes would pay top 5 shooters.
I will need a lot of sponsers to be on board to help with the payout.
Each event will have a title sponsor that will be responsible for the Mens Pro Payout.
So this is what i have in mind, pretty crude but you get the idea. lets hear what you would do or how you would change my idea to better it. In my opinion we have to make it more glamours for the Pros and the Spectators. Thats how we get TV Coverage.
