I'm not. Just bored enough to bitch about it this afternoon.

FWIW- I habitually prorate the sanctioning fee into a pass through and dine on the printing.

As long as the size of your "Other Fees" deduction isn't too big relative to your entry fees, it will likely fly under the radar. It's only when enough players question payouts in an event that the tournament finance report might be reviewed.

No disrespect intended to the PDGA, but they come in a strong second to the players when considering who may "review" the value of events.

Not sure what you mean in context with the discussion on how Other Fees should be handled?

Possible that I misunderstood what your point was in that post - I was just pointing out that my priorities are players experience first before I consider PDGA standards, requirements or reviews.

My post was simply about how the numbers should be reported, nothing to do with how the event is run or player experience.

Then I missed the point of your post. Disregard my response as it is out of context.

It took me awhile to find the file, but I thought I remembered this from the Excel TD report:

Ams or Pros may enter an Am division for 1/3 to 1/2 of full entry fee if TD allows it and just compete for trophies only.

Does anyone know if this is still an option for TD's?

I don't remember anyone ever offering this option. As a TD I probably wouldn't want to either for the same reasons given for optional players packs. As a player I would like to have this option, but I'm not holding my breath that it will ever happen.

Somebody who has access to the Tournament Manager would need to check and see if this option made it from the Excel file into the online system.
