Since everyone is playing for cash, I don't want people to show up and see who else is there and sign up for AM because they are intimidated by another pro player.

You never know, AMs might start cashing in the pro division and start building enough confidence to move up to pro for RCF events too. This would help balance the divisions for local tournaments, thus increasing the payout and evening the divisions so they aren't so Am heavy...
I think you're over thinking things a little bit.
Food for thought: We had some problems with the perception of bagging in some flight events I ran a while back. I ended up putting in a bump rule that said if your overall score would have put you in the top 1/2 of the flight above yours, you got bumped up.irwinje wrote: People need to understand that the field in divided into 2 flights after the 1st round and they stay in those flights after the 2nd round, regardless of how much better/worse they may have shot in the 2nd round.
