I was thinking about access and increasing membership and came up with this --
So I'm on the dock at Cory's [insert approved tournament site here e.g. @Horton
's] in line for a lesson. @Jody_Seal
[insert rated driver here] is driving today. @JeffSurdej
[insert rated judge here] is there to take a set also. Why can't I say to Cory "I'd like to start with a tournament set." Jody pulls me and Jeff boat judges. I fall on my 3rd pass and get my score. Passes 4-6 I get instruction. At the end of my ride I get an attested score sheet. I go home and get online and enter my class whatever score into the Rankings Database. The first tournament ride I enter in a year costs me $X and each ride thereafter costs $Y. I get my tournament score. I haven't had to spend the night in a hotel room or be away from the family for a weekend day and I've got a tournament score in the database. AWSA has an income stream.
