GENERAL TOURNAMENTS -
These tournaments have now become our stakes and big point tournaments. I would love if we had a little bit more control in building these out. It would give us more say for our best horses, while freeing up HRF resources. Here is my suggestion. General tournaments are voted on as usual. If they are approved, the trainer that requested the tournament will be given a link to complete the process (and perhaps a time limit to complete) The page to compete the tournament would include drop down menus for completing the tournament:
Seems easy enough to me...What's the down side?
With the tournament outlines, the Insta tournaments do not seem to fit anymore. Why race here? Most will only use it for a dumping ground and put most in 20k Instas. It just doesn't seem to have a place anymore.
My suggestion is to keep the Insta tournament, but make them non-claiming. Keep the 3 races per season...Just fast action and fast points ( I think Ruffiano mentioned something similar once)
Without claiming, they make more since than ever. I think we should make this happen sooner, rather than later.
