I agree. I think I had read somewhere, that some organizers include prize money and prizes as a lump amount. That is very misleading. I think they should be made to only list the cash money prizes, and not include any amounts for the prizes that they give away. It is very misleading....
Especially if they list say for an example: Grand Champion is $5000. They get a check for $3000 and a radio, a pen set, and some gift certificates valued at the other $2000..... now that would make me upset..... If cash is only $3000, then say so, not the $5000.....
Just my $0.02 worth.... I will go to my room now.
