Not Losing Money on NABCs
Most of the impact has been on the manufacturer. There was a brief dip in airline stocks immediately after the crash, but I think they all recovered. This model is currently only a small fraction of airline fleets in the US.
Not Losing Money on NABCs
Other businesses can charge their best customers less because they make up for it in volume. E.g. if you're a frequent flyer of an airline, they might give you a 10% discount, but if you fly 15% more they come out ahead. But at an NABC, the best ...
Not Losing Money on NABCs
How many top-seeded players are we talking about, a few dozen? Suppose there are 50 of them, and we increase their entries by $50/day (i.e. doubling the price of NABC+ events). That's 50 players x $50 * 10 days = $25,000. How does that compare to the total ...

Not Losing Money on NABCs
The primary goal of the organization costs money. They more net profit they make in revenues versus cost of operations, the more they have available to further the goal.

If we did something that benefited club players, it might make club games more popular, which could cause more clubs to open in places that aren't well served. But should we not reward club players just because not everyone is able to play in clubs? I don't have ...

@Mark "Many of the juniors we hear about" is not the same thing as "most juniors". We'd like to attract more of the juniors who [i]aren't[/i] legacies, wouldn't we? These are probably mostly college students whose parents may be footing the tuition and housing bills ...
Does UI have to be helpful to count?
Please use bidding diagrams rather than text descriptions of the auction, it's hard to keep track of who's doing what.
