I am the owner of 3 Lions CC and we have been improving in the number of members taking part in clashes and regularly finish in the top 20 and have finished in the top 10 a few times.
There are many clubs like us, who play in the Clashes to finish as high as possible and who love the competitiveness of it but it is somewhat of a let down knowing that each member is only going to get a few passes for all their efforts they have put in.
I completely agree that it's appalling that the prizes (if you can call them prizes) for finishing 4th are the same as if you finish 50th!! Its also disgusting that only 1 member gets a prize for finishing in the top 3!!!
I do think, like Williams as mentioned, that there should be prizes of a sleeve of balls for EVERY member that plays in the clash and finishes in the top 10...at least.
I did contact CS about this a long time ago and had a standard reply that didn't relate to my question. I do hope that people support this but I do think that this will get the same outcome as the "Boycott the Clash" protest that happened a while ago and nothing came of thsame
It doesn't really cost WGT anything to give out more prizes. The more you reward/encourage people for participating, the more they will participate and more people will participate.
