Ross , how much money do you make on a yearly basis from running Scottish pool events - take 2017 as an example ?

I asked on another thread but it got blanked, how much do you get for sponsorship for Scottish as I think your making a meal of you being £2k down when I think your being economical with the truth.

And donít think you can compare the doubles dropping entries by 10% compared to the near FORTY PERCENT drop in Scottish entries.

Put it simply like this Ross, there were nearly as many people boycotted the Scottish Singles than ENTERED the Scottish Doubles hilarious

Doubles entries were down due also to the singles increase. Previously you were asking your average Joe for a tenner that covered both with the increase your asking them for £15 and some of them just said bolt.

Btw I agree with the increase but that's why numbers are down the lesser player was happy to chuck a fiver away for a decent race.
