Hard to see how the USCF will survive these numbers.

Hard to see how the USCF will survive these numbers.

1) Cut Staff
2) Raise Scholastic Rating Fees

The EB could try requiring that the ED and Chess Life Editor
actually spend some time (like 40 hours a week) in the office. I
think that might help.

Given Niro's track record, that means we would have lost $720,000 instead
$360,000.

The service as a whole is being sold at a loss. As to the subset of
adults, the relevant question isn't whether the rating service is
being sold at a loss, but whether or not the adult OTB market will
bear an increase in ratings fees, a service over which the USCF
controls the US OTB market. I think it will. Thus, raise the ALL.

No, you uncomplicate the pricing system.

That being said, if you want to move all rating fees to 20 cents a game or
something for electronic submissions- bear in mind that that will double the
rating fees for most scholastic events, which tend to be quite big.

I don't see why we need to continue either the discount for scholastic and the
free crosstable for scholastic. Also, paper submissions are horribly
underpriced.

The grapevine said that staff expected at least five people would have to go
after the meeting. They would be the ones to know what it'll take.

Raise all fees. It is ridiculously expensive to do the ratings and
ridiculously cheap to buy.
