CMSA President's Message

Attitude:

Each morning when we wake up we have a choice about our day. Do I move forward or backward? (Positive or Negative?) It is very obvious we have a more productive day with a positive attitude by taking negative things that come up and turning them into positive. Oh, how true the old saying is: positive breeds positive and negative breeds negative. Did you ever notice how your attitude effects those around you? If you are positive it catches on or if you're negative it also catches on. So how do you want to be known: as a positive person or negative?

When we announced the Extreme Double Down, we were very much aware it only affects the top people in their division who play this ancillary class. This class is not for the weak of heart. It requires nerves of steel, you must be very competitive, a gambler, and have extreme confidence in your ability to play the game. You have to be someone willing to let it all hang out in order to win big. Someone with a Positive Attitude.

The Extreme DD is a very Positive Program for the riders who want to win more money.
$60 a rider covers CMSA’s expense for the double down. (On a $200 entry or more)
By adding $200 to the entry fee with all of it going to the payback it is a 257% increase or $340 in the entry fee portion of the payback. CMSA is not keeping any of the $200 increase.
The math works out to be an 85% payback plus $15,000 in added money. The highest percentage ever paid at any CMSA Event. It really increases the payback.
Based on last year’s numbers from world of 135 double down entries

2018 $18,900 payback from entry fees + $15,000 = $33,900 total payback
New $45,900 payback from entry fees + $15,000 = $60,900 total payback
That is $27,000 more dollars for payback.

Once again, this only affects the Double Down players or those wanting a chance to win more money. I am not on Facebook but I have been sent some of the comments. It seems a lot of them are from people who don’t enter or don’t understand how it will work. Some just want to complain about the double down in general.

We are doing this for those who want to win bigger checks, CMSA is not keeping any of the increased fee, it’s all going to the payback.

All we ask is for everyone to be positive and have an open mind. Let’s see where this program goes. If you have a question pick up the phone and call the office. We will be more than happy to answer your questions.

Why don't you weight the average as it should be. Just like roping, barrel racing, or anything else? Rewarding "one and done" runs just doesn't make sense. And rewards the "sandbaggers" of the sport

I am sure it is probably explained somewhere so please have patience. I am a SM5, in the extreme DD am I competing just against fellow SM5s?

So cmsa previously kept $ 60 for one run and kept it at 60 while masking this by focusing on 85% payback. Took me 10 seconds to see that. it will no longer be feasible for me to risk entering as a SL5. How many more r out which will result in same payback with few entries.

☹️ So this is big news? I can’t wait to see how long the lines are to enter. This’ll probably take up the whole day to run, there will be so many entries lol! 🤣🤔

So you raise the stakes 20%, but raise the entry fee by 100%. Is my math right?

End the suspense already! I have enough to worry about without adding wondering about this. I think my definition of soon and yours are incredibly different.
