How long has this tourney been in the works? It's got $24,000 in prize money, and nobody but a few skiers in attendance. It's nice for the pros to get some money, but i think it's missing the point a bit. 
It seems like the sponsor is just doing it for fun. If you've got a sponsor like that, why not try to put it somewhere that might have more of a crowd?  Nice video, and announcing from Tony.

What do you mean you lunatic?!
1- That tourney has been going at least 7 years
2 - just about every pro-jumper was in attendance, plus another 30 odd ams
3 - Des was announcing

Organisers & skiers dont always want tournaments at some dodgy site with the a croud...

I watched it. If there were 10 people on site that were not skiers or family members, i'd take a recount.  I know the jumpers were all there, and am not trying to knock the event. It just looks like you have a great sponsor, plenty of skiers, and it could be quite a showcase event with some crowds.

Kind of suprised to come accoss this post. The Stokes Pro Am sponsored by JKPhillips group has been held every year since 2008. The site is not a public site but we have about 500 people on site watching who all know the sport. The Webcast went out both days and was seen by a lot of people as it was widely promoted in the skiing and boating community. It will never be a big crowd event but the Pro's get to earn money in a safe environment and the amateurs always get motivated to train and compete for the event. If there were a few more events like this the sport would be healthier in my opinion. Big crowd events are awesome as well but we are not competing with those events.
