There are few reasons:
1 Were all competitors we want the best challenge possible. Having won the Division just below PRO our next natural step is to play PRO.
2 The prize package for winning the D1 Series for the year is ½ off the PRO entry for each event in 2012.
3 Dont want to be considered sandbaggers by staying in D1.
As for APPA Ranking I believe the majority of our team will be ranked Semi-Pro (until they play a pro event) at the end of this season. While I believe the current D1 roster rules allow you to roster Semi-Pro players does it make sense to have a FULL roster of semi-pro players?
In the end, I believe its the challenge that pushes us to play pro. We all want to push to get better. Playing against the best possible competition is the best way to accomplish that goal.
