Good point about the advanced/open distinction, but how would the USPA define "professional?" Would there be a committee that decides? What would the definition be? Is it a professional skydiver? (e.g. Tandem instructor). A professional 4-way skydiver? (does this include 4-way coaches??) What if I get free jumps from the DZ, but don't get paid anything additional. Am I a professional? I agree some method of restriction might be helpful, but it seems anything but giving the team the choice (like is the case now) would be hard to manage. I believe the the current rule only limits the classes to non-medal-holding teams. That I agree with at the least. (e.g. Teiwaz shouldn't sit in Advanced, in order to collect medals year after year).
