It baffles me that CV gives away all it's profitable events (called "competitive bidding") and then underwrite the ones which lose money:

Other Organisations Run CV Events:
Blitz, Vic Open, School-teams and Junior Championships (all of which are profitable)

CV Continues to Run:
Aus/Vic Masters (loses money while committee members are paid to organise the event), Club-Teams event, Vic Championships and from time to time Aus Champs/Open/Juniors/School-Teams (all of which need financial support)
