Good luck with that Ron.
Most of those 'proposed' races already carry prizemoney in the thousands of dollars and the 'elites' rarely show (at least in the distance category, A.Rowe being a recent exception). Furthermore, given the standard of distance-handicapping in TAS in recent years, the elites aren't likely to travel across the country to get trounced by some 15 yr old kid who was christened by the handicappers brother's mate and win's in a time 5sec quicker than would win Stawell.

Furthermore, I can't see the other states agreeing that Tasmania should have a monopoly on 'National Pro Racing Championship' events. Perhaps a more equitable distribution of events could be achieved. For example:

400m Albury (NSW)
550m Bay Shef (S.A)
800m Devonport (Tas)
1600m Bendigo (Vic)
3200m Ballarat (Vic)

Obviously, this is far from perfect (eg. the Bendigo Opal is by far the most prestigious), however, it does share the big events relatively accurately according to prestige.
