I have a friend who works at SOPTC and I asked her why they put a 10K. She said here are the reasons:
1. They struggle to find sponsors in places like Sydney because they don't take an event like this seriosuly.
2. By moving Sydney down to 10K, they have been able, just for 5K extra, to have 2 more tournaments.
3. Aussie Girls are at 10K level mostly, even though some a ranked high enough not to be, that is because of the Australian 25K.
They are going to interchange between 10 and 25Ks every now and then to give places like Pirie where you can get housing a 25K, and in turn make the 10Ks stronger.
I think it's a good idea. More tournaments
They are also planning to give more travel money
