Average cost last year

Im trying to figure out funds since I really want to make this years OGP but I was just wonder what everyones average cost was last year(paint, hotel, entry, ect). Just a rough guess whould be nice I dont need exact amounts (and no need to include the liquor costs cause I have no doube that doubled that tab )

Keep in mind the numbers will all probably be significantly different this year, as we're changing venues. The paint is supposed to be cheaper, but I'll bet the hotel rooms will be more expensive due to the area. Entry I assume will also depend on CFOA as opposed to IAO last year. And obviously the travel costs will be different for everybody, depending on how far they're going and how they're getting there (GREYHOUND 4 LYFE... ugh).

I think I set aside $400 after entry. I came home with some green in my pocket too. Fuel costs will be more than last but probably not much more. You could always drive down I75 to I70 and hitch a ride with me. My GMC needs a hood ornament and a gremlin will do just fine. Wear your goggles.

I think I spent around $600 total.But that included me buying stuff at the trade show(if you want to call it that).And our team camped in the campground it was like $20/person for the week it wasn't bad and I like camping anyway.

Your best bet is to figure $500ish and adjust from there.

It'll all be different this year,
but

-Entry
-Hotel (for me it'll be 3 nights - the night before, thenight of, and the night after)
-Paint (No clue what that'll run, but I alwas tell people to budget for 2cs per person)
-Food (Budget $30 - $50 per day depending on how well you like to eat)


As a rough guess, per person, $100 entry, $200 hotel (split a room with a team mate), $200 paint (very high estimate), $130 foodd (again high estimate) = $630 and you'd have money left over.

I prolly spend about a grand every year at IAO.

But I do some shopping at the trade show, and spend ridiculous amounts of money on booze, so I'm probably not the best to use as a benchmark

You mean the paint budget is higher than the booze budget? What kinda show are we trying to get here?
