My numbers might not be perfect but I bet they are close not sure on cost on the stuff. Anyway lets look at Barn. I see there were 23 teams all together.
Entry at least $ 4600.00 if all paid early
Paint cost at $60.00 case 1 per player is $6900.00
Paint for finals where they added 6 teams instead of 4 for more paint sales. We will say 4 cases per team for finals would be 48 cases would be $2880.00
Then the total would be about $14380.00 Take in.
Ok cost on prizes I think
10 Minis maybe high at 3200.00
10 Events 800.00
10 Halos 800.00
Paint Cost my guess. At $40.00 and that might be high at cost I dont no for sure cost on paint.=$6520.00
Ok cost for prizes and paint I think would be around
Then profit would be around
Not bad for a days work and they say they dont make money at CTS or any other fields around Indiana they need to give away better prizes.
I may be way out in left field or they might make more than this.
You left out cost for field usage, refs, food/drinks for staff, staff, travel, accomodations, fuel and misc. There's also the expense of the air fills. That's variable by event. Insurance is covered by the field.
IMHO Kenny and Gary probably break even if they are lucky.
If you want better prizes spend more money on a national event. Regional events rarely make any money for the promoters.
