Beginner teams (D5) entry is $150 per team until the first deadline which is July 28 I think. It goes up by $50 every deadline past that. You and your team need to be registered with APPA and sign up for the tournament trough there. The only other cost you have is paint. SEPS is bring your own paint so whatever you want on that. My team used 7 cases last tournament and we had to play prelims (6 games) semi-finals (3 games) and finals (3 games). Which is all the games you could possibly play. We have never shot over 8 in a tournament but you never know. Keep checking the SEPS forum and Josh from Asylum has some great paint prices and he brings the paint to the event so you don't have to worry. It is usually $40/case for Marbalizer and $45/case for Evil. SEPS is a great series and the D5 division has been great this season. You should definitely come out.
