If entry is 17 w/ada, then they are making 3 bux/player extra on entry. Paint has profit, so there is more $$ for the store. And when you factoer in the fields cost on the stuff the winning team will buy, the player probably only actually gets 30 bux worth of stuff. Its good experince, but not worth it imo.
I have a few questions for you and I would really like you to respond:
Are fields allowed to make money?
If fields don't make money, how long do you think they will stay open?
Do you really think that if I sell $80 worth of products that I make a $50 profit?
How much profit should a field make for hosting a tournament?
I love owning a store and field. I have met so many awesome people in this area and other areas. I enjoy hosting tournaments and traveling to other local fields for their tournaments. It's fun! If I was in this to get rich, I would have shut down along time ago.
