On average: how much does this event cost you?

I got back into paintballing and recently discovered this event but was too late to purchase and don;'t have the funds. I'm wondering how much I should save for the event. On average, how many cases of paint do you go through? Are you only allowed to have what pods you have on you? Are there refill stations and if so, is it free or do you have to pay?

I'm assuming itll be pretty expensive...Me and a couple co-workers plan on taking a roadtrip next year and can't wait!

u can have as much paint on u as u can carry. the air and co2 is part of you registration fee. i dont use much paint, but i have heard of guys using like 7 cases. thats 14,000 rounds!!!! im pretty broke so im trying to keep it cheap.

registration
paint
gas
food

spending money

should be around 200 hundred bucks. last year it was close to three hudred and i still didnt use that much paint.

Ya Eagles guy is smoking something special. That is crazy.

It depends on how much food you bring as well. But mainly I would somewhere around $300-$400

I brought $1000 cash and came home with less than $50. If you counted all the supplies i stocked up on prior to the game i would be close to $1500. no joke. Keep in mind we rent a brand new truck, trailer, spend alot on gas ect towing down 2 tanks. bought $400 - $500 in paint, bought some gear, food ect.... but if you're not going all out like i do you can get away with spending only a couple hundred.
$3000? No effing way

wouldnt things you buy extra (gear I mean from the vendors) count as something else not the $ you actually soend on the event?

I would think registration and paint and food and gas to get there would count...but if like us you bought new pods, new sweatshirts, (bc July or not it was damn cold at night!) new tanks and another new mask that would be not counted that was just extras....not like we only use them there...idk just a thought.......

It was roughly $300 + registration for me and that's because my dumb butt left my tent at home and I had to run to walmart and get another one!

I brought all my own food from home so that wasn't an expense out of the ordinary.

$300 is easy. I had paint from bob left over so paint didnt cost me this game.
