For an event like this, its not happening to get amazing prizes... you understand that from the start.

Hence why entry is not that expensive and it's a one day event.

I am curious what you would suggest for prizes when you are paying $15 per player entry fee (cheaper than open play)? Always looking for player input so please let me know so we can take it in to consideration for next year.

It gets expensive when you have to factor in the drive, hotel, etc. Entry is cheap yes. Paint is averagely priced (not saying it couldn't be cheaper).

Say you win the race-4. You won $400.
Then you shoot 6 cases just say. That's $300. Entry is $100. There goes all your prize money. And then you still have to factor in gas, and a hotel. Yes it does come somewhat close to open play, but you still wind up putting money out, even if you do win.

Hotel is $100 for the holiday inn on site (after taxes and what not), you can fit 4 in a room, that's $25 each.
It's a 4 hour ride, which is probably a tank and a half of gas. So another $45 per car.

Yes it comes close if not works out cheaper. But imo, you don't really want to win and still wind up losing money. But I'm going to guess the teams knew this going in, and were okay with it.

Could be worse as in: No Tournaments at all. Maybe Ken should just go back to handing out a trophy at each event.

I can't think of a tournament anywhere that you come out ahead if you have to travel and stay in a hotel.

Lets use World Cup as a example

D2
RaceTo-5 entry $2,750
Plane ticket if you only bring 10 players $2500.00 (average)
Hotel if you can find a place that you can average $25.00 per player a night $750.00
Rental car for a few days $180.00
Paint if you can get all the way thru the final about 15 cases if your lucky $600.00
total $6780.00

Payout 1st $5,000
Net -$1780.00

if you are looking to make money playing paintball, you need to find another sport. at best you will break even. we don't play to get rich; we play because we enjoy playing.
