But at only $60 Entry per team I think it kind of evens out.. Now if were 60 per guy and 65 for tournament paint I would have to agree its a little steep.

Agreed. For a $300 cash 1st place 5-man it is pretty steep. I understand entry is pretty much nothing, I would bump the 1st place prize up. So whoever takes 1st can get some of their money back. Also it will help fill entries. I am all about helping a local field and helping the Aggressive guys out, but not about to drop $140 + to win $50 based on 6 guys and taking 1st. Or drop it from a 5-man to a 3-man with same cash prize, probably get more teams also. Just some thoughts not complaining

You are heading in the right direction, but still a little low. Again, I am not complaining, we talk to a lot of teams, and basically if the prize is not worth shooting a tournament, a lot of teams wont do it, they will just set up a scrim at their home field and practice all day. We are figuring for 5 guys shooting 2 cases each + $60 entry would be $710.00.

My guess would be the same as any business... to make a profit off of the investment. If you think otherwise you either know something everyone else doesn't or you are just plain stupid.
