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.

He never asked you to defy his statement. He was just telling you to make sure you KNOW said specifics before jumping a step ahead.
