We are trying to figure out how much paint we would need. Any iflnfo on this would be great. Thank you
Relating to cost, D4 is $1500 entry for the team and ID cards are $40-$60 per person per year. If you go by ROF-FI chip stats, the top 3 D4 teams shot at least 26,000 shots which is 13 cases minimum at something around $35/case so $455. Cody Woodruff of Camp P Raiders shot almost 19k shots by himself so it can be quite a bit more.
$2235 minimum, plus flight, hotel, food.. I usually figure about $1000 per person per event total to be safe.
2013 HB format was 3-5 individual points per day for 2 days with about an hour between and then sunday you play until you get knocked out. Grab the opponents flag and run back to your starting gate to end the point.
