Did I mention administrative cost of running an office?
KCBS is a bargain, but does not make huge money from contest or teams.
Now someone will ask about the $150.00 fee per rep. Yes KCBS does charge that to the organizer, as well but that sum, is paid in full to the contest rep. And yes, Contest Reps are probably overpaid for a weekend of work for $150.00. (Going to $175.00 in 2010) (just kidding about over paid.)
Just thought the math would help in this discussion.
The BS would seem a poor investment
