I would find out what the prizes are and then decide if it's worth your time to compete while paying the extra $100 to compete. If you're just doing it for fun, then you need to decide if it's worth the extra money to have fun. Un sanctioned comps are a total crap shoot when it comes to judging, so take that into consideration as well.
