Default Anyone ever set up an LLC for their team

I had wondered about financial winnings and losses in the past and with Mark's thread about 1099's I figured I'd ask away to see what others have done.

Has anyone set up an LLC for their comp team? I don't know what it would cost to do so, but if I listed the team as a business I wonder if it would be benefitial to my taxes. So far this year we've spent well over $5,000 to do a handful of comps this year. This includes entry fees, meats and supplies, smokers and a trailer - you know, business supplies and equipment) and have won $25.

Could the business be listed as a catering business and the comps be listed as promotional/advertising expenses? Yeah, we'd claim catering revenue (if we ever did do that) and comp wins. Let's face it, it's going to be awhile before the revenue outweighs the expenses - if that ever happens.

Just wondering if anyone's done it, thought about it or has any advise.
