Default true cost of a competition

how much is the actual cost of putting on a 30-50 team contest?
stuff like porta potties, water, gift bags, trophies, security, permits, etc etc.

i imagine it varies region to region, but what's a ballpark figure?

Smokin at the Maples.

43 teams
10K prize pool.... all entry fees minus about 15$ per team towards KCBS fees and a few comped teams.

Expenses.... about 9K.

off the top of my head..
Trophies
potties
golf cartS (<<< YOU WILL NEED THIS), AT LEAST 2, 3 IS BETTER.
Generator and fuel for generator
Event insurance $400/2 DAYS
band
kcbs Fees <<<< OUCH
Team breakfast
vending
VIP/Volunteer meals/tent supplies

KCBS now also requires the names of onsite security, so u may be hiring a rent a cop.

Damn... you guys get golf carts, generator power and a team breakfast.... Our comps offer public crappers, questionable power and you'd be lucky if someone walked over to your space to throw a few biscuits at you in the morning... I can't imagine they cost more than $3-4K to host in the Pacific Northwest.

Oh forgot Trophies $1,500 -- this one I've notice teams really don't care about these, and many a team has told me so... I did my last contest with only $1,000 budget here, and I can go as far as $750 (still giving trophies through 10th place) in all 4 meats + GC and RGC and 1st-3rd in 1 or 2 additional categories... With a combo of trophies that still look great.

Really? We love getting little plastic animals. Some contests also make custom themed trophies up here...Saratoga, Mainely, Lexington...cool stuff.
