what do you guys think is a fair price for a 20 pound bag of ice?

AMEN!!!

Typically $3 down here.

I am sure a MOD will be along to sweep up the off-topic "rice" posts

you can expect to pay $3.00 for a 10# bag up here easy. so $7 for a 20 wouldn't be gouging really.

$3.99 for a 20lb bag of crushed ice is what it costs in the grocery store here.

I'll just bet that next year a whole bunch of folks stop for ice before getting to the contest. $7 does seem high.

A fiver would be easier and more reasonable IMHO.

I paid $2 a bag for the smaller ones this weekend. Seven or ten pounds, I forget which. On the high side of retail, but I didn't have to drive to get it. I did have to walk though. They gave each team one bag free though. About what I expect if it's not free. $7 seems a bit pricey, even if I was buying 7lb bags. I think I paid $4-$5 for 20 lb bags at one competition last year.

Unless they were forcing you to buy ice from them, it's hardly gouging.
As a team, we always fill up out coolers prior to leaving for a competition and in 4 years, we have never run out of ice.

As an organizer, we realize that it's worth our time and money to try to provide cheap or free ice if we can.

Having said that, I just bought a 20lb bag for home use this weekend. It was 3.99 at a local grocery store. Assuming the organizers weren't able to get "a deal" they may have had to spend the same or more. Keeping ice frozen all weekend isn't free either. They may have had to rent some sort of refrigeration for the weekend, then they had to pick it up and deliver it to your site. I'd be willing to bet that they couldn't return any unused ice at the end of the weekend. So, considering their possible costs and likely losses, $7 bucks isn't outrageous. If they are indeed a fundraiser, they can't afford to lose money or the contest may not continue.

I guess the bottom line is... If you are concerned about the price of ice, fill up a 6 day cooler and bring your own.
