Everything looked good to me except at the very bottom...

Why would 5th per category get $100 and then also note that 6th -10th also get the same $100 per category ?

Trying to give away the 15K. I didnt feel that was a problem, should I change 6-10 to $50.00?

I would make it $50 instead of $100 for 6-10 per category and then move that extra $1000 to the GC and RGC to make it $3K and $2K

(assuming trophies/ribbons or metals are being handed out as well).

Arlie-
I like keeping the $100 payout to 10th. $100 will at least make you feel like you made money on the catagory. Makes it a memorable 10th -- and you would come back again.

Not sure what the size of the $15K contest is... but if you have 50 Teams.... being in the top 10 is deserving of the nice chedda!

I agree with Andy. I'd keep it spread out and not just for Top 2 overall and Top 5 in categories.

I agree with Andy as well. But I really like to see paydays for 3rd through 5th overall. It would be especially nice for us as when we do well at a contest, it's usually 3rd to 5th place , not GC or RGC and 90% of the time, those don't pay.

paying out like that would keep more teams coming back. An award of any size makes a person feel good rather then pushing their pit off a cliff.

I like it too. I haven't gotten close to 1st or 2nd overall yet, but I do like the payout instead of just a ribbon for 6-10 where I do sometimes finish. As stated before it feels good and can help the funds for the next contest so my son-in-laws with less funding can play along and that gets me in more contests. It could be the difference between me doing full comps instead of having to settle for some backyard comps.
