Default Competition Payouts

What do most of you see and like at comps for payouts. If its a 10k purse what is the best way to pay. Top 5 in each category and top 5 overall?
What are your thoughts.

^^^^^I'm with them. Payout top 10 in each category.. Typical, I only see top 2 in the overall paid out but it would be nice to pay out top 5. It's also nice to get a free entry for the next year as a payout in the overall.

Of course it "all depends" on purse size, teams, etc , but:

I like paying 10 in each category. (Being realistic, this is not a ton of dough for these places, but sometimes, especially for newer teams, any payout will provide encouragement.)

I ALSO like paying top 5 overall. I never understood why the 5th place chicken cook gets a check but the third place overall doesn't. (And I realize you had some walks to get third overall, but on degree of difficulty a 3rd overall is harder than a single category 5th.)

If not paying 3rd overall (or 4th or 5th) then next years entry (transferrable) is a nice touch. Rewarding the 'bubble boys'.

Like top 10 but at least announce 6-10 if not awarded something.

RGC-800
3rd-300
4th-free entry next year

1-500
2-300
3-200
4-150
5-100
6-75
7-50
8-35
9-25
10-25

I saw a contest last year try to pay too deep and it seemed crazy to me.

They initially were going to give the CG & RGC ...ZERO!

But thought giving 10th place in each catagory $25...WTF?

I don't care for the "everyones a winner here today" attitude.

My 2¢ would have added up to an extra $285 one weekend this summer when we did two comps in one weekend. We got 6 out of 8 calls, but all between 6th-9th. And given the fields, it was hard to complain.

I like a deeper payment schedule. Don't pay much attention to the total prize purse as long as we'll get our costs covered with a couple top 5 calls.

Case in point. Jennies Got Wood placed 6th in Ribs, Pork and Brisket and ended up 3rd over in Excelsior Springs,Mo. last year. They paid down to the top 5 and top 2 for overall. They did get ribbons for 6th place but no money at all for a job well done.

Yep, 72 teams to be exact. A tough bunch too.
