As a past orgainizer and racer I've wondered if racers would prefer
1. A $20 entry fee for a 2 day event, with no T-shirt, lunches,
trophies or party?
2. The normal $50+ fee with all of the extras mentioned above?
Personally I don't mind paying extra to be catered to if the lunches,
party food and beverages and T-shirts and trophies are nice. Then again I'd
rather pack my own, I already have 50 car rags, I'm usually sunburnt and to
beat to attend the party, and I don't often win a trophy plus I'd have $30
more to pay for the next event.
Seriously my real concern is $50 entry fees are keeping all but the
***s away... A local event we had going attracted 91 entries of which
26 were locals in 93 when it was just $30, this year the entry fee was $45 -
we had only 8 local entries.
