the 2011 season

ACA just anounced that will not be doing any shows what so ever in 2011 which is going to be a huge blow in the 2011 season they have been putting on a good 6 or 7 shows including a big 3x final every year for a really long time

which means we need to find more sponsors and shops to host some shows in 2011

I for one am willing to atleast do a couple single point events , I have the termlab as well as many others , if i can find a shop and some sponsors I will try and organize a double or tripple point event in 2011

so want to hear everyones thoughts and suggestions on shows for 2011 im sure we can find some new shops to step up and bring the shows

I would like to see some for less than $500.00 for a set of 48.
The PA system is another $100.00, sanctioning is $50.00, forms are $1.50 each, the judges & crew cost $700.00

To re-coupe the $1500.00 you'd need 60 people to buy in at $25.00 a head.

We had 37 competitors at our June show because it rained. We bet on the wrong day. It ended up costing me $1100.00 to put the event on. If I continued to bet the wrong weekends, it would really hurt my little business.
The trophies are usually the most expensive part of it. If each event could only lose a couple of hundred, then I would put more on.

They're also in Florida, so you'll be paying for shipping, duties, taxes and all of the crap that comes along with American shopping.
