Division Tournament Entry Fees

 

The entry fees should be fixed to cover expenses incurred at the qualifier events for awards and to cover the cost of bringing in qualified referees to officiate at these events.

 

Late Fees: In order to better prepare for these events, the division officers need to have a good estimate of tournament participation.  The establishment of a late fee structure to encourage pre-registration, which costs nothing, and discourage late registration or registration at the tournament. The system would be that timely registration be cut off at 2 calendar weeks before the first day of the event. Entries received between this time and the day before the event would be assessed a late penalty of 1.5 times the entry fee. Entries at the door (including the day before the tournament) will be assessed a late penalty of  double the entry fees.  

 

Revenue Disbursement for Division

 

There are several scenarios that can happen for a divisional event:

o       The hosting club provides the venue, but no logistical support for the event

o       The hosting club provides the venue and limited logistical support for the event

o       The hosting club provides the venue and full logistical support for the event

 

 Definitions

o       Full Logistical Support: the host club provides the venue, sets up and tears down the strips, provides armory service for the tournament with QUALIFIED personnel, provides volunteers for timekeeping and scorekeeping and provides meals for all tournament staff; Essentially they do everything but running the actual events which will be done by the division officers present.

o       Limited Logistical Support: the host club performs some of the above functions, but some of these responsibilities are left up to the division officers to perform.

 

Disbursement Schedule:

The assumption will be made that the running of the event is 50% of the work and the logistical support outlined above is 50% of the work in making the event happen. A club that provides full logistical support will therefore get 50% of the profits from the event. A club providing some of the functions will get an appropriate percentage of the profits, with providing the venue being considered 5% of the work.
