$$ is usually the answer to that question. For most people its got to be worth the cost of getting out to California to make it. The top 5 payout should at least cover the gas money they are going to spend getting there. I'm in Utah and its a 12 hour drive in good traffic. Its going to cost me north of 250 in just gas to get there. So if payout was like 600, 1000, 1500, 2000, and 2500 or something like that you could probably get some teams from the surrounding states. Gotta have a chance at not going home empty handed
As ya know Kev,the old CL shoot used to have years of 200 teams,with a $200 entry,there were a few teams from out east ocassionally but not great numbers.I dont know.I often wonder where all the old CL shoot shooters have gone?
I wonder as well but if we can get to 100 boats I think that kind of payout would bring boats from many states . I have my family committed to help especially doing the BBQ that saves a lot for the payout.
Yeah that just isn't happening much anymore..besides it's a lot easier to split cash. The boats they gave away at the time we're only about 18k new also. 200 boats would probably be in the 10k to win range
