Managers, there seems to be some question on how the FHC Board of Directors handles the tournament money that comes in and goes out each tournament weekend, especially when we have a shortened game situation. Managers, all you or your Players have to do is just ask us, and we can give you a tournament rundown anytime you want. We do not keep secrets. Also, we are audited yearly.
An average tournament for us now is 70 teams, so that would be 70 x $250, which is $17,500.
In our scenario, we get in all of the games on Saturday (70 games) but get rained out on Sunday. Here would be the rundown in dollars.
- Umpires for 70 games = $4,690
- Game balls to teams = $1, 750
- Awards ($140 times 16 brackets) = $2,240
- Directors Fees and mileage = $2,150
- Hotel bill (Directors and Umpires) = $2,400
Total approximate Expenditures = $13,230
Teams would receive $26 per game per team for games not played.
70 games at $52 = $3,640
Total = $16,870
That leaves approximately $630 for the one tournament.
