What is the added? Am I doing the math wrong, or do the entry fees exceed the returned money?

I.E. Donald Duck's Big Quacker ~ $150 entry $15 registration /Double elimination OPEN to Pro Players!! Entry fees = $165. x 128 = $21,120.00

Donald Duck's Big Quacker Event Total Purse of over $16,000.00 based on 128 entries.???

Not to mention, that is one very expensive place. In fact they just raised the fees I think today.

Yes, You are correct.. I screwed up! UGH!!!!!! /ccboard/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

The Correct amount is $17,640 in the Big Quacker! PLUS hopefully much added money. Still waiting on sponsorships.

The $15.00 is deducted from the $150. = $135 x 128 = $17,280. It is not an additional $15 on top of the $150.

Hope this is more clear now.

Makes more sence, thanks.

My post's always need extra eyes since mine go cross eyed typing all this stuff! /ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gif

As far as the prices for Disney, we have a great rate at $99 a night and discounted park hopper passes and other perks.

The Coronado Springs Resort is one of the nicest properties on Disney. I hope that all who attend, will enjoy their visit and bring the kids or grand kids in my case.

Happy Holidays Popcorn ~ Hope to see you there!
