Tom, it's pretty simple. There is a difference between an entry fee and a registration fee. In my book (opinion) an entry fee means monies that go into a tournament prize fund and a registration fee is a fee usually reserved for administrative costs.

Having a guaranteed spot in the event is important to the players an us. We need to know in advance how many players are going to attend to be sure we can accomodate all of them. Also, the players know in advance that they will have a guaranteed place in the event.

If we only took names (call ins) we would probably have almost every player say they may attend, and thus we would have close to 3,000 players registered for the event. by taking a nominal registration fee (only $30). We are almost guaranteed that the number of players that send in there registration fee will be at the event.

Also, don't forget we are putting up the $25,000 prize fund no matter how many players attend.

I hope this answered your question.

Respectfully,

Mike Janis

Mike,

So the $30 registration fee is for the Viking Tour administration costs.. of course this for players that have already paid a Viking tour registration fee (yearly cost of $10) and played in a Viking tour tournament.

Entry fee is $0 and if you want to play in the tournament you have to pay for the guaranteed spot.

Got it..

Thanks for the quick reply Mike.. good luck.
