Thanks for the help guys, maybe we can bring back the pump division for DC.
Well I don't know what you can normally get a case of paint for at a national event, but I assume its in the $30-$50 area a case if you don't have connections. I'm pretty sure we wouldn't use more than 4 cases even if we were to make it all the way to finals.
DC is a 10hr drive from Lake Placid, NY... and with booking one hotel night I would have my guys bring $300 for worst case scenario kind of deal.
This is what I figured:
+ $500 entry
+ $300 gas
+ $200 hotel
+ $200 paint
+ $250 food
=$1450/5 would be $290 per person.
