He were my expenses from last year. I will be unable to attend this year, unfortunately:

Gas: 30gallons round trip for me (split in half with a friend)
Lodging: free at my parents house, but camping on site is free, I think
Food: Meals for 3 days
Entry:$70
Paint: one case for $50

I think I only paid $140ish for the whole thing, not including parts I bought from Ryan, and the odd knick knack. Plan more for the swap meet, or bring some markers to trade/sell and it could pay for the event. I sold stuff for a friend of mine whose wife had cancer (she passed away a few months after) and made about $300, half in gold coins (thanks blackrain ).

camping is free, but reserving a site is $5
if you dont pay the $5, its first come first serve

I am sad to say that I will not be able to make it out. I have too much commitment in the tournament scene that I often forget about the whole other side of paintball. Hopefully next season I can take a step back from tournaments and just play for fun.

I'm budgeting ~$250 for the whole thing. $130 of that is registration, paint (one case), the free dinner, and some of the extra pre-order deals you can throw in with registration. Another $45-50 for gas (carpooling), and then the rest will be for concessions and extra money.
I shot about 4 cases last year , played 2 days and with hotel food ect I was out around 700$ hotel was for friday night till monday morning.

Hopefully, the family and I will be there. We will have to see about actually making it, since someone decided that the car was too nice, and decided to ram into me on my way into work. We will plan on getting a rental anyway, if we can make it. Most likely playing Yellow, as I like to keep my wife and daughter with the Irregulators.

Going to register in the next few days.

Last May was my first SG and I had a blast. My two friends and I agreed, halfway through Saturday,that we must make SG an annual event. We also agreed that paying for everything with gold dollar coins was really fun (the lady selling paint was pissed off by the time she got to the third one of us in line).

For budget, unless you are only playing pump, I would expect to go through 2-3 cases. The all-day part without the down time of walk-on play and the target rich environment of the DMZ had me going through a lot of paint. Friday night can't-see-nothing-game, not so much paint....Bring some firewood, flashlights, and food from home and your good. Might want to bring some extra money for the daily raffles. Sooo much stuff to get each day, and last year the money was going towards a good cause.

Anyone know what side is red starting from? The yellow starting place was good and I am not sure how far red had to walk to re-spawn from the DMZ..
