Quoted from stevevt:
What are the payouts?
All entry fees are paid out to the participants minus any direct costs for running the event. Payouts are based on entries collected, which are impossible to predict since we do not require pre-registration and have a variable entry format.
The only way to have a fixed payout would be to estimate participation and then pay out some portion less then that to avoid taking a loss, keeping the rest. I assume this is not an approach participants would prefer, but if for some reason someone thinks this is a good idea please send me a PM and we can discuss it.
