Is there a minimum number who must enter in an intermediate or advanced division to trigger a merch payout?
I am already paying out 100% of entry up front. After my costs are covered, I'll be able to go over 100% of entry. You can count on at least a 100% payout. Sorry, I'm not divulging what my costs are, hope you understand.
In reality, I already do this. Kanza for example - your entry was $22. You received a disc with retail value of $15 - $17, plus a Innova Mini Driver, retails for $4. Don't recall what your payout was. $10 - $12? What you didn't see is the PDGA registration fee, PDGA per-player fee, etc., that I pay for.
So, if there is only 1 Intermediate Rec Women - it will be $20 payout. If more than 'X', it may be more than $20 per person. 'X' has not been fully decided upon.
Sorry if I lead on too much. This is the first tournament where I'm not providing an upfront player pack and forwarding all of it to payouts. Trying something different, including an across-the-board $20 Amateur entrance fee.
