Hi Ben,

I tried to register but could not get past the cooksite size. It requires an entry in the field and the default of 20x20 is not being accepted. I put in "other" and then commented requesting the 20x20 but that added $50 to the invoice. I'll wait to hear your response.

Ben - The Santa Anita website indicates an early bird price of 200.00 if paid by 2/10/12. Is this correct?


$10,000 in Prize Money!

Entry fee is $250 and includes:
A chance to compete for $10,000 in prize money.
20'X20' preparation location (larger areas require an additional $50)
Power (upgrades available for an additional $25)
Note: Early bird fee's are $200 if all documentation is received by event organizers by Friday, February 10, 2012.
Please note the required health department documents must be coordinated between teams and event organizers.

Ryan, Ben is handling the sign up part of this event in conjunction with SA Park. He will be back from a business trip tomorrow and will be able to answer your question then.

A single PC ticket will have a two dollar value. They will be sold in packages. The portion size and price of your product is up to you but must be sold in two dollar increments. PC will only be on Saturday. Gates open at 10:30. You can begin PC at any time and continue throughout the entire event. Although you can continue to sell your product to the end of the day, your PC vote tickets must be turned in by a yet to be set time, probably between 3-4:00. We will provide you with an exact time within the next few days.

Ben & Rick-

Looking forward to the Santa Anita contest. I just tried to sign up and requested extra space and am willing to pc. We understand the $250 entry fee and $50 for more space, but is it really $150 for the Health Department? Ouch. I love to pc. We just won the pc prize at Havasu. But $150 for a first time event is rather steep for a first time contest. Can you give me more information on how accessible the race fans will be to the area we will be in. Any info you can provide would be very helpful. Thank guys.
Steve

Steve,

Anyone with a ticket to the racetrack has access to the infield. The racetrack is advertising the event on their website already.

Benny,

I understand that. How easy will it be for them to cross over to the infield? I have not been to Santa Anita before, but have been to Hollywood Park and Del Mar and do not remember seeing people in the infield. If their are bridges or tunnels from the center of the grandstand, great. But if the normal crowd is going to have to walk a ways, I am thinking most of the regulars would not make the trip. Please understand that to sell 1000 to 3000 samples is going to take quite an initial investment, which I would be thrilled to do, but I need more information in order to commit $2000 to $3000 for meat and supplies.

Steve
