In recent threads about doing pool events I noticed one of the main concerns of the promoters is the cash out of pocket before doing the event and the risk of losing or getting a minimal return on your investment. After reading those posts I thought I would share this with you. The information below is based on just 1 weekend of Viking Tour events.

This weekends event is at Magoo's in Tulsa, OK. For me to get there I have to travel on 8 different Highways / St. Rts. for a total distance of 1,533 Miles roundtrip and spend 5 nights in hotels and 23 hours driving. 2 Weeks ago and along with the last 2 months of internet advertising I mailed out 1100 PostCards Flyers to the players, pool rooms, pro-shops and billiards related business in the OK region (and surrounding states).

Associated Costs =
Gas 150 Gallons = $525 (I still need a new truck - Mileage is only getting worse.)
Hotels = $260 (Maybe I should get a MotorHome. Wait that would be double the gas.)
Stamps, printing, labels = $415.00
sub total = $1,200

Added money to events = $2,000
sub total = $3,200

Associated business costs to operate the tour on a per event basis not including any of the above $450

Total expenses for this event = $3,650

Dang, looks like no paychech for MJ this week.

Time spent working in a pool room and traveling and playing pool for a living = PRICELESS

Basically, I need 83.3333333 paid players to show up at the event just to break even. Especially since all Non-Pro Players get FREE Tour Cards for this event.

I hope some of you Guys and Gals can make it to the event.

OKLAHOMA on May 3-4 = $2,000 Added + Free Tour Cards from the Viking Tour

Since the Viking Tour does not have many events in Oklahoma we are offering FREE tour cards (a $30 value) to all non-pro players that reside in OKLAHOMA, KANSAS, MISSOURI, ARKANSAS, LOUISIANA, and TEXAS that participate in either event. All non-pro players will only pay the entry fee for this event.
