I was looking at how the bugeater gt is a school fundraiser and was wondering how difficult would it be to set up and organize and would there be a profit big enough for a fundraiser and if it was held at bentonville high school would people show up

A couple points:
1.Tim (the guy who puts it on) does immense amounts of work to make it happen.
2. Being a teacher, he sets this stuff up and I'm assuming forces his kids to work it like a slave force
3. The school it is at is on par with a college campus with its facilities. Bentonville is nice too, so this one is not so much.
4. I'm sure there are a lot of legal issues, political issues, and explaining of the hobby that goes into getting the school district to let you do it.
5. Funding. Tim somehow talks people into donating most of the prize support. Find someone with a silver tongue.

Long story short, it would be a mountain of work. Putting on a shop tournement is one thing, a GT caliber tournament is another. Just ask Brian at TSE!

My main concern would be terrain and tables.

Accommodations for out of towners, if you plan on running a big event. Prize support versus entry fee. You don't want to eat any costs in a fund raiser.

Not to be critical, cause I love your spirit, but you need to go to some GT's before you pitch running one. They are an immense amount of work and a fair bit of money.

I think bdix is giving some good advice in suggesting that you talk to Brian from TSE. He's ran GT's and could give you good advice.

I think it would be a practical start to run a small local 10-16 man tournament. Get a feel for what it takes to manage it on a small scale. Do a couple of those, break even on costs, then start putting together what it takes to make it larger. Say 20-30 man tournament- what Bugeater started at its first year. If you can get that to work successfully, you take it up to the next level. There is a certain progression to starting up a GT. Brian can tell you, he didn't start out with the numbers he got this year.
