The few comps I have been to, the main complaint, well not the main complaint but definetly in the top 5 is ICE and WATER, followed by elctricity to some extent.
If you could have someone going around on golf carts or similar vehicle delivering ice, that's great. Water in several different locations, not just one central spot. Large generators for those that need them.
Prize money appears that it is starting to be an issue with rising gas prices and all, whether the prize money is sufficient to make ends meet or break even, if a team wins.
Just some thoughts.
