Site Cost/Person $ _______________
Ancillary Support Cost/Person $ _______________

STEP 6: Work out your profit margin. How much will the event make over costs? Round up the total cost per person to the nearest whole dollar, with the understanding that this figure may be changed later.
ROUNDED AMOUNT $ ________________
This will be the site fee per person for those attending for the day (day trip fee.) If there will be additional costs for some people (for camping, feast, etc.), see below.
STEP 7: (OPTIONAL) Determine the Feast Fee $ ________________
You will need to consult with the head cook to get this figure.
See Worksheet B on how to calculate this.
STEP 8: (OPTIONAL) Determine the Camping Fee $ ________________
Sometimes, a site will have both day activities and camping available, and an extra fee will need to be charged those who are camping. Determine this by any extra fees the site charges for camping spaces divided by number of spaces available. This calculation will likely vary depending on the site used. If you have any questions on how to compute this, consult with your assistant autocrat or the seneschal.
STEP 9: Now you can determine the price you will need to charge per person. Now is the time to determine if you wish to give price breaks to children. You can figure this based on the number of people with families who are likely to attend. Again, consult your assistant autocrat or seneschal if you have questions.
