I work for an EP, and in the past, most of our events were free admission except for competitions where the registration price was significantly lowered or where we donated the income from admissions to charities. This year, we've been charging admission at all of our events and some of the spectator's reactions to this have left me with some questions. Since most of my weekends are tied up working at the events the company I work for produces, I almost never get to go to other competitions. Is it rare to be charged admission these days? What do you usually pay to walk in the door at a local competition? What about a two day competition that's giving bids? Program directors, does an admission fee for your parents factor in to where you choose to compete?
