The Ball of Spray (BOS) cash prize entry fee is $225 for everyone who enters. The entry fee is how the purse id funded and to be fair to everyone there will be no complementary entries.
The BOS will be run as a class L. However, if you do not want your score to go to the IWWF ranking list then you will not have to purchase the $25 IWWF license, and you will ski under class E. This will not affect how you will compete for prize money what soever, everyone has the same opportunity to win the top prize as anyone else that is entered.
If you are an overall skier and want to ski the 3 rounds of cash prize, the first 2 preliminary rounds will count for your 2 overall scores. The cost for skiing 2 rounds of 3-event overall and the cash prize Ball of spray is
Class L: $365 ($140 2 Rds T&J + $225 3 Rds Slalom cash prize)
Class C: $305 ($80 2 Rds T&J + $225 3 Rds Slalom cash prize – class E)
The OLR will calculate entry fees correctly for individual class C, E, & L events and the BOS $. However, when you combine BOS with other events it will not calculate correctly. In this case, simply go through the OLR including signing the waiver, stop at payment, and contact the registrar to arrange the correct payment.
