      2019 Accounting Summary

      Prize Money Accounting Notes:

      • Any discrepancy between the prize money report above and the league accounting report is due to outstanding money owed, pre-payments made or prize money paid out.
      • Due to rounding weekly prize winnings may cause a slight imbalance between trade/waiver/fines money charged versus weekly prize money paid out.
      • The $150 discrepancy in prize winnings of $3,350 and the cumulative yearly entry dues of $3,500 is due to the $100 hosting fees and the "Run the Table" $50 prize money that is retained until a team accomplishes the feat.
