    It's fairly simple. Everyone who want's to enter the calcutta pays an entry fee of what ever you decide, $5-$10-$20. Then there's an auction of all the entered shooters one at a time. When the auction is over you total up all the money, lets say $2,000. Now let's say you want to pay the four highest scores (ties divide) at 40%-30%-20%-10%. The buyer gets 70% of the purse, the shooter gets 30%. Now 1st place gets 40% of the total or $800 with the buyer getting $560 and the shooter getting $240 and so on for the next 3 highest scores. Hope this helps.

    It's much easier with George Cooks 3S program, but exactly as Eric explained it. Most of the calcuttas...(Special Event in Mt.) charge 10 entry fee and that goes into the money for the shooters.

    Most state's have laws banning calcutta's.....

    Now go tell the people running the big fishing tournaments....

    This year's White Marlin Open in O.C., MD had approx. $200K in the pot.

    Last year's Sailfish tournament in the Keys was $250K +.

    The key to a successful calcutta is getting buyers. Without the buyers the pot isn't very big and you might as well just have a regular shoot with options. We have a winter program calcutta that usually generates over $2000 with about 9 - 10 squads of shooters. Go to our website http://www.monroesportsmansclub.com and click on schedule for a layout of ours.
