With you 100% Poncho,

Some venues, however require a certain participation to make it cost effective.

Few hosts can afford to float an event and then take a bath on the fixed costs of the venue.

Often events at "other use" facilities set a minimum revenue threshold and Game organizers are on the hook for that nut to get the game going.

For example FR requires 70+ paid players to get the field for exclusive use.. This is by all measures a pretty large game.. If I wanted to "reserve the field" I'd need to pony up $1800 and then hope I can sell the event.

Even TTAC3 has a Minimum participant threshold to make the use of space worth it ( and my time ) even though the best games always have fewer attendees of higher quality.
