The Desert Duel '22 Financial Transparency

In an effort to be as transparent as possible on the Desert Duel tournament costs, organizational fees, and expenses for venders, social event and hotel costs, here is a breakdown of an estimated cost to bring back the Desert Duel to its magnificence.  If any profit comes from the tournament it will go to help build Desert water polo, in and around the Phoenix area.
