Let's do some math:
SCA direct expenses, direct costs to King's Arrow, profit to sponsoring
group, amortised costs to King's Arrow facility, taxes, etc.
Profit margin of 5% to King's Arrow ( my estimate is on the high side,
probably closer to 2 % of gate, but we'll go with 5%)
Non skid pathways,4' wide, properly mounded gravel, $2000 per mile
Same in asphalt $3500 per mile
Same in simple concrete $4000 per mile
Same in nicely patterned simulated cobblestone/paving blocks concrete
$6000 per mile
Miles of pathways needed go from major camping areas to list fields,
barns, merchants row, etc., minimum of 3 miles, up to
3 times that to run paths to all camping areas.
Minimum $6000, up to $72,000.
